SET EXPO 2015, the main business and technology event for broadcasting and new media in Latin America, will take place August 23-27 in São Paulo, Brazil. SET, the Brazilian Society of Television Engineers and producer of SET EXPO, is inviting its international partners to visit the expo.
For Olímpio J. Franco, president and founding partner of SET, the importance of SET Expo is the event’s ability to bring together the entire broadcasting network. Consisting of a major equipment, products and services fair and a congress, the scope of SET Expo includes both the major manufacturers on the world market, and industry specialists and thinkers.
“The Fair and the Congress present opportunities for exchanges between the areas comprising the industry, in addition to creating possibilities for closing business deals throughout Latin America,” said Olímpio.
At its 2014 edition, SET Expo hosted over 15,000 media and technology professionals; and exhibitors and attendees from every continent, including exhibitors in the international pavilions of Great Britain, Germany, Japan and Scandinavia. More than 200 exhibitors representing over 400 brands covered in excess of 200,000 square feet of space.
National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) which puts on NAB show, the world’s largest annual conference and expo for professionals who create, manage and distribute entertainment across all platforms, already confirmed its presence at SET Expo 2015.
“Our partnership had borne fruit not only for Brazilians, but also for the U.S. public visiting our event,” Olímpio added.
Simultaneously with the Fair, SET is organizing a series of events.
