The Power of Infinity: Evolution of Light +

In the era of “Light +”, the lighting industry will develop to encompass more and more new applications. “Infinity” therefore aptly represents the future roadmap of the industry, helping to inject cities with lighting that improves people’s living and working conditions and provides entertainment for residents and tourists alike.

The infinite applications of light include AIoT, optical communication, big data, healthcare, cosmetics, lifestyle, low carbon and new energy solutions, aquaculture, new media arts, extended reality and much more. To better represent the wide range of new applications for lighting, the show will present eight concepts, each corresponding to a letter in the word “Infinity”.

Participants' comments

While I have personally visited the fair many times in the past, for Warom Lighting this is our first time attending GILE and the first time exhibiting at a trade fair. By participating, we hope to expand the influence of our brand within the lighting industry alongside our regional partners. Overall, I am satisfied with the flow of people this year and will continue to participate at the fair next year.

GILE is a professional and highly influential trade fair for the lighting industry and it allows us to showcase our latest products. By coming to the show, we are able to meet our target customers and promote our brand. Despite the dynamic movement of the pandemic, I didn’t witness a big disruption in participation.

Our goal at GILE is to connect with domestic lighting developers and manufacturers. Overall, we are very pleased with the number of visitors this year. With the increasing demand for smart lighting, our development focus is on connectivity. Our block terminals and connections are all Zhaga compliant and we believe the standard will be gradually introduced into China in the future. GILE has always been one of the most influential business platforms for the lighting industry within the region and with that said, we will return next year.

I have been visiting GILE for many years and during this time I have witnessed the continuous innovation and development of the fair. This year, even on the first morning I have already connected with a number of exhibitors and I will further follow up with them afterwards. Every year at GILE, I learn more about marketing trends and the latest industry advancements, which helps me to generate more ideas and determine the strategy for our business. That’s why I keep coming back, and I look forward to the show getting better and better.

This is my second visit to GILE. As I see it, the fair is an annual meeting point for the lighting industry. By participating, we get to witness how much progress companies have made, which affirms the future of the industry. So far, I have already met a number of good quality suppliers and I will closely follow up with each and every one of them afterwards.
