GEBT 2024 to explore the advancement of smart spaces
China’s building industry is accelerating its transformation towards green and smart development. The rapid advancement of technologies such as 5G communications, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) is leading to a wider expansion of smart spaces. Delving into the potential of smart spaces, the 21st Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology (GEBT) aims to find out how the connection between people and spaces can be enhanced through technology, data, and equipment. It also strives to improve the experience of residents and building users, and create a more energy-efficient, low-carbon, and comfortable environment. GEBT and Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE) will be held concurrently from 9 – 12 June 2024, at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, in areas A and B across 26 halls, covering a historic high of 260,000 sqm of exhibition space in total.
    The Chinese government recently reposted the blueprint for promoting energy efficiency and low carbon emissions in the building sector<1>. Alongside this, the government has identified several initiatives for the industry, such as enhancing the level of energy efficiency and carbon reduction in new buildings, promoting the renovation and upgrade of existing urban buildings, and accelerating the development and promotion of advanced technologies. This announcement will contribute to the promotion of smart spaces that can improve building operational efficiency, and the advancement of related technologies. In line with the country’s green policies, smart spaces designed for both residential and commercial use will continue to help drive sustainable development while meeting the individual needs of residents and users.

Ms Lucia Wong, General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, said: “Smart spaces cover a wide range of applications, including smart homes, audio-visual spaces, smart buildings, hotels, and commercial areas. As one of the key exhibitions in the home automation and intelligent building market, GEBT is committed to establishing an efficient business exchange platform for all participants, and to explore smart, digital, and data-driven products and technologies with industry experts. Together, we aim to build smarter spaces and explore the unlimited opportunities they present.”

    The 21st edition will take place in halls 9.2, 12.2 and 13.2 in area B of the fairground, which will include three product zones. Located at hall 9.2, the “Smart Lighting and AIoT Solutions” zone will display a series of smart lighting control systems. In hall 12.2, the “Home Automation and Audio Visual” zone will cover a range of technologies from home renovation to audio-visual entertainment, showcasing home audio-visual and entertainment systems, home automation systems integration, intelligent hardware products, intelligent shading and electric curtains, home security and building intercoms, and more.
    In addition, the “Home Automation and Green Building” zone in hall 13.2 will focus on the application of smart spaces and smart development, highlighting the digitalisation of hotels, integration of home automation systems, public address and conference systems, building energy efficiency, and energy management.
