Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition 2013 returns with 70% of booths already reserved

Fair received increased support from overseas pavilion participants

The Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition, Asia’s largest trade fair for the international lighting industry, returns for its 18th edition from 9 – 12 June 2013 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, China. Organised by Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, the show is viewed as one of the world’s most influential and comprehensive events on the state of lighting and LED technology.

The Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition will again be held concurrently with Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology, focused on the latest developments in electrical engineering as well as building and home automation, and Building Solar China. The combined shows will take place across 21 halls, covering more than 210,000 sqm of exhibition space. Over 2,900 exhibitors are expected to participate at the shows.

The Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition will focus on the most up to date lighting and LED technology. More than 70% of booth space was booked within three months after the 2012 show. Leading brands confirmed at the 2013 show include Alanod, Almeco, BJB, Citizen, Delta, Dow Corning, Everlight, Epistar, Fulham, Kingsun, Opple lighting, QSSI, Tons Lighting, GE, Nichia, Seoul semiconductor and many more.

Mr Richard Li, General Manager Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd noted: “The Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition continues to be the industry platform where visitors and exhibtiors can gain a comprehensive overview on cutting-edge technology for the Asian lighting industry.”

The show’s 18th edition will be divided into two functional areas across the fairground:

Area A – Home to 10 of the shows’ 18 halls, this section will focus on:

  • Brand-name technical and decorative lighting
  • Accessories and electronics components
  • General technical and decorative lighting
  • Electric Lights

Area B – Composed of the other 8 halls, this area is officially known as the LED Asia zone. Attendees will find suppliers focused on these areas of LED technology:

  • Retrofit lamps
  • Lighting fixtures
  • Display panels
  • Drivers/Controllers
  • Raw Materials
  • Substrates
  • Chips
  • Packaging
  • Production and inspection equipments
  • OLEDs

In previous editions, feedback was received from numerous lighting professionals on the importance of powerful and reliable controllers and drivers to ensure the quality and durability of lighting products. In order to cater to this market demand, hall 12.2 has been dedicated to companies specialising in controller and driver technology.

Fair received increased support from overseas pavilion participants

Industry association support remains strong for the lighting show. The Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association and the Taiwan Lighting Fixture Export Association have both confirmed the return of pavilions from their respective regions.

Due to positive response, The Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association will join hands with the Hong Kong Productivity Council for organising the Hong Kong pavilion. Returning for the third time to the lighting show, the pavilion will double its booth size to 252 sqm for the 2013 show. In addition, a series of seminars and business matching programmes will run concurrently within the pavilion’s exhibiting space.

The Taiwan pavilion will make its fourth annual return to the fair. As of now, more than 65% of booths in the Taiwan pavilion have already been booked. Mr David Cheung, Chairman, Taiwan Lighting Fixture Export Association commented: “The 2012 show provided great business to our member exhibitors. The Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition continues to be ahead of the latest industry trends each year. We believe Taiwanese lighting suppliers can offer great solutions to the fairs attendees, and will continue to organise a pavilion at the show.”

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.
