The recent Thailand Lighting Fair was held concurrently with the Thailand Building Fair and Secutech Thailand November 8-10 at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre and was organized by Messe Frankfurt. Collectively, the three shows featured 300 exhibitors from 18 countries and regions and welcomed 10,270 visitors over the three-day fair period.
With the theme of lighting solutions that are Smart, Sustainable, and Human-Centric, the 2018 edition of the Thailand Lighting Fair boasted exhibitors featuring lighting that integrated network connectivity and intelligence as well as applications that promoted energy efficiency and luminance.
The three shows offered a comprehensive platform of smart and green building technologies that enhance the relationship between the sectors. Attendees were able to discover overlapping business opportunities within the building ecosystem and learn about sustainable city developments in the ASEAN region.
Hubert Duh, Chairman & Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd., notes, “The 2018 edition of Thailand Lighting Fair witnessed another successful gathering of the lighting community as exhibitors and visitors from Thailand and around the world made their way to Bangkok. We are grateful to those who continue to place their trust in us as the organizer and we were delighted to see the comprehensive range of products, technologies, and solutions showcased during the three-day show. Messe Frankfurt will continue to devote itself to growing its presence and creating business connections that serve the ASEAN market.”
Observes exhibitor Ken Sayker, Sales Director for Asia Pacific, Graesslin, GmbH, “We have received a surprising amount of interest from buyers who originate outside of Thailand, which is great as it means that the fair is able to attract quality buyers from overseas. We are targeting system integrators and facility managers and we have managed to meet these kinds of buyers during the show. We wanted to make a greater effort in branching out into markets like Thailand so participating in the fair provided us with an ideal opportunity.”
Adds Forrest Gan, Asia Pacific Sales Manager for HDL Automation, “By integrating Thailand Lighting Fair, Thailand Building Fair, and Secutech Thailand into concurrently held shows, it allowed us to meet more potential clients as there is a lot of crossover between these industries. We have managed to meet a number of distributors and system integrators who have a good understanding of our products and of the market in Thailand and Asia.”
Thailand Lighting Fair is a part of Messe Frankfurt’s Light + Building Technology fairs headed by the biennial Light + Building event held in Frankfurt, Germany, every two years. The next edition of Light + Building will take place March 8-13, 2020.
