The 7th annual LED professional Symposium +Expo will be taking place from September 26th to 28th. Every year renowned speakers and experts from the areas of research and the lighting industry meet in Bregenz, Austria for a three-day symposium and exhibition where the newest lighting technologies and innovations are presented and discussed. The symposium is comprised of a series of lectures, workshops, forums and discussion panels while the exhibition is filled with the newest technologies components and developments presented by international companies and organizations. The LpS focuses on an expert audience from the areas of Design & Engineering, Quality Assurance, Technical Management and authorities from the international lighting industry.

Digitalization, communication and new lifestyles change the way we deal with light. These changes necessitate adaptations and improvements to existing light systems and lighting solutions. Completely new concepts are needed due to the rapid developments of LED and OLED technologies and altered implementation profiles. Trends in Lighting is a forum for architects, interior designers, light planners, lighting designers and IT/IoT system integrators, that looks at the newest trends in the lighting industry and takes place parallel to the LpS. Next to the forum the TiL expo, which will be in the Foyer of the Bregenz Opera House, will be presenting highly innovative lighting systems, luminaries, lamps, control systems and fixtures. The motto of TiL 2017 is “Smart Trends in Indoor Lighting – from HCL to Luminaries to Internet of Things”.
