Join the party at LuxLive Middle East!

A major networking party for lighting professionals, clients and suppliers has been announced as part of next week’s packed LuxLive Middle East programme.

Taking place in the Lux Arena on the floor of the show on Wednesday 13 April at 6pm, the Lux Networking Reception is open to all, giving you a unique opportunity to meet with leading lighting professionals including designers and engineers as well as end users and architects to exchange ideas and discuss the issues, challenges and opportunities in the market.

Sponsored by leading architectural manufacturer Fagerhult, the party is just one of many exciting events, talks, debates and seminars taking place when the industry gathers at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

‘I look forward to welcoming everyone to the party,’ says organiser Peter Rowledge. ‘Technology and innovation are the lifeblood of the lighting industry but it’s people who make projects happen. That’s why it’s great we’ll have the whole supply chain in one place.’

The two-day LuxLive Middle East 2016 exhibition and conference features over 50 big-name brands – including iGuzzini, Erco, Trilux, Schreder, Lumenpulse, Fagerhult, Lutron, Leviton, Regent, Tridonic and Cree – and a comprehensive educational programme with talks, presentations and live debates across two arenas. 

The event includes a glittering free-to-attend awards event which celebrates and rewards excellence in lighting design.

Some 3,000 specifiers, contractors and clients from across the GCC are expected to descend on the state-of-the-art Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre on Wednesday 13 April and Thursday 14 April for LuxLive. 

Products on show include the famous Coelux artificial skylight which has been featured in the New York Times, the Daily Mail and Wired magazine. It mimics natural light to make you believe you’re under a bright sunny day and with nanotechnology, it even recreates the scattering that turns the sky blue.

Globally recognised speakers at the event include lighting designers Sally Storey, Michael Grubb and Courtney Mark, Architect Ashutosh Jha of MSCEB will present on how to handle daylight to cut energy, create great space and achieve onerous building codes. Etihad Energy Services CEO Stephane le Gentil will give a keynote presentation at how his organisation is helping industry and government execute major LED lighting retrofits involving thousands of luminaires. LuxLive Middle East will be opened by His Excellency Eng. Suhail Mohamed Faraj Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy.
