Light + Building, the world’s biggest trade fair for lighting and building-services technology, will be held from March 18 to 23. The innovation-driven show brings together all power-controlled systems from the sector and showcases integrated building planning with a spectrum of products.
The motto of this year’s show is ‘Connected – Secure – Convenient’. “The industry is preparing to present intelligent and networked solutions, future-oriented technologies and current design trends, which increase not only economic efficiency of buildings, but also the comfort and safety and security of the users,” organiser Messe Frankfurt informs.
According to the organiser, around 2,600 exhibitors will launch their latest lighting, electrical technology and house and building automation products.
Here are the top two themes of the show:
Aesthetics and Well-being in Harmony
A focal point in the lighting product segment of the trade fair will be the presentation of the “latest” design trends in the lighting market and design expertise of exhibitors. Digitalisation has paved the way for a new dimension of luminaire design, and lighting-technology innovations are shifting the spotlight to people and their personal needs, as shown by the increasing significance of Human Centric Lighting (HCL). This involves, inter alia, the effects of light on people and on their health, performance capability and well-being.
The Smartification of Everyday Life
A key role in the construction and operation of intelligent and networked buildings is played by electrical technology and house and building automation. The increasing inter-linkage and digitalisation of electrical installations increases the quality of life at home and work. At Light + Building, the industry will present solutions and technologies oriented not only towards low energy consumption and modern safety & security expectations, but also individual creative options and a “high” level of comfort.
