29 Apr 2021

The dates for the 2021 edition of Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology (GEBT) have been confirmed, with the fair set to take place from 9 – 12 June. GEBT will be held alongside Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE) once again at the China Import and Export Fair Complex. Together, the two shows featured 2,158 exhibitors in 2020, and attracted over 140,000 visitors.

GEBT is a well-regarded platform for the electrical engineering, intelligent building and smart home markets, and will once more feature well-known companies in the industry. This year, a series of themes will be presented in the fair, including electrical engineering, smart homes, audio visual and home entertainment, intelligent buildings, hotel engineering and more. Hundreds of brands and a series of new products will be on display for a wide range of industry sectors.

Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, commenting on the current situation surrounding the fair, said: “The impressive result for China of achieving a positive GDP growth rate in 2020, as well as further signs of a continued rebound in 2021, shows there is momentum in the domestic market at present. The feedback from participants at the 2020 edition last October also confirmed that the industry is optimistic about the coming year, so we look forward to once again providing a platform that will promote the development of the industry and provide access to greater business opportunities.”

GEBT will continue to provide direction for and boost the development of the electrical engineering and intelligent building industry – an industry that holds much potential in the coming years.
