Unicorn (Beast) Show
This year, the Guangzhou Exhibition still adheres to the positioning of "seeing and hearing boundlessly and intelligently creating the future", focusing on the domestic market. If one of the highlights of the scene is not to be missed, the editor thinks it is a unicorn (beast) show. Wang Chunsen, the chief planner of Xiujia Technology, said: This time, he and the organizer have tried to create a new form of display that is different from traditional products, and united with Beijing Yingwen Space, Shanghai Rentian, Yuning Brothers, Guangxiang Technology, and Deshi Optoelectronics (DSE), Weiyou Acoustics (VUE), ACME, Jieyi Machinery (KAYO electric motor and CNC system), Ningbo Haoguan Electric, TOPTRUSS, Sioote and other partners have integrated the company’s latest products, Technology, through the presentation of sound and light, has created a shocking stage (show) experience for everyone. This is also the boldest first attempt at a domestic exhibition to break through.

Changes and trends
In this uncertain market change, every great change experienced by the world has made people clearly realize that the future will definitely be profoundly changed. Every enterprise is subdividing the vertical market. Whether it is the performance market, the fixed installation of conferences and muti-functional venues, and system integration, every enterprise is looking for its own position.
Challenges and trials
In 2020, the biggest challenge that manufacturers will face is the shortage of chips and the rising prices of raw materials. Does the company have any solutions?
The R&D personnel from Yunchi said: The rise in raw materials and the extension of the delivery period are objective problems that must be faced. As a power amplifier manufacturer, we can only innovate technology in research and development.
As a manufacturer of high-end electronic components, Qin Kaijin, the head of Gabriel China in the United States, said: Raw materials are rising, and supply cannot keep up with demand. However, we cannot increase prices to customers drastically at once, and can only respond to market conditions. The price is fine-tuned, and more costs need to be balanced internally.
Quench Wang from ACME said: The shortage of chips has become the norm, and the entire impact will continue to penetrate into the normal operation of the downstream terminal market. Raw materials have risen, prices have risen, and the delivery cycle has been lengthened. It even faces difficulties in recruiting companies. But fortunately, ACME continues to promote the production of automation equipment, hoping to withstand the impact of the market.
Bao Junmin, the person in charge of Kumar Audio, said: The current inventory can be supported until the second quarter, and then plans to spend high prices on acquisitions to meet existing order requirements.
Ji Xiang, senior director of the Eike International Marketing Center, said: This current situation also requires companies to have a pre-judgment mechanism, whether it is to increase inventory or the direction of investment in the capital chain, it needs to be controlled accurately.
How to stand on the new journey of 2021 and start again? In foreign countries where the epidemic is still severe, how to adjust the strategic deployment of enterprises? I hope to listen to more views from everyone, and watch the industry's current changes and fixes together.
