EIN HKTDC 400Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the twin lighting shows - the 21st Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) and the 4th Hong Kong International Outdoor & Tech Light Expo, staged from 27 to 30 October 2019 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and from 29 October to 1 November 2019 at the AsiaWorld-Expo respectively, are to anticipate a total of close to 3,100 exhibitors from around the world, forming the world’s largest lighting marketplace. In 2018, the two fairs attracted about 58,000 visitors.

Connected Living Embodied by Smart Lighting at Autumn Lighting Fair

An independent survey conducted in April during the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Spring Edition) this year showed 89% of respondents considered the outlook for smart lighting to be promising. Particularly, smart lighting systems that are designed for home automation, of all the applications, were expected to have the greatest growth potential in the coming two years.HKTDC 2 400

This notable trend has been fuelled by the rise of IoT(Internet of Things)-enabled lighting fixtures and connected technology that helps connect various lighting and home devices at a single platform to create a truly “connected living”. In response to this burgeoning business area, the “Smart Home Gallery” has been expanded and upgraded to become the zone of “Connected Living Smart Home” at Autumn Lighting Fair this year. Embracing and embodying futuristic living with smart lighting applications, this newly evolved zone will feature the latest smart home lighting products from such renowned global brands as Tuya, Tmall Genie AI Union Partner Jingxun Software and Bright Power Semiconductor, Strategic Partner of Baidu Intelligent Cloud-Broadlink, Opple, Panasonic and Philips.

Navigating by the Lights of Different Zones  

To make sourcing hassle-free, lighting products and solutions at the Autumn Lighting Fair are grouped by their properties, functions, and applications. The reputed Hall of Aurora, where creativity meets with high performance, is set to return to see the crème de la crème of the lighting world, as exemplified in the latest designs of such top global lighting brands as BJB, MEGAMAN, , Samsung, LEDUS, and WIZ. Also coming back is the Residential Lighting zone, which will gather worldwide functional and decorative domestic lighting products for a lighting glamour extravaganza.

The LED Lighting zone, which houses products that drive most of the innovations in the lighting industry, will continue to exhibit some of the most exciting and hottest LED lighting products on the market; whereas the Smart Lighting & Solutions zone will display the latest smart lighting designs, software, management systems and control panels.

The Outdoor & Tech Light Expo boasts a wide range of lighting equipment dedicated to commercial/industrial use, providing an efficient one-stop sourcing platform for buyers.

Catering to this market need, the Exterior Lighting Solutions & Systems zone this year will bring together the most updated specialised products for “Smart City Lighting”, as well as sophisticated lighting systems and solutions that are both energy-efficient and of high-performance.

Efficient Sourcing through Thematic Zones

The Horticultural Lighting zone, following its highly successful debut last year, returns to display the latest technology and the rapidly developing grow lights for agricultural estates and domestic gardens. Also presented in the zone are lighting products for outdoor garden and domestic landscaping.

The Technical & Professional Lighting zone will introduce lighting equipment for use in stadiums in addition to those that are used for warehouses and studios. The Outdoor & Public Lighting and Outdoor Advertising Lighting zones will exhibit lighting solutions for outdoor public spaces and promotional uses respectively.

Illuminating Conversations

Several events ranging from informative seminars and forums to networking receptions will be held during both fairs for visitors to learn about the newest technology and innovations, be apprised of the most recent market trends and to bond with buyers from around the globe. In the spotlights are the seminars on “connected living”, smart city, lighting design trends in public and interior spaces as well as testing and certification services.
