The 9th edition of HKTDC Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Spring Edition) will be staged on April 6 through 9, 2017 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, with around 1,300 exhibitors from all over the world having already prepared to together offer global buyers a one-stop sourcing platform for all finished products, parts and components.

LED Lighting and Smart Technology Remain Buzzwords
At this year's HKTDC Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Spring Edition), LED lighting and related applications of smart technology will likely continue to take central stage after years of being buzzwords in the industry.

Findings in a survey conducted by HKTDC Research on prospects for the lighting market at the end of 2016 showed that LED and related green lighting products (as chosen by 40% of respondents) continue to be viewed as the category with highest growth potential in 2017.

In terms of LED product applications, respondents believed that indoor household lighting (32%) and smart lighting systems (21%) will see the largest increase in the coming two years. As regards to future development, the majority of the respondents (84%) indicated that smart technology will drive the evolution of the lighting industry over the next two years.

Thematic Zones Arranged for Easy Sourcing
With energy efficiency being one of the significant trends in the global lighting industry, the “LED & Green Lighting” zone will remain the highlighted zone among others at the show, to feature both functional and decorative LEDs and Green Lighting products.

The lighting industry is actively developing smart lighting technologies and products in response to the development of “smart city and smart home” driven by the Internet of Things. In order to cater market demand, the inaugural “Smart Lighting & Solutions” zone will be set up this year, to showcase state-of-the-art lighting systems, remote control and smart lighting products. Furthermore, the inaugural “Startup Zone” is designed for young designers and startup to showcase their original ideas and new concepts, as well as to communicate with global industry players.

Another highlighted zone, Hall of Aurora, will provide an elegant and extraordinary setting for top-notch branded collections of lighting fixtures. Interior designers and architects, as well as fashion-forward retailers can find high quality and trendy lighting products in the zone. Leading brands taking part in the zone will include Viribright, Forest Lighting, Jaykal, SKY-LIGHTING and many more.

The “Avenue of Chandeliers,” a zone established to spotlight glittering and splendid chandelier collections, will serve as a traffic stopper to interior decorators and stylists, also contractors outfitting hotels, restaurants, shopping malls and other development, given that chandeliers in both modern and traditional styles are experiencing a fashion resurgence. And “World of Professional & Industrial Lighting” will cover a broad range of situation-specific lighting, including lighting for warehousing, stadiums and other commercial purposes, safety lighting and emergency lighting. Other product zones on the fairground will include “Advertising Display Lighting”, “Commercial Lighting”, “Outdoor Lighting” and “Lighting Accessories, Parts & Components”.
