Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology concluded
Guangzhou Electric Building Technology (GEBT) successfully concluded its four-day run at the China Import and Export Centre on 13 October. Once again, the show was held concurrently with Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE) and together, the fairs attracted over 140,000 visitors, and 2,028 exhibitors from 9 countries and regions. Encompassing various elements of the building sector with a special focus on the latest technologies in the developing intelligent building market, the show provided a much-needed platform to boost industry growth and facilitate business exchange. 
     On the development of the building industry, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd remarked: “China’s market for digitised technologies, extending to the intelligent building sector is growing at a rapid rate. Advancements in IoT technologies, together with the incorporation of information technologies into the everyday lives of consumers in the region, is driving potential for suppliers in the industry.”
     She added: “On top of this consumer-led trend, the industry has significant government backing, with China’s 13th Five Year Plan for the Development of Building Energy Efficiency and Green Buildings opening up further opportunities in smart sectors such as: green buildings, hotel engineering, system integration, protocols, AIoT & IoT, cloud platforms & big data, and more. With such apparent potential available, we are delighted to offer a reputable platform to allow exhibitors and buyers to capitalise on and discover these developing opportunities.”
     “With the challenges faced this year, the industry warmly welcomed the fair as a chance to recover from the economic effects of the pandemic and to resume overdue business interactions. And with the positive synergy effects of the two shows together, fairgoers reported the added benefits and extra potential of having access to both the light and building markets, which are advancing together and becoming ever more integrated,” Ms Wong concluded.
     Following this year’s edition, GEBT remains a professional platform in the industry to explore the newest products and latest innovations as buyers expressed this as a reason to return, year on year. As well as the range of technologies on offer from exhibitors, the dedicated fringe programme provided invaluable insights into emerging trends, consumer behaviour and market changes. Topics included: green buildings and hotel engineering, market changes under the AIoT era, the convergence of light and building sectors, and the smart community among others.
     The next editions of Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition and Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology will take place from 9 – 12 June 2021 and will once again be held at the China Import and Export Fair Complex.
