Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology concludes successfully, showcasing the latest advancements in IoT technologies

13 agosto 2021

After a successful four-day run at the China Import and Export
Centre, Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology (GEBT)
concluded on 6 August. Held concurrently once again with
Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE) the fairs
attracted 2,036 exhibitors and 97,688 visitors. The synergy between
the two shows as well as the advancement in IoT and AIoT
technologies and their adoption in the Chinese market created
more opportunities for exhibitors and buyers in this year’s edition.

Commenting on the progression in the industry, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy
General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) said: “Advancements in IoT
and AIoT technologies were at the forefront of this year’s show. The
ever-increasing adoption of these technologies into the everyday lives of
consumers, particularly in China, brings additional opportunities for
suppliers in the intelligent building and home space, and the industry
continues to grow at a rapid pace. In addition, smart sectors such as
green buildings, hotel engineering, smart lighting, audio visual
integration, system integration, protocols, smart real estate and smart
health, all of which are important aspects of GEBT, continue to play a
role in shaping the future of the industry.”

Ms Wong continued: “Once again GEBT and GILE were highly
appreciated by the industry as an important platform for professionals to
engage, with the synergy between the two fairs allowing attendees to
access both industries, which are becoming increasingly interconnected.
While the recent emergence of Covid-19 cases impacted the visitor
attendance, we remain confident that the industry is on the right track for
a full recovery in the near future.”

This year’s edition demonstrated again that GEBT continues to be the
premier platform in China for industry professionals to stay ahead of the
trends, and discover the newest and most innovative products on the
market. The main focuses of this year’s edition included electrical
engineering, smart real estate, hotel engineering, system integration,
smart lighting, audio-visual integration, intelligent building, protocols,
AIoT, architectural space, smart health and home automation.

Exhibitors’ comments
“This year we have about 30 KNX Association members participating at
the fair. They all brought new products, such as smart panels with
improved design and functions, and new products that integrate power
supplies. In particular, German company Steinel’s booth has attracted a
large number of visitors as they are well-recognised by Chinese
customers due to their product quality and wide applications in different
areas. Our association will continue to facilitate industry development by
promoting the KNX standard, and further extending KNX technology
towards IoT. And our members will continue to support GEBT in the
Ms Pu Shen, Executive Secretary, Secretariat of KNX China, China

“The exhibition has gone very well for us this year. We had booths at
both GEBT and GILE and they attracted a lot of visitors with enquiries
about our technology, product solutions, supply chain and factories.
Tuya’s aim is to reduce the cost of being smart, which also meets the
expectations of many of our clients. We believe the Powered by Tuya
ecosystem and smart scenario abilities will further meet the demand of
the fast-growing market.”
Mr Sun Liwei, Lighting Product Manager, Tuya Smart, China

Visitors’ comments
“This is our first time visiting GEBT. It is a leading trade fair in the
industry, so we can explore new products and learn more about the
latest market trends here. We have found some innovative products
already in the intelligent building space, especially to do with cultural
tourism lighting, and have placed some orders. Being held concurrently
with GILE is definitely beneficial for us to seek greater business
opportunities. All in all we give a high appraisal of the fair, and will be
back next year!”
Mr Liu Jing Wei, General Manager, AV-CHINA, China

“I have been to GEBT for several years, because every time I visit there
are A/V exhibitors and products that match my needs. With the
increasing demand for smart products in the market over the past two
years, I also saw a lot of these at the fair this time. I have been in touch
with some manufacturers in this field here already, and will follow up with
them afterwards. As the pandemic has slowed down the communication
between all parties, GEBT has provided a much-needed platform for us.
The fair is very influential among the industry.”
Ms Shunzhen Chen, Sales Manager, Jun Feng Audio Visual, China

Speakers’ comments
“GEBT has become a must-go event for industry players. The fair serves
as an important occasion for them to observe new industry trends and
developments. Through this seminar and the fair, it’s important that the
audience are exposed to different ideas and new inspirations. Due to the
pandemic, people are spending much more time working and
entertaining at home so the demand for smart home solutions
Ms Wilma Su, Chair, Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) Member Group China, China

products. The application of these new things we find here has given us
a lot of thinking and inspiration for our designs, which is very helpful for
our work.”
Mr JianChun Chen, Design Director, DOL, China

Audiences’ comments
“I joined this summit to listen to each speaker’s unique insight, which
covered the field of smart home as well as the broader field of IoT and
smart building. All speakers’ topics were related to smart home so the
analysis coverage was wider and I could learn more about other fields.
GEBT is a very well-known trade fair that gathers businesses from all
over China with their unique products, so the fair reflects the progress of
the industry, while the exhibitor booths and fringe programme events like
this summit are mutually reinforcing.”
Mr Qiang Lu, Founder of Smart Home Evaluation Platform and
Director of Smart Home Alliance, Shenzhen Building Electrical and
Intelligent Association, China

“The speakers at the Zigbee event were all from leading companies in
the field, and what they shared was enlightening as they were the actual
challenges facing the industry. A range of leading brands are gathered at
GEBT to showcase their latest products and technologies, so the fair
provides a necessary boost to our business under the pandemic. It
definitely facilities industry development as it strengthens the
cooperation amongst industry players.”
