Three separate exhibitions related to imaging opened on May 8 at a single venue in Ho Chi Minh City with around 120 companies from Vietnam and 30 other countries and territories taking part.

They are Vietnam International Photo and Imaging, Vietnam International Broadcast and AV Show, and Vietnam International LED/OLED Technology Show.

Some famous names like Canon, Pentax, HTC, Oppo, Rang Dong, and Dien Quang are present at the three-day event.

The exhibitions provide companies an opportunity to show off their most modern and advanced technologies and equipment such as LED/OLED products and components, LED/OLED lighting and applications, cameras and camcorders, lenses for them, headphones and earphones, and amplifiers.

They also offer manufacturers and distributors of the products to look for partners in Vietnam.

"The event will bring to domestic businesses, scientists, and others interested a broader and more practical picture of hi-tech and modern industries and help forecast development trends," Vu Van Khiem, general director of the Ministry of Science and Technology's Department for Southern Affairs, said.

Nick Yoshida, president and CEO of Canon Marketing Vietnam, said: "Digital imaging is truly flourishing, particularly in Vietnam. So much so that it is rapidly establishing itself as a central aspect of the culture here.

"We are happy and excited to find so many photographers, ladies and men, young and mature, from professionals to enthusiasts and beginners, who are expressing their passion and creativity, using our extensive range of imaging products, from input to output."

The three-day exhibitions are on at the Sai Gon Exhibition Convention Centre in District 7 and hope to welcome 30,000 visitors.-VNA
