Visitors to the 2019 edition of Secutech Vietnam will have plenty of opportunities to gather market intelligence, thanks to the introduction of the new ‘Smart Factory Conference’ to the show’s fringe programme. As the region’s leading trade fair for the security, fire safety and smart building sectors, the fair provides a programme of educational events that cover technological trends, government regulations and industry outlook.
Smart factory systems
“Vietnam’s Smart Factory market is on an upward trajectory,” said Ms Regina Tsai, the Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd. “Newly built manufacturing facilities are being integrated with smart factory systems and there is also a need for ageing manufacturing infrastructure to be upgraded with smart solutions. For this reason, there is a growing appetite for information among prospective buyers which we hope the Smart Factory Conference will fulfill. It will be especially useful for investors, owners of industrial parks, consultants, contractors, architects, suppliers and government officials.”
Vietnam’s manufacturing base is gradually moving towards industry 4.0, an automation trend of connected devices, IoT and AI
Vietnam’s manufacturing base is gradually moving towards industry 4.0, an automation trend of connected devices, the internet of things, artificial intelligence and cloud computing. Against this backdrop, speakers at the Smart Factory Conference will demonstrate how factories that use new technologies to automate processes such as production and energy management can become more efficient and cost effective.
Intelligent video solutions
Another discussion point will be intelligent video solutions. With a focus on video analytics, access control and production surveillance, conference speakers will explain how both factory security and production efficiency can be improved.
In addition, there will be an exploration of government regulations and the most up-to-date fire safety systems, including alarms, detectors, fireproof materials and extinguishing systems.
