As someone who attends probably more CE/HA trade shows than anyone else in the media, we asked the celebrated US- based “Into Tomorrow” host Dave Graveline what his thoughts are of the CE China show and how he will be working here…
CE China is one of those growing trade shows that we believe will become an even more important show in the years to come. In addition to our friends from Messe Berlin asking me to moderate some panels and introduce some keynote speakers, I intend to once again gather several interviews from exhibitors for our broadcasts in the following weeks. Our show airs on nearly 200 AM & FM radio stations around the US, stations in Canada and several other sources including TuneIn, Mobile Broadcast Network, iTunes, iHeartRadio, Sprint Radio, TiVo, Stitcher, Podzilla and many others every weekend. Into Tomorrow is also heard around the world on the Armed Forces Networks in several other countries. The ONLY international show covering Consumer Tech exclusively for 22 years now, Into Tomorrow & ITTV highlight the way technology is changing our lives! From Gadgets & Gizmos to Smartphones & Tablets, Home Theater, Digital Photography, Car Audio, Security & Navigation, High Tech Recreation, HDTV, Technology On-The-Go, GPS and everything else that people are talking about. We also frequently broadcast from many trade shows and CE events around the world.
IN TERMS OF DOING THE SHOW IN SHENZHEN, IT’S A VERY INNOVATIVE PART OF CHINA AND THEIR GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN EXTREMELY COOPERATIVE IN ASSISTING WITH ALL ASPECTS OF CE CHINA
What’s good about doing the show in Shenzhen, and what sets this show apart from other ones in China?
First and foremost, it’s always a pleasure to work with the incredible staff from IFA. They truly “get it” and do their absolute best to help not only the exhibitors and visitors of their shows, but also to ensure that members of the media are able to obtain the interviews and access that we need. In terms of doing the show in Shenzhen, it’s a very innovative part of China and their government has been extremely cooperative in assisting with all aspects of CE China. This show can really help those businesses who are already in the Chinese market but more importantly, it can help many who would like to enter this market and do business with the people of China.
This year, there will be an International Daily – CE China Daily. What are your thoughts about this?
I suspect that the International Daily for CE China will be much like the publication for IFA in that it truly highlights the exhibitors and helps to tell their story. It also assists many members of the media like myself who are looking for interesting angles and additional story ideas.
