    11 August 2016

    (10 August 2016, Shanghai) Joining forces with one of China’s leading smart home industry organisations, the China Smart Home Industry Alliance (CSHIA), Shanghai Smart Home Technology (SSHT) will return to the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from 31 August – 2 September 2016. This year’s edition will once again run concurrently with Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT).

    Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, outlined the significance of the exhibition. “Positioned as China‘s premier platform for smart home technology, the fair focuses on technical integration and cross-sector cooperation for the smart home industry. SSHT also aims to encourage industry players to develop innovative and practical smart home solutions to serve growing demand for smart living products. In addition, traditional companies specialising in home appliances, lighting, security, sun shading and electrical engineering are incorporating smart home strategies into their core businesses. The show will help to further promote integration of these traditional firms with innovative Internet and smart home companies to generate a comprehensive display of solutions covering the entire smart home ecosystem,” explained Ms Wong.

    In regards to the development trends of China’s smart home industry, Mr Steven Zhou, Secretary General of CSHIA, commented: “Key trends for the smart home industry in 2016 include integration and business restructuring. The integration aspect involves realisation of the much-discussed ‘Internet of Everything (IoE)’ era where Internet companies, smart home appliance manufacturers, cloud platform enterprises and system integrators will work together as one. Such cooperation is not merely defined as technological integration but rather as complete integration and connection of technology, product and market elements in the smart home ecosystem. As for business restructuring, it is accelerated by China‘s national policies that emphasise concepts such as ‘Internet Plus’ and ‘Industry 4.0’. I forecast that there will be a greater number of defined specialisations emerging from the smart home industry, while more small and medium-sized companies pop up. As such, more business opportunities will be created in the industry over the next 10 years.”
