Following our event-filled visit to LuxLive 2017, we here at Sparks are thrilled to see LuxLive 2018 on the horizon, coming up this November (we registered to go, by the way).
One of Europe’s grandest annual lighting events, exhibiting companies will include some of the biggest names in the lighting industry, including a Sparks favourite and mainstay – Astro Lighting.
Sparks of course has a vested interest in visiting this event; it is the prime location to discover new innovations and to see how leading companies are driving changes in the industry.
We can save an invaluable amount of time by visiting: all of the best lighting suppliers and manufacturers will be under the same roof for two days – prime time for a bit of networking!
There are too many interesting events going on for us to take all in one go, as demonstrated by our 2017 visit. There will be speeches, conferences, exhibitions and the grand Lux Awards (won of course by Astro in 2017).
Exhibits at LuxLive 2018 we are most excited to visit
While Astro is a firm favourite of Sparks, they won’t be the only exhibitors we deal with professionally. There is the Gooee’s award-winning Aurora as well, an IoT Enterprise Ecosystem, who sell fantastic products such as the Aluminium IP68 Fixed Halogen Walkover Light, as well as a host of inspiring garden lights.
Yet another Sparks favourite will be making an appearance: Lutron, a Silver sponsor of Property Technology Live. Lutron has long been a leading provider of wireless lighting solutions that tackle large-scale problems. This includes the pioneering Lutron Grafik Eye QS 3-Zone, an ingenious energy-saving solution for construction and renovation projects.
We sincerely hope there will be time to visit all of our friends, including Rako Controls, who will be unveiling their new RAK8, a product we are extremely excited about. The same size as the standard RAK4, the RAK8 has 8 outputs and can be fitted with any combination of different plug-in modules to suit a variety of loads.
Also exhibiting their wares is the esteemed Italian company Fabbian who are internationally known for their vogue lamp designs, such as the Fabbian Bijou Chrome Flexible Tube. If we’re talking about innovators, then Fabbian are one of the many companies we’ll be keen to get the latest on.
Another exhibitor on our list to visit is Wago, an essential, if less glamorous name in the lighting world. They have provided us with such wonderful necessities such as the Wagobox 51257303, an unsung hero in the electrical installation world.
Turning our attention to our eco-friendly responsibilities, Teucer will also be in town. Teucer has long offered one of the most comprehensive ranges of LED strips, drivers, profiles and accessories.
They are also introducing the new ‘SkyLux’, which offers smart artificial daylight for areas lacking in natural light, and we’ll be chomping at the bit to check that out.
Taking in all LuxLive 2018 has to offer
LuxLive 2018 is the place to go if you wish to discover all the new breakthroughs in design and lighting: the best place to contemplate the future of illumination.
Although Sparks has a vested interest in home lighting, there will be a slew of conferences regarding lighting in other areas: talks on lighting for museums and galleries, transport and infrastructure and lighting for safer city streets.
With over 50% more senior decision makers already registered to attend, this will be one of the most educational experiences about the lighting industry.
We are looking forward, for instance, to hear from the ‘Escape Zone’ conference, about the importance of emergency lighting and carrying out risk assessments.
Who knows if we at Sparks will be able to see everything we wish to at LuxLive 2018 (probably not, going on last years evidence). However one thing is for sure: we will be delighted to participate in one of the largest and most prestigious lighting conferences in the world!
