Smart Lighting Co-Locates with the Global Smart City Event and Smart Sensing

The premier and 5th global networking conference & business expo for human centered & connected lighting business, technology & application development is co-located with the largest global smart city event - Metropolitan Solutions - with 5.000-6.000 visitors at executive level. Furthermore it is co-located with Smart Sensing 2015, towards connected intelligence.

The lighting industry is in a phase of transformation, in a mode of re-inventing itself. The future success of lighting will demand involvement of stakeholders and stakeholder communities from the extended lighting value chain. Enabled through the emergence of digital light sources, and based on semi-conductor technology and information and communication technology, new business models will emerge: creating lighting as a service. Light when and where needed!

Smart Lighting 2015 Conference
A pre-competitive industry driven platform on connected lighting combining the interests of stakeholders from the lighting industry, the semiconductor industry and the ICT industry. Key objective is to promote new connected and human centric lighting systems, solutions & services and to develop new business models based upon this new technology. Activation of the extended lighting value chain demands a close collaboration and alignment of all stakeholders. The event takes a strategic view on developments, barriers and opportunities beyond the benefits of energy reduction through LEDification and towards DIGItigation Smart Lighting 2015 is the right and global event to meet your new partners! Mark the dates in your calendar and join us in Berlin, May 20 & 21, 2015.
