Building Solar China – Conference and Exhibition relocates to Shanghai

The organisers of Building Solar China – Conference and Exhibition, Messe Frankfurt and WIP, a world-leading organiser of international solar conferences and exhibitions, have announced a change of date and location for the 2014 show, which will now be held on 4 September 2014 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. Originally scheduled for June in Guangzhou, the event will be relocated to accommodate market trends within the building and solar technology sectors in China.

Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd commented: “Intelligent Green Building and Smart Cities are currently China’s main urban development focuses, and the mission for creating a greener and energy-efficient country remains a top priority. The relocation of Building Solar China is part of our effort to facilitate the current and future development of the country’s building technology. Scheduled to be held concurrently with three other Messe Frankfurt shows, we aim to create an inclusive platform for all sectors of the intelligent and green building industry in Shanghai, one of the most influential cities within East China and the Yangtze River Delta Economic Zone.”

The annual event consists mainly of high-level conferences along with a product display area, providing a comprehensive platform for introducing the latest trends and applications for smart solar building’s implementation. Prominent speakers from domestic and overseas industry associations as well as research institutes will be invited to share their insight and better reflect on the industry’s most pressing issues and breakthroughs.

“Smart Solar Building Solutions” and “Building Integrated Photovoltaic Systems” will be the two major discussion themes at the conference. Highlighted topics include smart solar building solutions, solar building energy infrastructure, market analysis, government policy as well as various case studies. Additionally, some of the latest products on display at the 2014 event will include building-integrated photovoltaic systems (BIPV), specialised solar glass products, solar panels, innovative energy-saving and energy renewal solutions.

The third edition Building Solar China will be held concurrently with Messe Frankfurt’s Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology Fair, ISH Shanghai & CIHE and Shanghai International Lighting Fair. Collectively known as the “Intelligent Green Building – IGB” exhibition platform, themes on building automation covered across the associated shows include building energy efficiency, intelligent cities, smart homes, development of solar thermal technology as well as various energy-efficient lighting solutions.

The four events are expected to take place across more than 40,000 sqm of exhibition space and attract visitors from a wide range of disciplines including, system integrators, architects, contractors, engineering designers, contractors, property owners developers and much more.
