Electronics Extravaganza in KES 2011

When someone tells you to "be smart" what do you do? Most people would start looking around and trying to spot the problem before its mentioned in the conversation. Some other people might say "I am, always." But this year, if someone tells you to "be smart" you can instantly reply "Yes, I'm going to the 42nd Korea Electronics Show." Because that's the motto.
Be Smart, the 42nd Korea Electronics Show (KES), begins this October. From the 12th to the 15th this year, KES will once again showcase the IT icons of the nation. This year the show is expected to emphasize the convergence between software and hardware. How will software meet hardware to brighten up the IT industry as well as improving the quality of our lives? The answers lie within KES 2011.
> Smart Korea Conferences

KES will not only be holding a huge electronics expo, but also various conferences and talks on future government policies regarding IT and various government ministries. For example, the Ministry of Defense will be meeting various firms about installing IT systems on ships, while the Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries will be looking to find IT solutions on growing cabbage.

These conferences and meetings will provide insights into how companies can develop their products in the future as well, allowing them to create more and better IT solutions that the government might require in the future.

> World Marketplace for IT

KES will also act as a marketplace for R&D suppliers such as universities, research firms and research institutes to market their products. Without natural resources or infrastructure, currently the strength in the Korean IT industry lies in its ability to develop technology. The KES will be the place for them to show off their end results. Buyers will be happy too; what better place to find new technology all together in one place than KES! Currently around domestic 50,000 visitors are scheduled to attend as well as 2,000 foreign buyers. Distributors from India, Russia, Canada, Japan, China and Indonesia are expected to attend as well.

> The Show to be At

KES has always strived to be the expo where people wanted to be. While the KES has always entertained attendees through the various kiosk displays and aesthetic designs, the highlight has to be the opening ceremony - a 40 year old tradition that will continue this year as well. The latest technology was always used to show entertaining and thought provoking opening shows, alongside top 'Korean Wave' stars performing onstage - another 'software' that is the hottest trend nowadays as well.
