The first KOBA was held in 1991 co-organised by Korea E & EX and KOBETA (The Korea Broadcasting Engineers & Technicians Association) for the enhancement of the Korean broadcasting culture and the development of the image, sound and lighting industry in Korea
KOBA2017 took up a total of 27,997sqm in COEX Hall A, C, D and presented next generation broadcast services and the future of image, sound and lighting industry by 932 companies from 32 countries, including 189 domestic manufacturing companies.
During the KOBA Show, more than 80 international broadcasting technology conferences are hosted by KOBETA (The Korea Broadcasting Engineers & Technicians Association). And the sound-related technical seminars, organised by KASA (Korea Association of Sound Artists) and Acoustical Society of Korea, provide an opportunity to acquire information specifically for broadcast audio.
The global "convergence" trend creates a dynamic market through the participation of creative consumers and innovative technology reaching beyond the traditional barriers between technology, services and industry. KOBA provides an opportunity to explore a new conception of broadcasting and the modernisation of the video, audio and lighting industry.
