New date: Light + Building Autumn Edition 2022

LDS Light Building 400

Jan 10, 2022

As the pandemic situation continues to develop very dynamically, Messe Frankfurt is postponing the world’s leading trade fair for light and building technology to autumn 2022. Last December, intensive discussions with customers and cooperation partners had already led to the examination of alternatives to the original date in March. Now the new date has been set: Light + Building Autumn Edition will be held in Frankfurt am Main from 2 to 6 October 2022.

“We took the concerns of our partners very seriously and of course also weighed up the entrepreneurial opportunities and risks. As already announced in December, all options for a new date were under review. Fortunately, we managed to find an attractive autumn date and make it possible through internal rescheduling for Light + Building. This means that the prospect of a strong, international sector launch in Frankfurt in 2022 remains”, explains Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Messe Frankfurt. Last December, the high incidence in Germany followed by the international appearance of the Omicron variant and the associated travel restrictions had already led to uncertainty in the lighting, building and safety technology sector.

In the discussions, major parts of the industry confirmed the need for an international meeting place for the sector in Frankfurt this year. Chairman of the Electrical Installation Systems Division of the Electro and Digital Industry Association (ZVEI) of the Electro and Digital Industry Association (ZVEI), explained: “After the long break, the industry absolutely needs the new start to finally be able to present the many innovations in the future market of “sustainable building” – and to do so at the world’s most important platform of its kind, Light + Building. The new date from 2 to 6 October 2022 gives all participants sufficient planning time and enables personal exchange before the end of the year. We are already looking forward to seeing business customers and partners again and to a joint, successful autumn edition of Light + Building 2022 in Frankfurt.” This was also confirmed by Ingolf Jakobi, General Manager of the German Electrical and Electronic Trades Association (ZVEH): “Our industry is actively involved in the development of important future topics such as climate protection, digitalisation, electrification and energy efficiency. In all these areas, there are a multitude of innovations that we would like to present to our customers and introduce in personal discussions. For the e-trades, it is therefore essential that the fair, as the most important industry platform, takes place this year.” Dr. Jürgen Waldorf, Managing Director of the Lighting Division of the ZVEI, agrees: “Especially after the long break, it is important for the lighting industry to exchange ideas in person and to meet on the most important German and international platform.”

Light + Building Autumn Edition in October 2022

Light + Building is the most important international sector meeting for architects, industry, trade, commerce and planners. As an innovation forum and interdisciplinary marketplace, it is also a guarantor for business initiation, new contacts and knowledge transfer. With its holistic orientation, it focuses on current topics that contribute to sustainability issues.

For the Light + Building Autumn Edition, the hybrid concept remains the same. In addition to the international industry meeting place in Frankfurt, participation is possible via the Light + Building Digital Extension platform. At the Exhibition Centre from 2 to 6 October 2022, exhibitors will present a unique product spectrum for integrated building planning. All electricity-carrying trades are united here: from lighting and luminaire design, connected security and building automation to electrical installation systems, intelligent energy management and the suppliers of e-charging infrastructure.
