LpS 2018 Tackles the Disruption to the Lighting Industry Head-on with 5 Key Focal Points

The 8th international LED professional Symposium +Expo (LpS 2018) will take place from 25 to 27 September in Bregenz, Austria. LpS continues to be aimed at technology experts from industry and research, as well as those who are curious about the latest developments in lighting technology. The carefully curated program for LpS2018, together with the co-hosted TiL2018, now forms a comprehensive overview of the current developments, hurdles and solutions for the disrupted and ever changing world of lighting.

“It is not easy to describe the current situation in the lighting domain, as there are so many different perspectives. Essentially, however, we can all agree that we are in a state of flux, change and disruption. We are looking at a future none of us can confidently create a roadmap for. We see the solution for the disruption of lighting as progression and innovation with light. This requires an understanding of technology, users and the applications. Only when all sides are understood and considered can valuable new solutions truly be created with, and in, light. We want LpS2018 to be the place that enables this process to really begin.”  Siegfried Luger, Event Director.

LpS will bring together the greatest minds in lighting to tackle this year’s key 5 topics of Strategies & Technologies, Digitization, Human Centric Lighting, Quality Engineering and Technologies in Applications. There will be over 100 specialist lectures, workshops, and panel debates that will be enjoyed by more than 1,600 visitors, who will come together to discuss, debate, design and develop the “Lighting Technologies of Tomorrow”.

Joining LpS2018 to share their latest findings will be international leaders from Licht Kunst Licht, Tridonic, Toshiba, Seoul Semiconductor, OSRAM, Bartenbach, Signify, The Zhaga Consortium, Lumileds, Silvair, Future Lighting Solutions and many, many more.

The extensive conference program encompasses strategies and markets, engineering and design, testing and applications, and covers the central building blocks of lighting systems from the component or materials right the way through to the application. The design questions concern topics such as reliability, costs and issues around the production of modern lighting systems.

The workshop program has also been extended to allow our delegates to have a real hands-on experience. Delegates can encounter the latest technologies, explore creative thinking, problem solving, and ask questions and work alongside new and interesting people. The workshops and demonstration sessions will inspire you to think bigger, achieve greater things and to be better prepared for the uncertain, but exciting, future of lighting.

The lighting events in 2018 are in partnership with Seoul Semiconductor, TRILUX and Bluetooth SIG.

LpS 2018 will take place simultaneously with the second Trends in Lighting. TiL is the unique, international “Innovation in Light” event, that is dedicated to bridging the gap between technologies and applications. The aim of TiL is to be the “incubator in light” for ideas, processing, optimizations and applications of lighting technologies. www.TiL2018.com
