Europe's largest LED conference attracts global leader line-up

April 10, 2007
Industry speakers will reveal cutting-edge LED and OLED technologies for energy efficient lighting at EuroLED.

EuroLED, the fourth annual SSL conference and optoelectronics exhibition organized by Photonics Cluster (UK), will address the latest LED and OLED lighting technologies, applications and market growth trends with presentations from leading experts. More than 500 SSL attendees are expected at this prestigious three-day conference and exhibition.

Geoff Archenhold, conference co-chair, enthused: "The euroLED 2007 conference line-up is certainly the best to date and we believe it covers the majority of topics the industry wants to know about. The SSL industry is growing at a phenomenal rate and the conference has expanded significantly this year attracting some new and exciting speakers. I am personally looking forward to the European Commission’s perspective on SSL and the ASSIST workshop looking at recommendations for a variety of lighting application standards".

Keynote speakers for euroLED 2007 will include Mark McClear, Director of Business Development at Cree, Robert Steele of Strategies Unlimited, Manuel Zarauza VP Sales at Osram Opto Semiconductors and Paolo Bertoldi from the European Commission DG JRC.

The full agenda and speaker programme is now available on the euroLED 2007 conference website.

The three day conference and exhibition will take place on 5–7 June 2007 in Birmingham, UK, with the opening day featuring pre-conference workshops from OSRAM, Marl International, Future Lighting Solutions and the Lighting Research Centre. The full conference kicks off on 6 June with a technical and business-focused forum. The last day will feature the environmental aspects of LED lighting, architectural and residential lighting, displays and backlighting and medical applications.

Nina Blackmore, conference director stated: "I am delighted by the huge number of LED and lighting companies exhibiting at this year's event, which has doubled in size to include more than 50 companies. I have been told by many of the pre-registered delegates that the exhibition has become an essential part of the conference, as it allows them to interact with the entire LED component and fixture suppliers in one place at the same time enabling simpler purchasing decisions. This is exactly what industry wanted – a highly focused event."

New exhibitors so far include ACC Silicones, Anglia Components, Bergquist, Ceramtec, Cona Technology, EBV Elektronik, Intematix, Ningbo Brightech Optoelectronics, OSRAM, Pacer International, PerkinElmer, Power Integrations, ROAL Electronics and RS Components, to name but a few.
