The third edition of Shanghai Smart Home Technology (SSHT) concluded on a bright note. The fair was held concurrently with Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT) from 5 – 7 September 2017 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai. Collectively, the two shows hosted 240 exhibitors from 13 countries and regions which showcased the latest smart home and intelligent building innovations. The fairs also welcomed a record-breaking 27,275 visitors, an 18% increase from last year, from 54 countries and regions.
Regarding this year‘s fair, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, commented: “I would like to express my gratitude to our co-organisers, especially China Smart Home Industry Alliance (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. 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.”

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 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 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 which will take place from 18 – 23 March 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany. Messe Frankfurt also organises a series of light and building technology exhibitions in China including the Shanghai International Lighting Fair, Parking China, Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition and Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology. The company’s light and
building technology fairs also extend to markets in Argentina, India, Russia, the UAE and other countries and regions.
