As the technology develops throughout the world, from vacuum tubes to modern computer, from black and white TV to colored ones, transistor radio to DVD player and a lot more changes to advance technology. Korean electronic products have transformed their shapes too from a simple product like a vacuum tube radio to advanced products like a mobile phone, IPTV and semiconductor, rapid increase in production of electronic products in Korea is brought by the significant development in technology and increased demands of Korean electronic products throughout the world.
Yes, it is well-known that Korea is very popular on electronic devices, in fact Korean electronics are ranked at the 4th in the world electronics production. That’s why when you walk around here in Korea you can find electronic warehouses of famous electronic brands, there’s one near us and every time I passed by to supermarket they always have a streamer for an event, I seldom go inside because it is too embarrassing if I always check the gadgets and never buy anything, I am saving for a Windows 7 laptop though.
I just heard about the upcoming Korea Electronics Show (KES) – http://www.kes.org this year (see below), according to what I have read the first fair was held on 1969 at Deoksu Palace, Seoul and after so many years of success and being part of 52 years history of the Korean electronic industry and a window for overseas trade they are now on their 42nd show which is will be open on October.
