“THINKLIGHT: A new dimension” at GILE

The 21st edition of the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition, the most influential and comprehensive lighting and LED event in Asia, is set to take place from 9 – 12 June 2016. Once again, the event will be held at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, China.

At the fair’s upcoming edition, participants can expect the forward-thinking theme, “THINKLIGHT: A new dimension”, to take centre stage and promote out-of-the-box thinking to manage shifting market dynamics. Presently, lighting is being used for purposes beyond those of basic illumination such as detecting occupancy, adjusting to different moods, conserving energy and optimising operation via remote controls. The functions of lighting greatly increase when combined with intelligent motion or ambient light sensors and integrated into programmable networks.

Referencing the 2016 show’s theme, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Ltd, expressed: “In the Internet Plus era, the lighting industry is evolving with opportunities abound. Smart lighting has become a vital element in IoT-enabled homes as lighting plays a larger role in appliances, heating systems and metering. Such advancements in lighting technologies not only serve to enhance functionality and efficiency, but also to enable diversified applications to optimise living comfort. Perseverance, exploration and interaction are key factors to sector development and we must continue to work closely with the lighting community to explore and unveil the next industry breakthrough. The fair continues to be a trusted platform for showcasing innovative technologies and encouraging industry players to think unconventionally from technical, market and design perspectives.”

Innovative lighting-related equipment, components, technologies and applications in one integrated platform

The event’s extensive product category coverage is unrivalled in terms of depth and breadth. As an integrated platform, the one-stop solutions exhibition facilitates sourcing by not only fostering business collaboration between exhibitors, but also by consolidating lighting-related equipment, components, technologies and applications into one location for buyers.

Influenced by the Industry 4.0 revolution, industrial lighting and LED plants are adopting increasingly automated manufacturing production processes. As such, more intelligent machinery is in demand. Related solutions to be displayed at the fair include:

Equipment & Component

-        Simulation, inspection, measurement, testing and evaluation 
         equipment
-        Lighting accessories and electronic components
-        Components for LED packages (Wafers, phosphor, sealing 
         materials, substrates)

The fair also aims to help industry players in the LED arena remain competitive in a challenging general lighting market. To do so, they must improve efficacy, reduce costs and increase colour consistency. Related exhibits this year include:

LED Technology

-        LED chips
-        LED packaging
-        Power supply and ICs (LED drivers, driver ICs, converters)
-        LED modules and light engines

Furthermore, various lighting solution exhibits will focus on the trending market topics of sustainability, quality of lights and smart controls. Related solutions to be showcased include:

Lighting Application

-        Residential lighting
-        Commercial lighting (Retail, office, hospitality, industrial)
-        Architectural lighting
-        Urban lighting
-        Transport lighting
-        Electric lights

The 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 13 – 18 March 2016 in Frankfurt, Germany.

Messe Frankfurt also offers a series of other light and building technology events worldwide, including the Shanghai International Lighting Fair, BIEL Light + Building in Argentina, Light Middle East in the United Arab Emirates, Interlight Moscow powered by Light + Building in Russia, Light India, the LED Expo New Delhi, and the LED Expo Mumbai in India.
