The International LED Summit

Once the Light Talks are over, the International LED Summit would focus on technologies, innovations and applications steered by the committee of experts. Aimed at driving knowledge in key areas of lighting design to enhance efficiency, the summit will provide a relaxed environment emphasizing on smart technologies for innovations in lighting besides the latest trends in application areas followed by the expectations for future to a highly qualified audience. The conference would attract high-powered keynotes followed by stimulating discussions in an open environment as invited speakers will highlight and demonstrate the trend of LED lighting & energy saving technology, government policies and benefits of using for better consumer understanding.


The Summit will be highly focused on case studies, practical design issues and views on trends, innovations, and technological advancements in both interior and exterior spaces.
