Light + Building 2014 reports record visitor figures

7 April 2014 12.00 BST

(Germany) - Over 211,000 trade visitors attend biennial lighting exhibition.

Messe Frankfurt, organisers of the biennial Light + Building exhibition, reported a record number of visitors to this year’s show – despite fears that a strike by Lufthansa airlines might cause some to stay away.

During the six days of the fair, 211,500 trade visitors (up from 195,582 in 2012) from 161 countries came to Frankfurt to find out about the latest innovations and solutions of the manufacturers taking part, an increase of eight percentage points. At the same time, the level of visitor internationality rose by three percentage points to 47 percent meaning that almost one in two visitors came from abroad. The best represented visitor nations after Germany were Italy, the Netherlands, France, China and Austria. There were also significant increases from numerous expanding markets, such as Russia, South Africa, Mexico, Turkey and Indonesia. Particularly striking was the return of visitors from South Europe with high double-digit rates of growth characterising visitor numbers not only from Spain and Portugal but also Greece.

With 2,458 exhibitors, an increase of seven percent over the previous event, as well as an increase of four percent in the area occupied by the fair, Light + Building 2014 set new records in all relevant areas.

“Light+Building is in a class of its own when it comes to lighting, light design and the future-oriented field of building and energy management,” commented Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Messe Frankfurt. “Over the last six days, manufacturers have demonstrated the great energy-saving potential offered by the use of innovative, market-ready technologies.”

The next Light + Building will be held from 13 to 18 March 2016.

There will be a comprehensive review of Light + Building 2014 in the next issue of mono*arc magazine.
