For 2013, the fair has gained some new overseas supporters, including the Korea Photonics Technology Institute and the Lighting Council Australia. Additionally, the show is held together with a series of other events within the Light+Building portfolio. By utilising the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition’s industry influence and position, buyers looking to source LED, building and even solar technology can discover new business prospects.

Green lighting and project-based business opportunities become central focuses of 2013 show

“Go green, Think green and Act green” are some of the slogans currently emphasised in the lighting industry. LEDs particularly are an important technology in the green lighting business. For the 2013 show, a strong focus will be given to the growth of LED technology through the fair’s thematic zone “LED Asia”. The zone will be spread across eight exhibition halls, showcasing the full LED industry chain from raw material procurement to final product application.

Several national and regional pavilions are scheduled to be held within LED Asia. For Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Electronics Industries Association (HKEIA) has organised the region’s pavilion with the support of the Hong Kong Productivity Council. The pavilion will highlight the unique benefits the region’s LED lighting specialists have to offer to the international community. Ir Raymond Chiu, Principle Consultant, Hong Kong Productivity Council noted: “Looking forward, I am excited about our partnership with HKEIA and Messe Frankfurt. For local LED firms, working with our council at this show can reduce their costs, extend their reach to new markets, build their brands overseas and help them meet more prospective customers effectively.”

Another key concept that follows current green trends is the compatibility of LEDs with solar technology. To highlight integrated solar business solutions, Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd has partnered up with WIP GmbH & Co Planungs-KG in organising the concurrent fair “Building Solar China (Guangzhou)”. The event is geared towards promoting the development of integrated solar and smart technology solutions in buildings. By hosting the two fairs concurrently, exhibitors and visitors are able to witness the connections between lighting technology and the growing integration of solar devices in building projects.

In addition, the show’s other concurrent fair “Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology” focuses on electrical engineering as well as building and home automation and further attracts project-based buyers, allowing them to acquire both lighting products and building technology solutions at one central location. Buyers can then also witness the overlapping business potential of intelligent building with lighting technology. For lighting exhibitors, the concurrent light and building shows help them develop strategic partnerships with building technology manufactures, capture opportunities in the growing light control market and provide total solutions to various sectors of the building industry.

Both Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition and Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology are headed by the biennial Light+Building event, which will take place from 30 March – 4 April 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany.
