Shanghai Smart Home Technology 2016 achieved record visitor attendance
Benefiting from the smart home boom, the second edition of Shanghai Smart Home Technology (SSHT) concluded with great success. The fair was held concurrently with Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT) from 31 August – 2 September 2016 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai. Collectively, the fairs hosted 240 exhibitors from 14 countries and regions who showcased the latest smart home innovations and total solutions. The fairs had 23,210 professional visitors, a 13% increase over last year, from 49 countries and regions.
Commenting on the success of the fair, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, said: “I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the smart home industry for their continuous support. The 2016 show emphasised three core themes: cross-sector collaboration, market demand and innovation. The integration of resources to better join both traditional and technology-oriented businesses is important for future industry development. This year's show welcomed more companies to promote the convergence of traditional building industry, the Internet and smart home industry. Human-centric applications have also become mainstream in the market. SSHT’s diversified visitors, ranging from designers and engineers to system integrators and end-users, created a platform for exhibitors to generate business and better understand market demand. During the fair, we organised an array of product launches and seminars to encourage industry players to innovate and develop practical smart living products.”
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 5 – 7 September 2017 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
