Light Middle East 2019

October 15-17, 2019

Market Intelligence Solutions provider, 6W research forecast the Middle East smart lighting and home and building automation markets to grow to US$2.2 billion and US$3.3 billion in 2025, respectively, and the 14th edition of Light Middle East has expanded its exhibitor segments to cater for the burgeoning industries.

Featuring 311 exhibitors from 32 countries, the six dedicated segments cover LED lighting (42 percent of exhibitors), decorative lighting and accessories, home and building automation, electrical and electronic components and accessories for lighting systems; electric lamps; and technical lighting and accessories.

Elsewhere, the THINKLIGHT Conference will host more than 50 speakers from 13 nations across three days of themed tracks: ‘Professional Lighting Design & Architecture Forum’, ‘IoT & Intelligent Lighting Forum’ and the ‘Integrated Buildings Tech Forum’.

The annual ‘Ready, Steady, Light’ competition will see professional lighting teams contest three categories - ‘Most Creative Effect’, ‘Best Technical Solution’, and ‘Peer Prize’ - under strict judging conditions. Winners will be announced during the 2019 Light Middle East Awards, which take place on 17 October at Atlantis, The Palm.

Light.ication, in association with Light.Func, promotes lighting design through education and will host international teams creating bespoke lighting designs. All design installations will be linked to a world map displayed on an interactive LED screen.

Light.Func Designer Director and Founder, Sakina Dugawalla-Moeller, said: “Light.ication is about teaching, mentoring and raising awareness of the importance of lighting. What happens is seasoned “light.icators” use their past experiences to inform the variety, the mosaic of what we see in the installations.”
