On the show's growing significance worldwide, Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manger of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Ltd., commented at a press conference held earlier: “The outlook for the lighting and LED industry is promising. Technologies are not only growing smarter, but also becoming more multidimensional and sustainable. Falling in sync with industry development is the fair's 2015 slogan: “20th Onwards – Inspired & Be Inspired”. It represents our continued commitment to encourage experts to share information and transform the industry. For example, a complete range of organized information sessions at the fair will facilitate networking to assist professionals in their pursuit for brighter business opportunities.”

Top Brands to Attend
Generally recognized as being at the forefront of the industry, the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition has consistently presented the latest trends in lighting, with participants typically agreeing with the event being very productive. Nearly 2,000 domestic and international brands in the lighting and LED business will show up to display the latest innovations this year, to occupy an estimated 225,000 square meters. The expected turnout reflects exhibitors' steadfast confidence in promising market outlook in China.

  • Lighting applications, accessories and electronic components:

Sean Zhou, Asia Marketing Director of Philips Lumileds, noted: “For us, the China market is very critical to our business success. China is the manufacturing base of the lighting industry and there is unmatched consumption of LED technology from domestic manufacturers. The Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition is the biggest lighting show in the region, so it is very important for us to leverage this platform to deliver our brand message to both local and overseas manufacturing firms. Visitor attendance and quality were well within our expectations for the 2014 show. There were many customers visiting our booth for meetings and dialogue about emerging industry trends.”

Also optimistic about China's lighting market and industry both being on an upward trajectory is Steve Ho, Lighting Product Director of Macroblock Inc, who said: "Brightness is no longer the sole focus in the LED industry. There are boundless expansion possibilities and the future of the industry will concentrate on the enhancement of quality, with intelligent lighting being significant evidence of that.”

Andy Man, Vice President of Sales – Die Business of Bridgelux Inc, echoed the optimism by saying: “We expect the LED lighting to exhibit continuously strong growth in 2015. Industry players will need to leverage technology to win in the increasingly competitive market.”
