The 19th HKTDC Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) will be staged from 27 to 30 October 2017 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The HKTDC Hong Kong International Outdoor and Tech Light Expo will also see its second edition from 26 to 29 October 2017 at the AsiaWorld-Expo.
Last year, the two lighting events featured more than 3000 exhibitors from 37 countries and regions, and over 50 000 global buyers, forming the world’s largest lighting marketplace with enormous business opportunities, and an ideal platform to tap into the international market.
Worldwide lighting brands shine
At the Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition), the Hall of Aurora comes to the limelight with top-notch brands around the globe presenting sophisticated collections of lighting accessories and applications. Buyers can browse a wide array of worldwide lighting brands, including BJB, BLAUPUNKT, PHILIPS, LEDUS, MEGAMAN and VIRIBRIGHT.
High demand for green lighting
Consumers share growing concerns around environmental-friendliness and prefer energy-efficient, environmentally friendly and longer lasting products. Australia, the United States, the Chinese mainland and the European Union have phased out the sale of incandescent lamps that cannot meet the minimum energy efficiency requirements. The demand for energy-efficient LED lighting products therefore remains keen.
The LED & Green Lighting zone at the Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) displays a wide array of energy-efficient lighting for commercial and residential uses. Last year, this zone attracted over 1 000 exhibitors and was the biggest in scale at the fair. In response to the market’s blazing demand for LED lighting, the LED Essentials zone is newly set up to display different LED lighting accessories.
Smart lighting for a brighter future
In response to the rising concepts of smart city and smart home, the industry has been proactive in developing cutting-edge smart lighting systems for residential, industrial and commercial uses to keep up with the technological trend. At the Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition), the Smart Lighting & Solutions zone showcases latest lighting designs, software, management systems and control panels. Other highlighted zones include Commercial Lighting, Household Lighting and many more. Related product zones are grouped together in the fairground to allow buyers to find their preferred products and exhibitors efficiently.
Multiple events to promote industry exchange
A series of seminars and forums will be held during the fair for industry players to keep abreast of the latest technological trends, market developments, and testing and certification information, as well as to exchange professional insights for strategic business planning. Networking receptions will take place to facilitate bond-building within the industry.
