Events: euroLED conference takes shape

Jan. 16, 2006
A major LEDs conference will be held in May in the UK.
The Photonics Cluster (UK) team says that it is "delighted" with the extent of high-profile industry support in the run up to its third annual LED conference and exhibition, which takes place on May 16-18, 2006, at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, UK.

Now in its third year, euroLED 2006 will unite leading experts from broad disciplines of the LED industry. Set to become the premier European event in Solid State Lighting, euroLED 2006 will provide unique networking opportunities with leading manufacturers, component and equipment suppliers, lighting specifiers and design engineers from companies who are shaping the future of LED technology.

The three-day event will combine an exhibition with conference talks from leading experts providing strategic insight into the latest technologies, emerging application markets and common issues of LED installation and maintenance.

Confirmed speakers form a truly international line-up, including Lexedis Lighting (the joint venture between Toyoda Gosei and TridonicAtco), Radiant Imaging, Hella, Kyocera, Heptagon Oy, NuSil Technology and Tridonic Optoelectronics, amongst others.

There will be an equally impressive line-up of UK companies who are leading the way forward in solid-state lighting technologies, including Enfis, Marl International, Westinghouse Systems, iSuppli, Techspan Systems, Lumidrives, Hill and Smith plc and Orbik Electronics.

The third day of the event (May 18) will consist of reports from two fact-finding missions to Japan and USA, organized by the UK Department of Trade & Industry's Global Watch service.

A selection of workshops will offer a practical, hands-on approach to driving technologies, high-brightness LEDs, LED measurement and safety standards, with participation from experts representing Supertex Inc and Marl International, among others.
