The current global economic situation also influences the participants of the PMA 2011 International Trade Show. Renowned companies experience major reorganizations, affecting mainly at local level, where major changes are made. When it comes to digital imaging, the world is geologically roughly divided into three parts, America, Europe & Asia. It seems that the manufacturers have decided among them- selves that the PMA is specifically focused on the U.S.A. market, including the associated market strategies, while Europe is served by IFA and Photokina.
