LuxLive 2017 goes digital

Europe’s biggest free annual lighting event comes to the ExCel Centre in November

Lighting is changing. Thanks to digital technology, it’s moving beyond illumination and creating exciting possibilities that were undreamt of a few years ago.

This revolution is transforming light fittings into smart devices that can monitor and control our environment. The lighting in our buildings and cities is set to form the backbone of a digital network that can engage and inform on an unprecedented scale.

To help get a grip on these bewildering possibilities, LuxLive 2017 is bringing together the exerts and the technology at ExCeL London on 15-16 November where visitors will be able to experience the digital future of lighting for themselves.

A new for addition to LuxLive 2017 is the Smart Spaces Conference, powered by Holophane, which focuses on connected outdoor lighting. This special programme is open to engineers and advisors, owners and operators of large lighting estates.

There will be four theatres, two arenas and six dedicated feature areas, each dedicated to a different aspect of lighting.

The heart of the show is the Gooee IoT Arena. This centrepiece stage and technology zone is where the digital future of lighting comes to life. Demonstrations, presentations, discussions and break-out talks will focus on connected lighting.

At a time of concern about building safety, the Escape Zone will focus on emergency lighting requirements and standards.

The lightspace arena – in association with Amerlux – will focus on the quality and design of light and feature two days on architectural lighting including debates and presentations.

Powered by Holophane, the Smart Spaces Campus focuses on connected outdoor lighting. Here you’ll see sophisticated lighting systems with advanced features such as environment monitoring, asset management, parking information, lamp and ballast failure reporting and integration with third party systems and software.

Wireless connectivity delivered by the visible light from LED lighting – known simply as LiFi – is creating a lot of excitement in technology circles. This breakthrough development could transform lighting into a backbone for information and free up congestion on traditional WiFi networks. You can see this technology in action at the Li-Fi Experience, where start-up companies in this exciting space will be demonstrating the tech.

The Lighting Industry Association’s Lighting Academy takes place every morning in theatres 6 and 7. And on the exhibition floor the LIA Zone will showcase the organisation’s many services for members.

For those involved in financing lighting companies, the Strategies in Light Investor Forum is where CEOs of innovative lighting companies unveil their market strategies.
