Exhibition Trends

Lifestyle stage trends
There were many exhibits of digital network products and technology. Many companies displayed their new products for the BS digital broadcasting that was set to begin in December of that year. In addition a lot of products such as digital recorders, compact memory cards, PDA's, PCs, mobile phones, and Bluetooth-enabled products made this show a dream come true for Audio/Visual and IT enthusiasts, and gave us a look at the lifestyle of the future.

Business stage trends
Household electric appliances such as mobile phones and digital cameras have become conspicuous, overtaking personal computers which had been leading the semiconductor marker. This movement has advanced along with the development of broadband. For the production of these types of appliances, lots of new technology, parts, and materials are needed, and they must clear myriad hurdles such as weight reduction, miniaturization, power consumption, and soundproofing. Through the exhibitions and presentations we could clearly see motivation, technology, and developments to meet these demands.

Industry stage trends
The digital network and IT era is upon us, and there were numerous products and technology that interoperated with things in the business and lifestyle stages.
