The 2018 edition of Shanghai Smart Home Technology (SSHT) will be held concurrently with Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT) to present the latest smart home and intelligent building innovations. Both the artificial intelligence and smart security sectors will receive greater attention at the fairs this year as their influence across a range of industries continues to strengthen. The two fairs also remain an ideal hub for fairgoers to explore the latest industry trends in Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, cloud platforms and big data.
Regarding the future development of the smart home industry, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, commented: “I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the industry for their support of SSHT. While the concept of the smart home was once a futuristic dream it is now a reality. The AI market in China has vigorously expanded thanks to a number of strategic policies and a strong economic performance in the country. A forum dedicated to AI will highlight the first day of the fair and we believe it will provide valuable market insights and future business opportunities.”

SSHT is organised by Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade – Shanghai Pudong Sub-Council, Shanghai Hongshan Exhibition Service Co Ltd and the China Smart Home Industry Alliance (CSHIA). The fair will be held from 3 – 5 September 2018 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre in China.
SIBT will 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 Internet of Things 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.
SSHT and SIBT are both headed by the biennial Light + Building event in Frankfurt, Germany. Messe Frankfurt also organises a series of light and building technology exhibitions in China including Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology, Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition, Shanghai International Lighting Fair and Parking China. The company's light and building technology fairs also extend to markets in Argentina, India, Thailand, Russia, the UAE and other countries and regions.
