Light Building 2022 Autumn Edition: Business is Between People in a Digital Age

Electrification and digitalization offer enormous potential for saving around 40 percent of energy in the building sector. At the Light Building 2022 Autumn Edition in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, solutions were presented by over 1,500 exhibitors from 46 countries. The special edition came at just the right time to present solutions for the current challenges. The world’s leading trade fair for lighting and building services technology has proven its relevance as an international meeting place for the lighting industry.

Light Building 2022:  Solution-oriented into the Future

The restart of Light + Building after two and a half years of pandemic has been more than successful and the themes of the event offer the answers to the current challenges of our time. In addition personal encounters are and remain the central element of trade fairs. Business is done between people, even in this ongoing digital age.  In times of crisis, it takes courage and a willingness to take risks to look positively and be solution-oriented into the future. The exhibiting companies have impressively demonstrated this at the Light Building Autumn Edition.

Foundation stones for the future

The Light + Building Autumn Edition covers the areas of lighting and building services technology. In the area of electrical engineering, home and building automation, the focus was primarily on technical innovations that contribute to increasing energy efficiency in homes and buildings. The growing areas also include regenerative energy sources such as solar or photovoltaic panels, charging management systems for e-mobility and lighting control. Efficiency and sustainability also play an important role in the lighting sector. High-quality, modular lighting systems, in combination with digital control, custom LED optics provide light when brightness is actually needed. The newly planned lighting area was very well received by exhibitors and visitors. At 60 percent, this area still accounts for the largest share of the world’s leading trade fair.

Light + Building Digital Extension: until 14 October 2022

For the first time, new perspectives also opened up for all participants in the digital space: at the Light + Building Digital Extension, exhibitors and visitors were able to make targeted contact with each other and expand their network on the basis of intelligent match-making.  Lectures, discussion rounds and presentations are also available on-demand on the platform, so that knowledge transfer is still possible via the diverse supporting program of the leading international trade fair.

For the special edition of the leading international trade fair for lighting and building services technology, 92,838 visitors from 147 countries traveled to Frankfurt am Main. In addition to Germany, most of them came from Italy, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Austria, Great Britain and Poland. This means that international participation was at 55 percent. The high level of visitor satisfaction shows that the trip was worthwhile for them. 95 percent of the trade visitors are satisfied with the achievement of their visiting goals and the range of exhibits, and over 83 percent are already planning to visit Light + Building 2024.

Light + Building, which takes place every two years, was postponed several times due to the pandemic, but was now held as a one-off special edition in autumn at the request of the industry. In 2024, the fair will again occupy its spring slot as usual.

The next Light + Building will take place in Frankfurt am Main from 3 to 8 March 2024.
