Light & Tech to dominate Expo Lighting America 2019

20th February 2019

(Mexico) – Expo Lighting America will take place at the CitiBanamex Center in Mexico City on March 5-7.

The ninth edition of Expo Lighting America will return to Mexico City this March.

The annual event acts as a hub for the Central American lighting design community, gathering a multidisciplinary community of lighting enthusiasts through innovation, experiences and knowledge, in a bid to strengthen the light industry and culture in Mexico.

As Expo Lighting America organisers look to reflect on and understand the technological convergence, alongside the growing capabilities of the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and other technologies that are changing the world, this year’s event will operate under the central theme of Light & Tech, in which the relationship between light and technology will be explored.

Alongside keynote talks from Fisher Marantz Stone, Pelle Design and new media artist Maja Petric, the show will see the return of Dark Room, which will feature a set of light art installations with the intention of showing light without any distractions, so that it can be experimented with the latest developments of the illumination world.

This year’s event also introduces the Nuevos Talentos (New Talents) space, in which independent designers, young design firms and enterprises can showcase their creations.

Elsewhere, the ELA Showroom will showcase various solutions and applications focused on retail, smart home and landscape. This will be complemented with the most important brands in the world of decorative illumination in the Décor Lighting Pavilion.

Thanks to its Go Green programme, Expo Lighting America is the first exhibition in the lighting sector that is entirely sustainable, compensating 100% of the carbon footprint generated during the event through wind farms located in Oaxaca.

Once again, the event organisers have collaborated with opinion leaders, allies and new talents to put together a printed accompaniment – Insights & Inspiration. Edited in conjunction with, the fourth edition of the publication will gather the most innovative ideas and trends from the lighting world.
