LpS 2019 - Europe’s Foremost Lighting Technology Conference | 24-26 SEPT, BREGENZ

Trends setting lighting event with international key lectures and forefront exhibitors.

The 9th international LED professional Symposium +Expo (LpS 2019) will take place from 24 to 26 September in the Opera House Bregenz, Austria. Its ambition is to nurture, support and drive the continued development in, and around, the lighting industry to enable its sustainable future. LpS 2019 will deliver an event that is a catalyst for positive change in the lighting industry. It will do this by making available to its attendees an in-depth diverse and vital 360-degree prospective of lighting and what drives, informs and affects it, from the smallest nanotechnologies to the global problems surrounding human wellbeing.  The event is designed to be a forum; a place to share, learn and exchange ideas across disciplines and even sectors.

By bringing together over 1700 experts from around the world, LpS 2019 offers its attendees the opportunity to explore and to learn more about technology. With the co-hosted Trends in Lighting and DALI SUMMIT, the combined event program offers delegates the chance to really explore lighting, its impact and potential. Exploring a topic that will resonate throughout the 2019 event will be the Keynote from Trilux, who during these uncertain times in lighting discusses “The Changes in Lighting”

International Excellence: Delegates will also hear from Deidre Wolff from IREC, Spain, on “When Circular Economy Meets the Lighting Industry (LCA)”, Dr. Thomasz Zareba from Zumtobel, Austria, on “LIFI Technology”, Patrick Durand from Future Electronics, Canada, teaches how to “Monetise the Cloud For Lighting Control” and Menno Schakel of Nichia, Japan shares insights on “LED innovations For The Improvement of  HCL Luminaries”.

Hands-on workshops: Experience-led learning is celebrated as the delegates can get hands-on in several in-depth and varied workshops throughout the event. This year LpS welcomes multiple industry experts sharing their expertise across varied subjects including: “Inside the Pyramids -Light Where There Should Be Darkness” by Professor Ruairi O’Brien, “Intertwining Daylight and Light Design”, by Isabel Villar and Maha Shalaby, “Setting Up A Robust Lighting Control System with Bluetooth Mesh” by Silvair, and “Experience How New LED Technologies Raise The Bar in Human Centric Lighting” by Giovanni Vecchio.

Celebrating the complete spectrum of light: The awards return this year, bigger and more exciting than before. LpS has increased the awards categories for exhibitors to celebrate the complete spectrum of light. The seven Awards will be presented at a stunning ceremony dinner in Lindau on September 25th.  They are given for cutting edge technologies with the strongest impact on lighting, applications and sustainability.

More than 100 exhibitors will show the latest systems, products, equipment and services in the LpS 2019 exhibition during the three event days.
