Organizer Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association



The Broadcast Equipment Exhibition, the original name of Inter BEE, was first held in 1965 by the National Association of Commercial Broadcasters in Japan (NAB-J) as a joint exhibition with the 2nd Technical Report Conference on Commercial Broadcasting at the Invention Hall in Toranomon, Tokyo, with some 12 companies exhibiting products. The second exhibition was held in 1966 under the joint sponsorship of NAB-J and the Electronic Industry Association (currently known as the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association/JEITA). From the third exhibition in 1967, the venue was moved to the Science Museum located in Kitanomaru Park, Tokyo, which had just opened at the time. The fourth exhibition in 1968 was held under the main sponsorship of the Electronic Industry Association with the NAB-J as a supporting organization.

And from the tenth exhibition in 1974, the Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) also became a cooperating organization. Established specifically for the benefit of broadcast equipment users, the exhibition garnered much attention within the industry to earn it a prominent position among domestic exhibitions.

For the forty-third exhibition in 2007, the name of the event was published as “Inter BEE” in a move meant to attract media outside of broadcasting. “Inter BEE online” was set up to reach a broader audience via the website, and exhibit information and news was presented in news articles and in video format.

In 2011, with the transition to terrestrial digital broadcasting complete (except in the three prefectures in north-eastern Japan), a new cross media division was established to consolidate proposals for new media using no longer used bandwidth and businesses other than digital content broadcasting. The organization moved forward with the new goal of becoming a comprehensive media exhibition incorporating IPTV, Mobile TV, digital signage, digital cinema, 3D and digital content.

A showcase for the world’s most advanced technologies, Inter BEE continues to respond to the needs of professionals in the field. By incorporating both Japanese and international markets, the exhibition has become a steady channel of industry information to its target audience. For exhibitors and visitors alike, Inter BEE continues to be a forum for effective exchange of meaningful information and the creation of business opportunities.
