Light + Building 2016 sets new records

More international than ever before – every second visitor from outside Germany

Light + Building has once again confirmed its position as the world’s leading trade fair for lighting and building-services technology. The world’s biggest event for lighting, electrical technology and home and building automation closed its doors today after setting new records. Growth was recorded in all important indices – in the number of visitors, the number of exhibitors and the area occupied.

For the industry, a large proportion of visitors from outside Germany is important for giving the fair a positive rating. Thus, Dr Klaus Mittelbach, Chairman of the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (Zentralverband Elektrotechnik- und Elektronikindustrie e.V. – ZVEI), said, “Light + Building 2016 came up to the high expectations of the ZVEI exhibitors: digitalisation, networking and energy efficiency were the key issues in all halls of both the lighting and the building-services sectors.

As in the past, German artisans made up one of the largest groups of visitors. Ingolf Jakobi, General Manager of the Central Association of the German Electrical and Information Technology Trades (Zentralverband der Deutschen Elektro- und Informationstechnischen Handwerke – ZVEH) underscored the importance of Light + Building as an extremely valuable platform for the electrical trade: “Intelligent building networks and energy efficiency are inextricably linked in this age of digitalisation. Both themes – and, therefore, the expertise of the electrical trade in these fields, were more in focus than ever before at Light + Building.”

The next Light + Building will be held from 18 to 23 March 2018.
