Light + Building 2018 with new themes and 2,600 exhibitors on track for success
‘Connected – Secure – Convenient’ is the new motto of the coming Light + Building, which will be held with new main themes, a new special exhibition and an additional exhibition hall in Frankfurt am Main from 18 to 23 March 2018.
Focusing on the key issues of the ‘smartification of everyday life’ and ‘aesthetics and well-being in harmony’, the industry is preparing to present intelligent and networked solutions, future-oriented technologies and current design trends, which increase not only economic efficiency of buildings but also the comfort and safety and security of the users, at the world’s biggest trade fair for lighting and building-services technology. As a fair of innovations, Light + Building brings together all power-controlled building-services systems and promotes integrated building planning with a product spectrum unrivalled in both horizontal and vertical terms.
In line with the high degree of dynamism in the sector, the interim results for Light + Building 2018 could hardly be better. All market leaders have already registered for the fair and a total of 2,600 exhibitors are expected to launch their latest products and innovations onto the world market for lighting, electrical technology and house and building automation. “Light + Building is the setting for big ideas and decisive impulses. Accordingly, we are delighted with the very positive exhibitor response and are sure that the coming edition of Light + Building will once again underscore its unparalleled function as the leading trade fair for the sector”, says Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Messe Frankfurt.
One of the focal-point themes of the coming fair will be safety and security technology. The combination of different systems, such as video monitoring and access control, their interconnection and integration in building automation are important aspects of interest to both the industry and users. Thus, the fields of house and building automation and power-controlled safety and security technology will be concentrated together for the first time in Hall 9.1 at Light + Building 2018 to create a focal point – a centre for integrated building-services technology – offering visitors a complete overview of the entire spectrum of house and building automation, as well as electric safety and security technology. Enriching the new location will be a special show entitled ‘SECURE! Connected Security in Buildings’ and the Intersec Forum, which will be held concurrently with the fair on five days from 19 to 23 March 2018.
In addition to the concentrated presentation in Hall 9.1, leading manufacturers will present innovations from the world of safety and security technology in other halls of Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre. And, thanks to a brochure entitled ‘Guide to Safety and Security Technology’, visitors will be able to obtain a quick overview of the complete spectrum to be seen at the fair.
