Organisers hail returning Light + Building a success

12th October 2022

(Germany) – With solutions from more than 1,500 exhibitors from 46 countries presented at the returning Light + Building, organisers have described the event as “more than successful”.

Wolfgang Marzin, Chairman of the Board of Management at Messe Frankfurt, said of the show: “We are delighted with the extremely high level of interest shown by the visitors who came to Light + Building Autumn Edition.

“Personal encounters are and remain the central element of trade fairs. Business is done between people. In times of crisis, it takes courage and a willingness to take risks to look positively and solution-oriented into the future. The exhibiting companies have impressively demonstrated this at Light + Building.”

Held from 2-6 October, this is the first time that Light + Building has been held since March 2018, following two and a half years of cancellations during the Covid-19 pandemic. The returning show saw 92,838 visitors from 147 countries travel to Frankfurt. In addition to Germany, the most visitors came from Italy, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Austria, Great Britain and Poland, with international participation at 55%. Post-show surveys show a high level of visitor satisfaction, with 95% of trade visitors satisfied with the achievement of their visiting goals and the range of exhibits, while more than 83% are already planning to visit Light + Building 2024.

After this one-off Autumn Edition of the fair, Light + Building will return to its usual Spring slot in 2024, taking place in Frankfurt from 3-8 March.
