In early-June, GILE 2017 will take place at China Import and Export Fair Complex, focusing on lighting market shifts and trends

The 22nd edition of the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE), the most influential and comprehensive lighting and LED event in Asia, is set to take place from 9 to 12 June at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, China.

The four-day event will welcome more than 2,300 exhibitors from over 20 countries and regions and span 17 halls covering 175,000 sq.m. of exhibition space. Visitors to the show can expect to source from an extensive range of lighting and LED technology-related products as well as lighting accessories, electronic components and more.

In the coming exhibition, this year’s focus will address market shifts and trends. “The shifts in the lighting industry have led to the convergence of distinct technologies, industries and devices. Born from these changes are new products, design ideas and increased connectivity. The 2017 fair aims to facilitate industry convergence and help businesses in lighting to discover fruitful opportunities from both within and outside of traditional industry realms,” says Lucia Wong, deputy general manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd.

In an era where LED is dominating, lighting has capabilities that are greater than basic on-and-off and dimming functions. The totality of lighting has moved beyond the scope of illumination and the industry is witnessing the creation of a future that converges different sectors and elements that revolve around human well-being.

The GILE 2017 will run concurrently with Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology. Both are a part of Messe Frankfurt's building and energy shows, headed by the biennial Light + Building event which will take place from 18 to 23 March 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany.
