• GEBT 2022 to open next week, with smart technology forums to connect diverse industries

    1 August 2022

    Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology 2022 will run from 3 – 6 August, welcoming back leading brands from the smart building, audio-visual and electrical engineering industries. Held concurrently with Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE), the two fairs are expected to welcome 1,288 exhibitors across 110,000 sqm of exhibition space. Running with the theme “The integration of the smart technology ecosystem”, the Smart Technology Ecosystem Conference will tie together a series of forums set to take place during the course of the show.

    On the opening of the show, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Co Ltd commented: “We look forward to welcoming the industry back to GEBT as we explore the integration of the smart technology ecosystem. Cities and communities of the future will become increasingly digitalised and interconnected through the use of smart technologies. These bring with them wide-ranging applications from public infrastructure, home comfort and government services to recreation, leisure, culture and much more.”

    She continued: “In particular, the increasing adoption of 5G and AIoT is leading to increased standards of living wherever these technologies are being implemented, and many firms are taking note of that. The Smart Technology Ecosystem Conference on Wednesday will therefore serve as a key platform for encouraging discussion and sharing ideas and expertise between different industries, to make this future a reality. There will also be forums covering a range of diverse topics within smart buildings, audio-visual technologies, smart living and more, which we’re very excited to see unfold.”
