THINKLIGHT: Envisage The Next Move
Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition’s concurrent event programme once again returns to bring some of the most influential lighting industry experts to the heart of the show. Designed to highlight and provide insight into some of the most pressing issues facing the lighting community, this year’s programme will encourage debate and collaborative thinking via a series of panel discussions held on the main Pearl Promenade stage.
These panel discussions will gather leading domestic and international experts and thoughtleaders stage to discuss what is next for the lighting industry. Whether it’s the exciting possiblities of a new era of AIoT and 5G or to evolving digital technologies that allow us to reinvent the ways in which lighting is designed, installed and perceived, the discussion panels will be insightful and not to be missed.
Two parallel sessions in the main halls will facilitate discussion about possible directions that industry players may take over the coming years. The “Leap Forwardˮ session will examine technological innovations like micro LEDs, UV, IR and LiFi, new materials and applications as well as insights into the fast-approaching 5G era.
The second parallel session “Back to Basics. Illuminate Ingenuityˮ is designed to encourage the lighting industry to not neglect its core purpose ‒ effective and inspiring illumination. Aspects such as human-centric lighting and high-quality colour consistency and rendering will take priority in order to maintain and cultivate new standards of excellence.
Looking ahead to GILE 2019, Ms Wong added: “A new era, a new lifestyle and new lighting – this concept injects new vitality to the industry. By envisaging the next move of the lighting community together, it is hoped that we can all embrace this renewed energy, take a moment to consider lighting and provide new value for illumination. GILE will strive to work together with the lighting industry to produce better lighting and consequently a better life for its users.ˮ
