The world’s largest trade fair for lighting and building technology starts with over 2600 exhibitors in Germany next week.
The Light and Building Show opens its doors at the Messe Frankfurt from March 18-23, with an opening time of 9pm to 6pm on Sunday to Thursday and 9pm-5pm Friday.
The latest products and innovations for systems and solutions and the modern way to approach the planning and control of buildings are among the core themes.
Smart technology for the home and non-domestically are evident in the two key issues, ‘the smartification of everyday life’ and ‘aesthetics and well-being in harmony.’
‘Connected-secure-convenient’ is the motto for the show and 2650 companies will show off their wares and all of the big names in their sectors will be present.
Of the 210,000 visitors that are expected to pass through the doors, almost half will have made the trip from outside Germany.
Among them will be a healthy number of architects and designers, who seldom miss the opportunity to follow the current trends through the trade fair, which is held every two years.
The numbers are backed up by the figures from Light and Building 2016 where 216,610 attended, with 106,049 of those non-German visitors.
They looked around 2,626 exhibitors, of which 1,775 came from another country with the total covering a space of 249,100 square metres. The 2018 event it set to be even bigger.
Technical lighting, lamps and components were of major interest to over half (59 per cent) of those present in 2016.
