Shanghai Smart Home Technology Will Launch This Fall
The organizers of Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT) have confirmed they will collaborate with China Smart Home Industry Alliance (CSHIA) to launch a new technical fair – Shanghai Smart Home Technology (SSHT) this fall.
The debut show will be held concurrently with its sister event, SIBT, from Sept. 23-25 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai.
The two shows are expected to host 280 exhibitors, utilizing 15,000 square meters of exhibition space. In total, 18,000 visitors are expected from a wide range of sectors, including system integrators, architects, engineers and property developers.
As an influential association within China’s smart home industry, CSHIA’s members include leading enterprises and industry elites of the entire production chain.
The alliance aims at facilitating industry development and technology exchange by establishing standards, providing trainings and offering networking opportunities to industry players.
The organizers of SIBT include Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade – Shanghai Pudong Sub-Council and Shanghai Hongshan Exhibition Service Co Ltd.
SIBT has evolved into a reputable platform for China’s intelligent building and smart home technologies. In 2014, the fair welcomed 181 exhibitors across 11,500 sqm of fairground space. In total, 16,876 visitors from 42 countries and regions were drawn.
Speaking about the newly-formed partnership, Lucia Wong, deputy general manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, said, “The market demand for smart home products and solutions in China is exceptional, which brings numerous opportunities to the industry. And we are honoured to cooperate with CSHIA as they have acquired extensive market knowledge and networks in the industry. Together with our experience and their expertise, we are confident that we will create a specialised and effective platform to accommodate the industry’s growth.”
Steven Zhou, Secretary General of CSHIA, added: “We are very pleased to join forces with Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade – Shanghai Pudong Sub-Council and Shanghai Hongshan Exhibition Service Co Ltd. Being a leading trade fair organizer, Messe Frankfurt has strong know-how in planning, organizing and conceptualizing exhibitions. Through our strategic partnership, we aim to provide an efficient and diversified business channel for smart home professionals.”
Over the years, SIBT has become one of the most comprehensive platforms for intelligent building technology, covering building automation systems and products, building efficiency, generic cabling and other related sectors.
Differentiating itself from SIBT, SSHT will place a strong focus on showcasing diversified standards, different applications and total smart home technology solutions to provide comfort, convenience, efficiency and safety for consumers in the booming smart home market in China.
The first edition of SSHT will be held concurrently with Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology, Shanghai International Lighting Fair, ISH Shanghai & CIHE – the Shanghai International Trade Fair for Heating, Ventilation & Air-Conditioning, as well as Building Solar China.
Together, the events will provide an all-inclusive platform for demonstrating intelligent building, smart home technologies, and energy efficient solutions.
Shanghai Smart Home Technology is a part of Messe Frankfurt’s building and energy shows, headed by the biennial Light + Building event in Frankfurt, Germany, which will take place March 13-18.
SSHT also follows a series of light and building technology events in China, including Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology, Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition, Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology and Shanghai International Lighting Fair.
Additionally, light and building fairs also will be hosted in Argentina, the United Arab Emirates, Russia and India.
