Sustainable lighting solutions and LED technology integration: Key focuses of the 2014 show
Sustainable lighting solutions have become one of the biggest driving forces for growth in the lighting industry. Project-based enterprises in particular have adopted the concept as it offers greater opportunities for meeting various goals and policies designed for property and infrastructure development.
The 2014 show continues to be at the forefront of this concept by highlighting the integration of control technology into lighting products; showcasing diverse lighting applications in energy efficiency, luminosity, user comfort and environmental impact.
Controller and driver technology has rapidly grown in popularity among lighting professionals, for their ability to allow users to customise lighting by application, while providing effective energy efficiency. Current products and solutions for these state-of-the-art technologies will be on display at hall 12.2, an area solely dedicated to suppliers of controllers and drivers at the 2014 show.
LED technology integration will be another key focus for the 2014 lighting fair, by presenting a one-stop sourcing platform that covers the full LED industry value chain. This will include raw materials and wafers, LED chips, packaging materials, packages, modules and components, drivers and controllers, equipment as well as applications.
Ms Lucia Wong added: “The 2014 show will be a reflection of the lighting and LED industry of today and tomorrow. The industry is facing fierce consolidation. And my hope is it to provide attendees of the show a comprehensive view of all areas in lighting development as well as to facilitate interactions that can lead to business and technological collaboration among industry players.”
Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition, along with the concurrently-held Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology, is headed by the biennial Light + Building event, which will take place from 30 March – 4 April 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany.
