(India) – The inaugural edition of Light + LED Expo India, organised by Messe Frankfurt India and the Electric Lamp and Component Manufacturers Association (ELCOMA), has been moved to November 2022.
With the aim to reunite lighting industry stakeholders at an opportune time, the event – the biggest lighting exhibition in India – will now be held on 3-5 November 2022 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
Speaking of the launch edition of the event, Raj Manek, Executive Director and Board Member of Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings, said: “LED Expo and Light India have created a niche in the lighting industry by being the top choice for trade. With the enormity at which these shows are hosted, there is no doubt that the launch edition of Light + LED Expo India will converge the entire lighting industry on a global level.
“Our aim with this strategic merger is to make India a hub for investments in the lighting sector and to provide equal trade opportunities for domestic as well as international stakeholders. I am confident that the new dates will allow us to accomplish the goals we have set for the momentous platform.”
While the launch edition of Light + LED Expo India has been postponed until 2022, the 2021 edition of LED Expo New Delhi will be held from 18-20 November, as per its original booking.
Shyam Sujan, Secretary General, ELCOMA, said: “The Indian lighting market is valued at INR 3 billion in 2021 and will register a year-on-year surge in the next three years at 10% to 11% with LED market having a share of 92% of total lighting value. This demonstrates that India has the potential to become the world’s most lucrative market for lighting and components industry.
“We want the exhibitors and visitors to make the most of the business opportunities offered at Light + LED Expo India and the dates for the upcoming edition were decided in tandem with the industry’s stakeholders.”
Covering the entire lighting ecosystem, the launch of Light + LED Expo India in 2022 will open doors to new trade opportunities for lighting and component manufacturers and suppliers, enabling them to strengthen their supply chain and tap into investments provisioned by the Indian government, under its Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme.
