GLA president Jan Denneman to keynote International LED and Green Lighting Conference 2014

June 12, 2014
Seoul -- Jan Denneman, President of the Global Lighting Association (GLA), Chairman of the Zhaga Consortium and Vice President of Philips Lighting will be the featured key note at the 12th annual International LED and Green Lighting Conference 2014 which runs concurrently with the LED and OLED Expo 2014 on June 24-25 at KINTEX, Korea.
An international roster of speakers from Korea, Europe, the U.S., Taiwan and Japan will round out the two-day program which will look at geographic and product market trends, standardization issues, public procurement as a driver of LED innovation and acceptance, and the latest LED and OLED technology innovations. Denneman has more than 36 years of experience in the lighting industry and as the head of both GLA and Zhaga brings a unique perspective to the conference. While Zhaga has a limited focus, concentrating on standardization of LED light engines, GLA has a much wider scope, including promotion of standardization, harmonization of lighting legislation, consumer education, and customer expectations. Denneman will kick-off Day 1 of the conference with a broad overview of the status and trends of the international LED lighting industry. Other Day 1 presenters will continue the discussion of geographic market trends with a closer look at the U.S. LED market as well as a review of indoor and outdoor lighting standards and a look at standards and certifications for LED lighting products overall by Dr. Cha Jae Hyun of the Korea Agency for Technology and Standards. Dr. Jang Ji Ho of the Korea Maritime and Ocean University will take a novel look at the current status of LED lighting in the maritime industries. The program will also examine the role of government as a driver of innovation and public acceptance of LED lighting. The Korean government has announced plans to increase the share of LEDs in the nation's lighting source mix to about 30% by 2015. Speakers will address the role of the Korean government as a key stakeholder in development of the LED industry from policy initiatives of the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy to national R&D support to public procurement as a catalyst to hasten the transition to LED lighting acceptance. Private sector companies represented at the conference include Vecco Instruments, NOVALED, Lumens, LG Innotek, Mosheo Corporation and G2B Consulting. Attendees will also hear from prominent members of institutional research world, such as Korea Photonics Technology Institute, Seoul National University, National Taiwan University, the Japan National Institute for Materials Science, and the Korea Evaluation Institute of Industrial Technology. While the Day 1 focus is primarily on market trends, standardization and policy issues, Day 2 of the conference turns to LED and OLED technology discussions, including a strong focus on OLEDs. OLED sessions feature presentations on “Material Development for OLED Lighting” by Dr. Andreas Haldi of Lumens, "Fabrication of Multilayered OLEDs by Solution Process" by Dr. Yong-Pu of Yamagata University, and "Light Extraction Technologies for Efficient OLED Technologies" by Dr. Moon Jae-Hyun of the Korea Electronics and Telecommunications Institute.
