SIBT and SSHT 2022 to create synergies between smart industries: building, home, office and parking

15 Jul 2022

Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT) and Shanghai Smart Home Technology (SSHT), alongside Parking China (PKC) and the Shanghai Smart Office Technology (SSOT) zone will take place in halls W3 to W5 of the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from 31 August – 2 September 2022. The four concurrent events will cover an area of 23,600 sqm and are expected to welcome over 250 exhibitors. This year, the show will display new technologies, smart solutions and products from leading brands in areas including smart home, smart parking, smart office and smart audio-visual.

The 14th Five-Year Plan (2021 – 2025) has encouraged the further advancement of smart industries in China. With the rise of smart cities, people’s lives have become increasingly digitalised. According to the “Smart Plus Social Development Index Report” released by the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), there were approximately 296,000 “smart communities” in China, using smart technologies to benefit their residents and businesses. In December 2020, the smart community market was valued at over RMB 80 billion (USD 11.9 billion). With the rapid growth of the smart community market, it is estimated that this will expand to RMB 643 billion (USD 96 billion) by 2023.

Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd commented: “With the gradual improvement of urban infrastructure, people have higher expectations on their quality of life. Alongside this trend, the building, home technology and smart community sectors are also transforming and upgrading. SIBT and SSHT will therefore help industry players to seize the business opportunities brought by the development of China’s smart technology markets. Through integration of smart building, smart home, smart audio-visual, smart office and more, the fairs aim to promote using smart technologies in day-to-day activities.”

Enhancing smart buildings to establish smart communities
AIoT is now widely used in daily life and is helping to grow China's smart community market as well as promote urban transformation. Smart community technologies are constantly being upgraded, which in turn is improving living standards. This includes basic security system technologies such as security supervision, card and password access control and vehicle access control. More advanced technologies such as facial recognition access control, fire and smoke detection and other digitalised community management tools are also in this category.

SIBT has partnered with The Intelligent Branch of China Exploration & Design Association (CEEDI), China Smart Home Industry Alliance (CSHIA), International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), KNX Association, EnOcean Alliance, Wi-Fi Alliance, DALI Alliance, Meadin, First Design, Commercial Research Office Council and Zhixing Xiaozheng, to provide high quality events for all participants. Highlights include the China Intelligent Building High Quality Development Summit 2022, Application of Wi-Fi and Smart Products in Daily Life, Meadin Intelligent AIoT Hotel Summit 2022, DALI Alliance China Innovation Application Technology Forum 2022, New Real Estate Technology 50 Forum – Innovative Technology of Intelligent Real Estate Session, KNX Home and Building Control System Seminar 2022 and more.

Increasing awareness of smart home helps to promote the digitalisation of households
Smart home now embraces scenario-based technologies such as AIoT and 5G that connect household appliances together instead of operating individually. These products are able to detect various situations in the household such as temperature changes or physical movements, and provide appropriate functions in response. This year, SSHT will gather exhibitors from the communication protocol, automatic control and audio-visual sectors to display smart home-related products and technologies.

SSHT will host various forums focusing on the latest industry trends. These include the CSHIA East China Summit –Smart Home Integration Innovation Forum 2022 and China (Shanghai) Smart Home Integrator Conference 2022. Interactions amongst experts from a variety of fields aim to enhance cross-industry cooperation to support the development of the smart home ecosystem. 

Furthermore, the fair will display an array of home audio-visual products integrated with AI and IoT technologies to bring an innovative entertainment experience to visitors. The SSHT Home Audio-Visual Entertainment Innovative Integration Forum will return this year, providing a platform for industry players to explore the development of smart audio-visual technologies.
