Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Messe Frankfurt has decided jointly with its partners ZVEI and AVEH and the Trade Fair Advisory Council to resume its normal biannual schedule. They will hold the next Light + Building event from March 13 to 18, 2022.
The world's largest trade fair for lighting and building services, Light + Building presents the latest products in the fields of lighting, electrical engineering, home and building automation. It is known as the industry hotspot for architects, planners, electrical installers, retailers and the real estate sector from all over the world. For companies like GRE Alpha, it is easily the largest global event for the LED and solid-state lighting sectors.
In an email dated the 7th of May, the Light + Building team stated: "The health of all event participants, i.e. exhibitors and visitors, has the very highest priority for us. At the same time, we must take the earliest possible steps to ensure that all concerned incur no unnecessary costs. This was not an easy decision to take and we are now focusing all our efforts on ensuring that the next Light + Building in 2022 is a complete success."
GRE Alpha's Executive Director, Richard Fong was quick to respond: "Although we were looking forward to meeting our customers and presenting our newest innovations at the Light + Building Trade Fair, we support the postponement decision 100%. The health, safety and well-being of our employees, customers and partners has always been and will always be a number one priority for GRE Alpha."
2020 marked the 10th edition and 20th anniversary of the Light + Building Trade Fair. The theme of the fair was slated to be "Connecting, Pioneering, Fascinating." Here's hoping connected lighting and building services technology comes back just as strong as ever and Light + Building re-emerges as a beacon for the industry and a platform rich in the exchange of ideas.
