Expo to spotlight lighting industry trends
Manama, June 6, 2011
The latest developments and trends in the lighting industry will be under the spotlight at the upcoming 'Light Insight Arabia' expo to be held in Dubai.
Organised by leading German trade fair and conference organiser Epoc Messe Frankfurt, 'Light Insight Arabia' runs from September 12 to 14 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
'This is a niche and highly specialised show which deserves the place it holds in the calendars of some of the world's leading architects, lighting consultants and designers,' Epoc Messe Frankfurt chief executive officer Ahmed Pauwels.
'Additionally, building on the success of last year's Light Focus Conference, we have rebranded it with a specific focus on this region and it is now called Light Insight Arabia,' he noted.
'The conference has established itself as an integral part of this event and brings together some of the world's leading experts in the field to discuss hot topics in terms of environmental care,' Pauwels added.
This year's conference which will focus on better lighting solutions within the Arabic world has already confirmed leading experts in the field.
'The usage of energy efficient lighting in the Middle East and Africa could result in potential savings of $16.88 billion a year, while globally the savings would be $155.45 billion,' said Pauwels, citing a recent market research.
Switching from traditional to modern lighting systems in public and commercial buildings, could result in huge savings in energy costs, he added.
The conference will be a key meeting place for architects, lighting consultants, designers, manufacturers, suppliers, and other industry professionals.
It will be a platform for industry professionals to have lively discussions on energy efficient topics with a particular slant on sustainable lighting solutions.
'Our Light Insight Arabia team strives to keep abreast of industry trends and as such, the latest and most up to date topics are presented during the three-day conference,' he said.-TradeArabia News Service
