Not only does Thailand benefit from having Southeast Asia’s second largest economy, but it is also at the heart of an evolution in smart cities and ‘green’ buildings. Thanks to the government’s recent Infrastructure Development Plan (2015 – 2020), an even stronger emphasis has been placed on further developing this sector in Thailand.
These factors have resulted in many international government authorities, builders, project owners, and real estate developers become more and more appealed by the country’s work in smart security solutions – particularly for the likes of high-rise buildings, hotels, homes, factories, and retail.
Visitors and exhibitors
This is reflected in the 2017 edition of Secutech Thailand, where more than 150 international companies have gathered in 7,000 sqm of space at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre, which is a huge 133% increase in size compared to the previous edition. Taking place from 16 – 18 November, an estimated 15,000 trade visitors from 31 countries and regions are expected to attend the fair, as well as seven trade delegations from the ASEAN region.
Serving as a hub for the sector’s most innovative developments for a smart and safe city, Secutech Thailand will cover the most vital aspects of the region’s security industry. This includes intelligent video, fire and safety, access control, IoT platforms, high speed and wireless transmission, and efficient storage. For this year’s edition, six individual zones have been established to highlight where attendees can find the sector-specific solutions they are looking for, and each associated with the smart security market. These are: Smart City, Smart Home, Smart Retail, Z-Wave Pavilion, UL Pavilion and Intelligent Video Gallery.
Three special areas will
New show element
Keeping in line with the industry’s shift towards implementing more smart safety solutions, the 2017 fair features a Smart + Safe City Demo Area. This section will open up opportunities for the likes of security solution providers, global tech ecosystem providers, IT giants and system integrators to meet up and bring their latest discoveries to the fair’s visitors in a dedicated area.
What’s more, continuing the success of SMAhome at Secutech Taipei, this area will also take part in the Thailand show for the first time. The showcase will feature various solutions for smart home security, ambient living, energy saving and automation for homes. Three special areas will be formed to highlight the essential elements in the smart home sector including:
Smart Home Solution Centre
Selected representative manufacturers will present the complete supply chain of the smart home sector in this area, including home security, comfort living and energy control. Also included will be various live product demos.
SMAhome Thailand and the Z-Wave Alliance have cooperated to hold the first ever Z-Wave Pavilion in Southeast Asia, aiming to introduce the latest smart home solutions from the international leading Z-Wave makers to the Thai market.
Smart Lock Solution Display
Here, international first-tier lock manufacturers will exhibit smart lock solutions. The display provides a complete procurement reference for local travel agencies and builders in Thailand, but also a platform for the manufacturers to connect with the Thai market.
"The comprehensive coverage at Secutech Thailand once again reflects the region’s current trends"
Ms Regina Tsai, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media, says Secutech Thailand’s topical themes this year have attracted an international presence to the region’s booming smart security market. “The comprehensive coverage at Secutech Thailand once again reflects the region’s current trends, thanks to the joint efforts with our partner Worldex G.E.C., as well as the local authorities and our industry counterparts. These new elements of the show serve as a bridge between the international security suppliers, local government authorities and construction companies. Not only that, but they also provide a gateway to businesses in the promising ASEAN market at the same time.”
