New dates of 10-13 October for Guangzhou Light + Building fairs
Due to a more favourable date becoming available at the fairs' venue, the organiser of Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE) and Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology (GEBT) has announced the two shows will now take place from 10 – 13 October. An expected 2,000-plus exhibitors will take part in the two fairs spanning 19 halls at the China Import and Export Fair Complex.
     Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained: "As some of the most influential exhibitions in the industry, we are committed to providing the best conditions for industry peers to facilitate face-to-face, in-depth communication. As such, with a new time slot becoming available at the fairground which will allow more people to attend, we made the decision to move the fairs to this later date. As China continues its rebound from the pandemic, and its economic and exhibition business recovery gains momentum, we are confident about the shows' success with these new dates.”
     The industry is facing a new digital era, as people's living styles become smarter and more sustainable. The 'smart city' concept, 5G and AIoT are all elements that are driving the lighting industry forward with new concepts of light, new business models and technologies, as well as new challenges. The opportunities presented by these changes are encouraging the industry to further explore the additional value added by lighting, and to continue the technological and design innovation. Commenting on the development of GILE, Ms Wong, said: "Consumers' changing lifestyles in 2020 and the fair's 25th anniversary give special meaning to this year’s event. Apart from providing a platform for trade and communication for the lighting industry, we hope GILE can also contribute a sense of positivity to motivate businesses to innovate, upgrade and transform. At the same time, we also want to encourage industry peers to consider the essence of lighting quality and craftsmanship in their production. In our 25th year, GILE will continue to serve the industry as a key networking platform, and move forward together with lighting businesses.”
