Joining hands with China Smart Home Industry Alliance (CSHIA), the third edition of Shanghai Smart Home Technology (SSHT) is set to open its doors from 5 – 7 September 2017 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai. The fair will once again run concurrently with Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology – SIBT. The two fairs are expected to host 240 exhibitors spanning over two halls of the exhibition centre. As a renowned smart home trading platform in China, SSHT is committed to showcasing technologies covering smart home electronic appliances, the smart community, smart hotels, smart hardware, chips, Internet of Things (IoT), NarrowBand Internet of Things (NB-IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), robots, audio-visual (AV) integration and home entertainment. The fair aims to not only foster cross-sector collaboration but also encourage technological advancement.

Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, shared: “I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the industry for its support over the years. This year, SSHT will demonstrate the convergence of smart home technologies and Building Internet of Things (BIoT) through four concepts — innovation, core technology, trends and connectivity. Innovative technologies give rise to new products. Core technologies resolve technological fragmentation among different systems. Trends lead the industry to develop and grow. Connectivity makes collaboration possible. A series of informative forums and a ‘New Technology and Product Launch’ presentation will help visitors to keep abreast of the latest developments and provide networking and business opportunities. We are pleased that SSHT has grown into an influential industry event.”

Four key concepts will outline future market direction

Innovation

Innovation is the prerequisite for product development. Ingenious companies and their product developers are continually looking for platforms to exhibit new ideas and inventions. SSHT gathers 240 well-known domestic and overseas brands to present impressive products and technologies. Confirmed exhibitors include ABB, ANJUBAO, Atte, AVE-Leelen, backaudio, Baiwei, Cinemaster, Crodigy, Dnake, Dorlink, Eastsoft, Fantem, Haier, HDL, HEKR, Hi-Champ, HUTLON, konke, Moorgen, Ohosure, RAYING, Rici, SONOS, Tijio, UIOT, Wensi and Wise.

The concept of innovation is also embedded into the concurrent events programme. The ‘New Technology and Product Launch’ presentation adopts the theme of “Smart Home Inspires New Ways of Living”. Manufacturers will unveil forward-thinking products and technologies including smart speakers, smart voicebox, gateway and door lock.

Core technology

SSHT serves as an all-inclusive platform gathering core technology such as chips, cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, the internet and IoT. Being present at the show is vital for business expansion and taking the lead in the market. Industry experts will be able to learn about these essential items in a series of events.

HomeGrid Forum in the concurrent events programme is being organised in China for the first time. HomeGrid Forum is dedicated to promoting G.hn technology, a globally recognised gigabit home networking technology. The forum will demonstrate how to make use of existing cables at home to provide a seamless high-speed network. Speakers from standards organisations, semi-conductor companies and chips manufacturers such as China Telecom, Huawei, Marvell, Maxlinear and Xingtera will be invited. In addition, Arm Mbed will display software, hardware and cloud platforms with robust connectivity and security features by presenting ‘ARM Mbed: Internet of Possible‘.

Trends

The fast-changing state of the market creates a strong appetite among industry professionals to seek out the latest trends. Domestic and overseas speakers will be invited to a range of seminars and events to discuss a number of thought-provoking topics:

  • NB-IoT and Smart Home
  • The Impact of Internet of Things (IoT) on Intelligent Buildings and Multi-Dwelling Unit Buildings
  • China Smart Home Industry Alliance (CSHIA) Eastern China Summit — The Information Security of Smart Homes
  • Tencent Qrobot (Second Generation) Intelligent Robot Strategic Launch and Industry Application
  • New Thinking on Intelligent Hotels – Increase in service value when hotels become intelligent

 Connectivity

The concept of connectivity is an indispensable factor within the smart home industry as the whole system is constituted of different technologies. International standards organisations such as KNX Association and LonMark International and wireless communication companies including Zigbee Alliance, EnOcean Alliance and Wi-Fi Alliance will be present at SSHT.

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).

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 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.
