Start-up Lighting Business Centre on schedule

Utrecht, The Netherlands – Since announcing its intentions early this year, the Lighting Business Centre has drawn the attention of many lighting manufacturers worldwide. They all are triggered by the concept, which is all about bringing lighting manufacturers and lighting professionals closer together. The new centre – to be set up in the heart of The Netherlands – provides lighting manufacturers the opportunity to bring their product range to the attention of lighting designers, architects, distributors, system integrators, specifiers and installers very effectively. All from a showroom varying from 25, 45 up to 65 m2.

Why this concept?
The LBC is going to make the search of the right lighting products for lighting professionals easier. It enables them to take their time and find products from over 100 manufacturers under one roof, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year. They can examine and test fittings, and assess their appearance, at their own speed in a relaxed atmosphere. They can use computer-operated control panels to start a demonstration show or simply operate the spotlight of their choice. At the same time, a linked system will provide them with product information or enable them to make direct contact with the manufacturer. And once they have found the right product, they will then have a quiet workplace in which to immediately integrate it into their design. 

LBC as a centre of expertise
Besides becoming an independent platform that brings together supply and demand, the LBC wants to be a centre of expertise that contributes to a further professionalising of the lighting industry. It will be a meeting point for visitors who are looking for product information and inspiration. But you could also regard it as a meeting point for conferences, demonstrations, seminars, workshops and lectures by manufacturers or by interest groups. In this way, everyone in the industry will become part of the LBC!

Where and when?
The LBC will open its doors at the beginning of 2012. Currently the LBC has three locations to choose from all located in the centre of The Netherlands. It will be a building with a modern but rustic and intimate appearance in which visitors feel at home as soon as they enter. One that does justice to the professional brand experience of the exhibiting manufacturer.

The pre-registration has already started. Lighting manufacturers who want to participate in the Lighting Business Center can contact the LBC at +31 (0)346 764000 or via
