Parking China 2020 to present opportunities driven by China’s new infrastructure investment

6 Jul 2020

With objectives to revive the economy and promote sustainable growth, China has launched a new infrastructure campaign, planning to invest heavily in key technologies ranging from smart transportation and 5G networks to artificial intelligence (AI). Expected to drive the development of the country’s technology sector, this new initiative will provide the parking industry with myriad opportunities for growth and advancement. From 2 – 4 September, Parking China will enable industry professionals to discover where these opportunities lie today and in the future, as well as showcase their latest innovations.

Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, commented on why the upcoming trade fair is as vital as ever: “The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on every business and industry, but as the pandemic is easing up in many countries, companies are looking for an opportunity to resume business and re-establish networks. Parking China sets out to support the industry’s recovery by offering an ideal space for suppliers and buyers to trade and connect.”

“With China pledging new efforts to promote the development of the digital economy, the smart technology sector is set to thrive. Parking China, together with the concurrent Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology, Shanghai Smart Home Technology and Shanghai Smart Office Technology will cover key areas of the smart home, building and city sectors, providing a one-stop platform for industry professionals to explore the opportunities within the smart technology ecosystem.”

New infrastructure projects to deliver plentiful opportunities
To help spur economic recovery and boost sustainable growth, China plans to speed up the development of its innovative technology sector with new investments in a series of infrastructure projects including 5G networks, data centres, artificial intelligence and new energy vehicle charging stations, all of which are closely related to smart parking.

These new infrastructure projects are expected to encourage both developers and proprietors to look for novel smart parking solutions to help upgrade their parking facilities and reduce labour costs, and thus offer abundant opportunities for the smart parking sector. Parking China is uniquely positioned to assist companies in capturing opportunities arising from the new infrastructure campaign, given the trade fair’s strong reputation and presence in China.
