“We are always excited in the lead up to a fair, but following last year’s deferment of the physical edition, we are eager for the curtains to come up once again,” says Ms Regina Tsai, General Manager, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd – Taiwan Branch Office. “While the pandemic has slowed face-to-face exchanges, the rate of technological change has not stood still. There will be a lot of exciting new developments for buyers to sample in April.”
A total of 250 exhibitors have confirmed their participation at the physical fair spanning 15,120 sqm of exhibition space. With advancements in artificial intelligence, 5G and the IoT coming thick and fast, exhibitors are preparing to present solutions for five of the most promising markets for these technologies, including safe city, smart building, smart transportation, smart factory and smart healthcare.
“The focus is on the security and automation trends that are having the most impact,” explains Ms Tsai. “This includes the trends that have accelerated amid the pandemic such as thermal imaging cameras and low touch access control.”
