Mar 17th, 2010
Date Announced: 17 Mar 2010

-- New exhibitors in the technical lighting and lamps segment
-- New layout for building services technology

Around 2,200 exhibitors, including all national and international market leaders, will exhibit at Light+Building, The World’s Leading Trade Fair for Architecture and Technology, in Frankfurt am Main from 11 to 16 April 2010. On an area of over 240,000 square metres at the fully booked-up exhibition centre, Light+Building presents innovations and energy-saving system solutions in the fields of lighting, electrical engineering and house and building automation under the motto, ‘energy efficiency’. But how can visitors find what they need from this huge range of products and services? The answer is easily thanks to logically arranged product groups, which enable visitors to find their way around quickly and without difficulty. Now, as the result of an optimised layout for building-services technology, this will be even easier at Light+Building 2010. Additionally, initial orientation is given by the three product sections: lighting, electrical engineering and house and building automation.

At the world’s biggest platform for the lighting market, over 1,500 companies present the complete range of lighting technology including technical luminaires and lamps of all kinds and for all applications, designer luminaires in all styles from classic to modern and a huge selection of lighting components and accessories. At Light+Building, visitors can be sure of finding all future-oriented lighting technologies, such as LED luminaires for commercial and public buildings, as well as for the home.

Technical luminaires and lamps occupy five exhibition halls – 3.0, 3.1, 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 – as well as the ‘Forum’ and the ‘Festhalle’. The international companies making their presentations in Hall 3 include Artemide, Bega Gantenbrink-Leuchten, Erco Leuchten, Flos, Fontana Arte, iGuzzini illuminazione, Luceplan, Trilux and Targetti Sankey. In the ‘Festhalle’ and ‘Forum’, Osram, Philips, Siteco Beleuchtungstechnik and Zumtobel Lighting number among the companies represent­ed. Many new exhibitors from the LED sector are taking part in the technical luminaires and lamps segment at Light+Building 2010, e.g., LG Innotek, Sharp Electronics and Toshiba. Together with other leading LED manufacturers, such as Nichia, Panasonic Lighting and Seoul Semiconductors, they can be found in Halls 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2.

Decorative luminaires of all styles for the home and the contract market will be on show in Halls 5.1, 6.0 and 6.1. Decorative Light is split into three main styles – modern, classic-modern and classic traditional – to make it easier for visitors to find their way around this product segment.
