PENANG is claiming a high-end victory for Malaysia’s north by attracting an audio-visual event exhibition beyond the sector’s stronghold of Kuala Lumpur.
The Northern AV Show 2022 is supported by Penang Convention and Exhibition Bureau and will take place over the weekend at Ascott Gurney Penang.
The high-end audio-video industry is mainly concentrated in Kuala Lumpur, said a Penang bureau spokesman. ”However, there is great potential in Penang to develop this industry as there is a vast interest among hi-fi dealers and retailers located in Kuala Lumpur to establish a branch in Penang so that it can be their ‘hub’ for the northern region.”
Wilson Teoh, director of event organisers Gryphon Production, said: “It is most exciting to work with the Penang State Government on Northern AV Show 2022. For without its support this would not have been possible. For the longest of time, such an event has only been held in Kuala Lumpur. Penang, with its vibrant growth, made sense.
“It will provide people in the northern region an opportunity to attend this sort of event and also for the exhibitors to reach out to the northern market.”
