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 5 - 7 September 2017. With only six months to go, already 80% of the exhibition space for the upcoming show has been booked, representing a 50% increase over the same time last year. This year's edition will once again run concurrently with Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT). The two fairs will showcase the latest technologies and products related to smart homes and intelligent buildings. They are expected to welcome more than 250 companies and 28,000 visitors for trade in a record-breaking exhibition space of 18,000 sqm, a 12.5% increase over the previous edition.


Commenting on the industry's positive feedback, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, said: "I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the industry for their support to SSHT. The show is positioned as a comprehensive technology platform that stresses three core values with the first being 'technology integration'. SSHT showcases the integration of internet application, communication and automation control technologies through an array of product exhibitions and event programmes. Second is 'cross-sector collaboration'. SSHT aims to facilitate industry convergence and help traditional businesses to discover fruitful opportunities in the smart home sector. The last core value is 'market demand'.
