2019·The 9th China Household Electrical Appliance Development Summit







1. Background


Asia is currently the largest and most dynamic home-appliance market in the world, and its international position will be further promoted. China is also thriving as the largest single market. In recent years, with the global reach and strategic restructuring of domestic appliance enterprises such as Haier, Midea, Hisense, and TCL, Chinese enterprises are actively integrating into the mainstream of world home appliance consumption.


Meanwhile, China adheres to the state policy of reform and opening-up, and the market possesses broad inclusiveness and huge growth potential. International brands with SONY as a representative, not only win the recognition of Chinese consumers with their accumulated reputation and unique advantages, but also promote the development of our appliance market. The market is attracting the high attention of the global home appliance industry with its great tolerance, diversity, and richness.


Science and technology reconstruction, along with the thriving of IoT, big data, and AI, speeds up the integration of intelligent appliances and intelligent manufacturing, marking the arriving of the smart family era. Huawei, Tencent, Baidu, JD, Lenovo, Alibaba, Millet, and other global IT and Internet giants are involved in the smart-home building. Intellectualization creates more growth space for Chinese household appliances and perhaps, in the future, it will breed the vision and blueprint for a better way of life.


As the host of AWE, China Household Electrical Appliances Association (CHEAA) devotes itself to building the world’s top exhibitions, but what’s worth mentioning is that it also holds China Household Electrical Appliance Development Summit during the exhibition in order to broaden the international vision of the domestic appliance industry and promote exchanges between enterprises. The top forum has been successfully held for eight sessions before, and since its focuses are about industry development and frontier topics, thousands of audiences participant in the forum every year which is farther transmitted and popularized by CCTV 2.


In March 2018, the forum themed “breaking boundaries, looking at the future”, invited related scholars, experts and industry leaders such as Wu Xiaobo, Ren Xue’an and Liang Haishan to discuss the relationship between industrial boundary breakdown and innovative development, which got a good response. Therefore, we pick up the theme of “Technology-driven Restructuring, Ecology-based Reshaping” for the ninth session of China Household Electrical Appliance Development Summit in 2019 to further discuss approaches and ideas of self-challenging and innovative development.

2. Theme Interpretation of the 2019 Forum


IoT, AI, and big data constantly rewrite the way of life. What technology reconstructs is not so much as production technology, but as human interaction and the connection mode between people to things. Industry interconnection and ecological fission drove by “destroying the old and establishing the new” trigger the escalation of competition forms and business models. “Smart life · global platform” tells us to embrace the future intelligent era by discovering opportunities and challenges.


The organizer plans to invite well-known experts and scholars in the field of investment, technology and industry observation to share the most cutting-edge scientific and technological trends and discuss the impact of industrial ecological changes on life. At the same time, the leading brand executives of home appliances at home and abroad are also invited to analyze the latest views and achievements of enterprises from the strategic level.


Technology can lead the times, and empower the times. The forum will strive to present the most active thinking in the home appliance industry and look into a more diversified future for the industry and the technology era.
