And we will continue to expand our portfolio of events in Asia under the Light+Building umbrella. We are very pleased that Shanghai Hongshan Exhibition Service Co Ltd has agreed to join forces with us for Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology.â€
Mr Richard Li, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt in China, added, â€œShanghai Hongshan Exhibition Service Co Ltd has already established an excellent track record by holding intelligent building related trade fairs in Shanghai since 2007. Their local experience, combined with Messe Frankfurtâ€™s own brand of building technology fairs, will offer industry players strong synergy opportunities. The Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology fair will surely provide a one-stop platform for entry into East Chinaâ€™s intelligent building market.â€
Mr. Zhang Xiaodong, General Manager from Shanghai Hongshan Exhibition Service Co Ltd also added: â€œWith Messe Frankfurtâ€™s successful record for organising the Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology fair, and their professionalism in the exhibition industry, we believe that the Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology fair will offer a comprehensive experience for all industry professionals attending the event.â€
Eastern region takes the lead in Chinaâ€™s growing intelligent building market
According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the countryâ€™s construction market exceeded USD1.58 billion in 2011 for the first time, and total output was valued at USD18.6 billion, with an increase of 22.6 percent over the previous year. Approximately 84 million square-metres of housing was constructed in 2011 â€“ an increase of 19.5 percent from the previous year. The rapid development of the construction industry greatly benefits the intelligent building market. Since last year, China's intelligent building market has grown by 20 percent. It is expected that in 2012, the market will be worth USD13.65 billion and will reach USD20.61 billion in 2015. Such massive growth puts China in place to become the largest market for intelligent building technology by 2020 â€“ accounting for nearly one-third of the global share.
Currently there are approximately 50 cities in China that have stated targets to become intelligent cities. Twenty-six cities have already submitted plans for an intelligent city in their government reports. The scale of related markets to intelligent building technology is over USD24 billion â€“ with a market value estimated to break into the trillions within the next ten years.
The eastern region is one of the most developed economic areas in mainland China. The construction of intelligent buildings started early in the region, and the market scale has grown considerably. In the Shanghai, Jiangsu and Zhejiang areas for example, are home to thousands of intelligent buildings and smart communities. A large number of venues and high-speed projects have also been developed across these areas. The 2010 Shanghai World Expo, focusing on the theme â€œbetter city, better lifeâ€, challenged urban communities across China to build intelligent infrastructures over the next 10 to 15 years. The government believes this ambitious goal will lead to a domestic market volume of up to USD238 billion for the industry.
Mr. Richard Li said: â€œThe development of smart homes and the marketâ€™s demands in the Shanghai area are ahead of other national regions. The marketâ€™s calls for related technologies and solutions are huge. â€˜Shanghai Intelligent Building Technologyâ€™ will provide a professional platform for intelligent building solution providers who are willing to expand into the East China market and create more business opportunities for their firms.â€
