SIBT and SSHT to focus on five trending sectors
The 2020 editions of Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT) and Shanghai Smart Home Technology (SSHT) are set to return from 2 – 4 September in halls W3 – W5 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC). The two fairs will once again be held concurrently with the Shanghai Smart Office Technology (SSOT) zone and Parking China. Together, they are expected to attract 25,000 industry visitors and over 250 exhibitors, covering an exhibition space of 25,000 sq m. This year, the fairs will focus on five in-demand sectors, including audio-visual, complete smart home ecosystems, smart sunshade, smart office and smart parking technology.
     Commenting on the current status of the industry, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd said: “This is a challenging year for all of us in the industry, but as the pandemic eases, I believe there will be a strong and growing consumer demand for home, building, office, parking, engineering and smart technologies. During these trying times, smart technology can support remote office practices while offering improved and more connected indoor and outdoor environments.”
   “Moreover, it is important to recognise some positive aspects in the industry such as the continuous development of AI and IoT, increasing consumer demand and the application of 5G technology. The Chinese government has also implemented policies to promote the use of technology on a national scale, such as the ‘new infrastructure’ scheme. This year, the concurrent fairs will highlight key areas covering home, building and city aspects, allowing the industry to explore the entire smart technology ecosystem in one place,” she added.
     This year, SSHT and SIBT, together with the concurrent fairs, will present new technologies and products in the smart home, intelligent building, smart parking and smart office sectors. By showcasing innovative ideas, the fairs build a bridge of communication between industry stakeholders and offer a head start in identifying future trends.
     Coined to describe digital, integrated and innovative infrastructures, China’s ‘new infrastructure’ concept demonstrates the region’s objective to stimulate the economy through technology. The 2020 edition of Parking China will examine the parking industry’s role in the implementation of this scheme. Jointly organised with China Urban Parking Industry Association, the ‘China Parking Industry Convergence Development Forum’ will be held concurrently.
