GUANGZHOU, China -- The organizers of the 2012 GTI Asia China Expo report that a distinguished roster of international leaders in electronic game design and manufacture has been assembled for the upcoming event, which will be held at the China Import and Export Fair Pazhou Complex here from Dec. 16 through 18.
(The Chinese amusement show was originally scheduled for Sept. 23-25, but was postponed because of its time proximity to the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.)
The amusement industry has been adversely affected by the global economy, the show’s management noted, but increasing stability makes it likely that the show will be a catalyst for the release of pent-up demand, as the new year approaches.
Indicative of the impending recovery is enthusiastic international support for the show. Inquiries have been received from buyers from around the world -- and even more prospects will attend from China, the show’s organizing committee reports. The Japan Amusement Machinery Manufacturers Association and leading Japanese companies, including Namco Bandai Games and Sega, have signed on as GTI Expo exhibitors.
Noteworthy Chinese exhibitors include Wahlap, Shiyu, Guangzhou Sealy Electronic Technology, UNIS, Mecpower, Baohui, Macrown, Tong Li, Super Wing and Belrare. China's game manufacturers predict that they will supply 80% of the equipment on the global market in the near future.
The China Import and Export Fair Pazhou Complex is the largest exhibition venue in Asia, with an indoor area covering 130,000 square meters (almost 1,400,000 sq.ft.) and six exhibition halls. It opened in 2002.
