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 building innovations. This year, a wide range of technological breakthroughs in the intelligent building sector, including AI & IoT applications, smart lighting, smart parking and smart security will take centre stage, offering participants a comprehensive overview of the industry.
Regarding the future development of the intelligent building industry, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, commented: “With the remarkable progress in big data and cloud computing technologies in recent years, cognitive buildings that integrate user-oriented lighting, parking, HVAC and energy-saving functions have become a viable option in the China market. To cope with this rising demand, special attention is being paid to building IoT applications at the fair and dedicated seminars have been arranged to examine the numerous business possibilities.”
The integrated application of IoT, communication technologies and cloud computing has significant implications when it comes to the intelligent building industry and smart city development. The next generation of intelligent buildings will be able to adapt and learn based on experiences with their inhabitants. Thanks to policies in China that have promoted IoT technologies, the future outlook of the intelligent building industry is being redefined. According to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China, it is estimated that the annual growth rate of the IoT market in China will increase more than 30% from 2015 to 2020 and reach a value of RMB 1.9 trillion.
To better integrate resources and enhance the synergy effect of Messe Frankfurt’s series of IoT and intelligent building technologies fairs, SIBT 2018 will be held jointly with Parking China for the first time. Parking China is a specialised fair for public parking solutions and the collaboration between the fairs will demonstrate a cross-sector building ecosystem helping fairgoers to meet new partners and unlock business opportunities. Further information about Parking China will be released in the run up to the fair.

SIBT 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.
SIBT and SSHT 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.
