Planning underway for Light + Building 2022

Messe Frankfurt Exhibition – Pietro Suetra

(Germany) – With the new target firmly in sight, planning for the Light + Building Autumn Edition from 2 to 6 October 2022 is in full swing.

More than 1,300 exhibitors from 46 countries are already lined up in autumn for the restart of the lighting and building technology sector in Frankfurt am Main.

“In the last few weeks, we have contacted all exhibitors at Light + Building and talked about the possibilities for the new date. Many important national and international industry players have confirmed their participation. The Building side is very well positioned again and leading manufacturers from the safety and security sector complete the range. We had to restructure the exhibitors from the lighting sector because the availability of halls here is different in autumn than at the original date in March. Despite the unusual timing for innovation presentations, many lighting exhibitors are committed to Light + Building as a meeting place for the sector and ensure an attractive, diverse and international lighting sector,” explains Iris Jeglitza-Moshage, Senior Vice President Technology.

The manufacturers of the lighting and building technology sector jointly decided on the date in autumn. “We are currently hearing again and again from exhibitors and visitors that the date for the personal meeting is still needed this year. We are confident that the 2022 event will be a good bridge to get back to a much-needed and normal trade fair schedule,” Jeglitza-Moshage continues.

In 2024, Light + Building will once again take place in its usual slot in March.

At Light + Building Autumn Edition, visitors can expect a broad overview and insight into the industry: All electricity-carrying trades will be represented. So far, in lighting and luminaire design, AEC, Artemide, Bega, Casambi, Ledvance, Linea Light, Molto Luce, Nichia and Samsung will be present. In addition to a large number of Italian exhibitors, the other top exhibitor countries include Turkey, Spain, Poland, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Belgium, Greece, France and Austria.

Exhibitors in Hall 8.0 will be showing innovations in areas of safety, efficiency, light sources and control, as well as lighting components. Halls three, four, six and 10 are devoted entirely to lighting, with a unique range of products including designer luminaires in all styles, technical luminaires, outdoor and street lighting as well as emergency and safety lighting. There is a promotion area of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action for young companies in the decorative luminaires product area on the East Area.

With the start of the event, this will then be expanded into the Light + Building Digital Extension. Parallel to the physical trade fair in Frankfurt, the digital platform will offer, from 2 to 14 October 2022, new opportunities for networking, knowledge exchange and encounters. The additional offer helps to expand one’s own circle of contacts in a targeted manner via AI-supported match-making. The platform also provides more independence from time and place: Exhibitors can hold product presentations via video streaming, get in touch with customers digitally and all participants have the opportunity to find out about the Light + Building programme items on-demand following the live event.

The Light + Building event will take place from 2 to 6 October 2022. The Intersec Forum will open in parallel from 3 to 6 October 2022. The Light + Building Digital Extension is accessible from 2 to 14 October 2022.
