The show aims to find out how the connection between people and spaces can be enhanced through technology, data, and equipment. It also strives to improve the experience of residents and building users, and create more energy-efficient, low-carbon, and comfortable environments.

This year’s GEBT will take place in halls 9.2, 12.2 and 13.2 in area B of the fairground, which will include three product zones. Located at hall 9.2, the “Smart Lighting and AIoT Solutions” zone will display a series of smart lighting control systems. In hall 12.2, the “Home Automation and Audio Visual” zone will cover a range of technologies from home renovation to audio-visual entertainment, showcasing home audio-visual and entertainment systems, home automation systems integration, intelligent hardware products, intelligent shading and electric curtains, home security and building intercoms, and more.

In addition, the “Home Automation and Green Building” zone in hall 13.2 will focus on the application of smart spaces and smart development, highlighting the digitalisation of hotels, integration of home automation systems, public address and conference systems, building energy efficiency, and energy management.

Last year, GEBT and GILE were held successfully with a high level of international participation, attracting over 200,000 visitors. Participants gave high praise towards the fairs’ scale, and to how well organised they were.

Mr Enbo Zhang, Guangzhou Branch General Manager, Shenzhen Das International Co Ltd, commented: “GEBT is a long-established exhibition with two decades of history, which attracts many leading local and international exhibitors. For every edition I never leave the fair empty-handed and so I will definitely come back next year.”

Visiting the fairs from Italy for the first time, Mr Andrea Falsarella, Lighting Production Manager of Teleco Automation SRL, was impressed by the number of participants onsite. He said: “I’m travelling to China to see new products for the Chinese lighting and building market as well as to see how these industries have changed over the last few years. It has set a high bar for other trade events that I am planning to attend in the future.”
