AUSTRIA – The week of October 7 saw the co-hosted LED professional Symposium +Expo (LpS) and Trends in Lighting Forum &Show (TiL) returned to Bregenz. These two international conference and exhibition events have been carefully designed over the last 8 years to form a complete ‘insight circle’ in lighting: encompassing science, research and development, technologies, design, planning and lighting applications.
Today, all the complex, interlocking factors must be understood and considered when creating modern lighting systems for them to have relevance and longevity in the new, complex and ever changing market place. To enable the lighting industry to meet new challenges and thrive in the new market place, LpS 2018 and TiL 2018 acted as a catalyst for positive change in the lighting industry by making available, to its attendees, 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 well being.
The combined 3 day events were a forum; a place to share, learn and exchange ideas across disciplines and even sectors. Part of this forum was press a conference, allowing representatives of the multiple facets of lighting to share their opinions on what we can expect from the industry in 2019 and beyond.
