Illuminotronica completes first trade show in Bologna

(Italy) – The Illuminotronica (Lumi) exhibition in Bologna, Italy, made its successful debut between 29 November and 1 December.

Drawing in more than 6,000 visitors from the industry, including architects, engineers, installers, system integrators, energy and facility managers, buyers and technical offices of companies and local authorities, Illuminotronica (Lumi) is referred to as a reference point for the new integration market for application of IoT technologies in many different sectors, such as lighting, building automation and security.

Promoted by Assodel, the Italian Association of Electronics Clusters, the event represented the new integration market by highlighting the ways of doing business with IoT.

The event hosted 95 training and conference sessions, including digital retail and experience design, eco-sustainable design and near zero emission building; services for the smart city and the circular smart city model; building management and energy saving best practices; smart lighting and interconnected light; privacy and digital security; connectivity and communication protocols.

Focusing on matching the demand and supply of innovation, with the aim of supporting digital transformation in the built environment, the trade show presented a new model of exhibition.

“Lumi puts in synergy for the professionals of the supply chain and brings together system integrators, designers, installers, software and hardware manufacturers. The goal is to represent the ecosystem of integration: from technology to applications through connectivity, bringing new business opportunities to companies and professionals,” explained Elena Baronchelli, general manager of Illuminotronica.

As a result of this year’s success, with more than 200 participating companies connecting with Bologna Fairground, the event will return in 2019. With its partnership with BolognaFiere, Lumi wants to achieve the goal of digitisation in the built environment sector including all different spaces, from offices to shops, buildings and the urban environment.
