Strategies in Light Europe, one of the Strategies in Light group of worldwide events for the LEDs and lighting markets, is holding its second annual conference in Milan, Italy on October 4-6.

Today started with two pre-conference workshops, one on thermal management and one on light measurement, as well as the Solid-State Lighting Investor Forum, which was organized by Berenberg Bank.

Immediately following the Investor Forum and workshops, Tim Whitaker, Editor of LEDs Magazine, kicked off the Keynote session to a standing-room-only crowd of over 300 attendees.

Dominik Wee and Arthur Jaunich of McKinsey & Company presented a positive outlook for the future of LED lighting within the global lighting market. Simon Fisher, General Manager of EMEA Indoor Luminaire Solutions of GE Lighting UK, discussed the issues of designing with LEDs and redefining the lit environment.

Last but not least, Vrinda Bhandarkar, Director of Lighting Research with PennWell's Strategies Unlimited market-research group, presented a review of the LED lighting markets, including a preliminary market forecast through 2015.

According to Christine Shaw, Senior VP of PennWell, which owns and produces Strategies in Light Europe: “This year’s event is surpassing all expectations with more than 850 registered attendees and a sold-out exhibit floor. This represents growth of 50% over our first-year event, with a robust and fully-packed agenda featuring some of the industry’s most respected influencers and decision makers.

"We look forward to a very successful week here in Milan and believe next year’s event, being held in Munich, Germany at the M.O.C. Event Centre on 18-20 September 2012, will be even stronger."
