Shanghai Smart Home Technology 2017 concludes with record-breaking visitor attendance
Collectively, the two shows welcomed 27,272 visitors and hosted 240 exhibitors from 13 countries and regions that showcased the latest smart home and intelligent building innovations.
SSHT is organised by Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt, the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade – Shanghai Pudong Sub-Council, Shanghai Hongshan Exhibition Service and the China Smart Home Industry Alliance (CSHIA).
“I would like to express my gratitude to our co-organisers, especially CSHIA as well as all of our industry peers for their support. This year, SSHT elaborated on current industry movements through four concepts — innovation, core technology, trends and connectivity. The development of Internet of Things (IoT), big data and cloud platform has changed our everyday habits and these ongoing developments are driving the smart home industry to go further,” says Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) deputy general manager Lucia Wong.
The next edition of the fair will be held from 3 – 5 September 2018 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre in China. SIBT will once again be held concurrently with SSHT to showcase intelligent building technologies and solutions for building energy saving, the smart community and smart hotels.
The fair is committed to presenting the concept of building IoT and driving the industry forward. This will eventually mean the concept of intelligent building evolving from an individual building to a cluster of buildings and moving further towards intelligent technologies and digitisation. Many hope that the idea of cognitive buildings will eventually be realised.
“The fair successfully positions itself as a one-stop showcase platform covering a full spectrum of exhibits. In order to foster information exchange and collaboration, we organised a series of seminars and forums. To make smart living a reality we will require new ideas, hardware and above all a close-knit industry. We are confident to make SSHT an influential event to offer a comprehensive display for industry professionals,” says Lucia.
