13 Jun 2022

The Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology (GEBT), originally scheduled for this month, will now take place from 3 – 6 August 2022 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, China. This year’s theme, “The integration of the smart ecosystem”, will highlight key growth areas in the market, with leading brands spotlighting the latest technologies and products. Concurrently held with the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE), both fairs offer further opportunities for creating broader business collaboration.

Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, said: “I would like to thank everyone for their continuous support of GEBT, including all our partners, exhibitors, visitors and supporting media. As the organiser, we are working to ensure all the final preparations for a smooth trade fair experience are in place. We look forward to meeting different stakeholders from smart building, electrical engineering and home automation industry in August to explore the integration of the smart ecosystem.”

This year, GEBT will keep pace with the latest trends of green buildings, smart community, intelligent building and other related hot topics to create business opportunities for all participants. Cutting-edge products and technologies displayed across the show floor include the likes of power supply and distribution, electrical engineering, smart building and home automation. Visitors will be able to find products relating to smart audio-visual and customised home theatre, smart hotel, smart real estate, smart elderly care, smart-health crossover building and more.

Furthermore, leading players from various industries will gather at the show’s concurrent events to share insights around trending topics. Here, forum participants can gain a deeper understanding of the industry’s ecosystem; by exploring technological integration they can nurture more cross-industry collaboration.

To protect the health and safety of all stakeholders at the fair, a number of onsite measures will include: real-name authentication at registration, onsite temperature checks, frequent sterilisation of public areas, and distancing measures for event audiences, amongst others.

Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology is part of Messe Frankfurt’s Light + Building Technology fair portfolio headed by the biennial Light + Building event in Frankfurt, Germany. The next edition will be held from 2 – 6 October 2022.
