The Internet of Things will be a highlight at this year's China Hi-Tech Fair (CHTF) in Shenzhen.

The famous enterprises that will show up include Huawei, ZTE, Baidu and Haier.
Moreover, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has also organized a theme pavilion in hall 5 called "Sensing China", to "support services with science and technology and to improve the scientific management level of China's future society". Showcased within are the scientific pay-offs obtained in the field of the Internet of Things over the past 10 years through organizing over 20 research institutes and their cooperative institutions, across over 80 projects.
From hall 1 to hall 9, from the IT pavilion to forums, the Internet of Things can be seen and felt almost everywhere at CHTF 2011, which has become the most authoritative pageant in China's Internet of Things industry.
