Appliance & Electronics World Expo 2019 (AWE 2019), an industry gala for global home appliance and consumer electronics industry, kicks off on March 14 at Shanghai New International Expo Center. Themed with “Falling in love with AI·Smart Life”, AWE 2019 puts on show a full spectrum of the latest AI innovations covering home appliances, consumer electronics, smart home appliances, IoT, AI, 5G, smart driving and smart recreation, among others. With an unprecedented 900 exhibitors present on the scene, this year’s AWE has its place reaffirmed as Asia’s largest home appliance and consumer electronics expo and one of the world’s three top-notch home appliance and consumer electronics expos.

Covering 130,000 m2 across ten halls of the grand pavilion (from W1-W5 to N1-N5), AWE 2019 puts on display smart products and solutions in a broad range, including white goods, smart TVs, 3C digital products, cooking and sanitary appliances, environmental equipment, beauty and personal care products, cleaning appliances, healthcare equipment, smart appliances, AI, wearable devices, VR/AR, IoT, internet-capable vehicles and robots.

AWE 2019 houses almost 900 of the world’s premiere home appliance makers, consumer electronics manufacturers, core component suppliers, and IT/internet companies. In the limelight are not only local heavyweights (e.g. Haier, Midea, Hisense, TCL, Skyworth, Konka, Changhong, Gree, Aux, Robam and Fotile), but also international industry giants (e.g. Bosch, Siemens, AEG, Panasonic, Sony, Sharp, Samsung, LG, A.

More than that, a large host of brands make their debut at this year’s AWE, like LG Display, Rinnai, Nobilia, Gorenje, Colmo and iflytek. It’s worthy of note that AWE joins hands with over a dozen AMK members, including Nobilia, Schott and Nolte, forming the strongest array of top German kitchen brands in AWE history.
