7 Jun 2018

Running into its 11th edition, this year’s Guangzhou Public Security Technology (GPST) show will officially open its doors from 9 – 12 June at the China Import and Export Fair Complex. Taking place alongside Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology, the two fairs will welcome over 220 leading manufacturers and solution providers across 15,000 sqm of floor space over the coming four days.

Amidst growing optimism surrounding the prospects for China’s booming smart city sector[1], the fair provides an ideal platform for security sector stakeholders to deepen their business relationships and enhance their integration across vertical markets. Over 10,000 visitors are expected to descend on the fair, including the most relevant trade, industry, and local government authority representatives.

Commenting on the opportunities that the show will deliver for its attendees, Mr Hubert Duh, Chairman, Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, said: “The security industry is currently enjoying abundant business opportunities, as new technologies in fields such as video surveillance and biometric recognition are adopted and integrated across different sectors. GPST is at the forefront of showcasing these opportunities. Smart city, smart transportation, public safety and smart community will be among the vertical markets that fairgoers will have the chance to explore at this year’s show.”

Co-organised for the first time this year by Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt, the fair has attracted many leading brands from various security sectors. Highlighted technologies and vertical markets include:

The Exemplary Case Study Zone is also one of the most highly anticipated aspects of the 2018 show. Artificial intelligence and IoT technology will feature heavily at the zone, providing fairgoers with key product analysis and industry insights. Applications of the technology stretch into public safety, retail, medical care, building management, transportation and factory.  

Meanwhile, the Live Talk with Industry Experts Zone will give visitors the chance to listen to two-way dialogue between high level representatives of security industry giants. This area will feature live-streamed talks that delve into the future development of security products. Data mining, deep learning and machine vision (an automated image analysis and inspection technology) will be examined. An exploration of user requirements and pain points will also be on the agenda.

These discussions will not only be open to visitors at the show, but they will also be made available through a live internet broadcast. Speakers will include representatives of industry leading companies such as Dahua Technology, PCI-Suntek Technology and Netposa Technologies.

As the adoption of artificial intelligence becomes more prevalent across many industries, the security sector is also examining how AI can be more broadly implemented. To analyse how AI can be proactively adopted to boost development, the Asia Intelligent Security Technology (AiST) forum will take place from 9 to 11 June. The forum will involve seminars delivered by experts representing government departments and industry leading companies.
