20 years of Light + Building

Dynamic Digitalization is the guiding theme of next year´s fair

Light + Building, the world´s leading fair for lighting and networked building technology, is from March 8 to 13, 2020, in Frankfurt/Main under the claim "Connecting. Pioneering. Fascinating" with Dynamic Digitalization as their overarching element. In its 20th year the show highlights under the Top Theme "Connecting" the sometimes variable roles of energy providers and consumers. Also intelligent electric infrastructure of a district, an advanced e-charging infrastructure and safety are aspects of this topic area.

"Pioneering" offers information about Light as a Service, predictive maintenance and Building Information Modeling (BIM) to architects, planners, designers, commerce, and craftsmen.

Fascinating luminaire designs
Nowadays design does not exclusively refer to the shape of the lamp. As important are its technical features and connectivity. This includes the mega trend "functional aesthetics" which consciously goes without ornamentation and instead concentrates on lighting requirements in different situations. The Top Theme "Fascinating" casts a futuristic glance at modern worlds of life and labor while the contemporary quotes of archetypical designs stand for emotionality.

Light + Building 2018 has welcomed 220,864 visitors which found information about products and innovations presented by 2,719 exhibitors. Also in 2020 the public light event "Luminale" will again accompany the fair from March 12 to15 in Frankfurt and Offenbach. About 250,000 participants make it one of the biggest events in the Rhine-Main region.
