The 2019 edition of Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology (GEBT) returns from 9 – 12 June at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou. Offering a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art developments in electrical engineering, intelligent buildings, and smart homes, the fair’s diverse event programme will shed light on the latest discussions in the industry. Held concurrently with Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE), the two fairs are expected to welcome over 165,000 industry professionals.
Emerging trends in technology are being recognised by the Chinese government as recent development plans encourage the improvement and interconnectivity of infrastructures, alongside the practical implementation of big data, IoT, and AI. Currently, China’s RMB 400-billion integrated intelligent building market is supported by its nation-wide network of over 5,000 industry-related businesses. The intelligent building sector’s growth is being further spurred by new policies on technology and construction, not to mention the ongoing endeavours of the Belt and Road Initiative and the Greater Bay Area plan.
Sharing her expectations ahead of the show, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Co Ltd, said: “As technology, including big data, artificial intelligence, cloud computing and IoT are becoming more widely used in daily life, the digitalisation of the building industry is more effective than ever before. This has led to continuous advancements in the intelligent building and smart home sector. In sync with market trends, the 16th edition of Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology will join hands with the industry to discuss influential topics such as AI, IoT, real estate, smart cities, intelligent hotels, system integration, and for the first time, healthy buildings. Leading the industry in search of new trends, it is the fair’s goal to capture emerging opportunities in the market with pioneering innovations.”
