Why Your Visit Is Worth It

You won’t make a mistake to direct your ambition towards Light + Building, because it’s the best possible platform to work towards greater brand recognition and international sales. There’s no denying it’s the biggest event for its industry, which means everyone’s going to exhibit. Case in point, here are the numbers from last edition:

  • 2700+ international exhibitors from 55 countries showcased at the event;
  • 220,000+ international trade visitors from 160 countries made the trip;
  • 256,000+ square metres of exhibition space used.

Industry Relevance

Light + Building has two decades under its belt as the brand was found in 2000 and editions are scheduled every two years. The international trade fair positions itself at the intersection of the lighting, electrical engineering, building automation, and civil-engineering software sectors, and this has contributed to its spectacular rise in popularity and size.

It’s here in Frankfurt that you see the most cutting-edge concepts take shape and the next generation of technology make its debut. The product portfolio consists of electronic components, façade technology, glazing, lamps, LED lighting, air-conditioning, broadband distribution technology, daylight technology, ventilation systems, photovoltaic systems and reception antennae. All these products and design become fully alive when you see them in the shows and presentations at Emotion @ Light + Building.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

Investors, architects, engineers, planners, operators as well as wholesale and retail suppliers make it a point to attend Light + Building and for good reason. As we have already established, it’s a platform where you can inform yourself about everything concerning the industry, and negotiate smart deals in numerous regions. The trade fair is decidedly international with a strong presence from China, Italy, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, the UK, Belgium, Russia, India, Finland, Korea, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden and Ukraine. We also want to emphasize that out of all the exhibitors to showcase last edition, over 1900 came from outside Germany.
