LIGHTING DAYS: 2019 edition bearing the energy and digital transition standard

As France’s benchmark event in the lights, lighting and LED technology market sectors, the coming edition of the Lighting Days exhibition on 13th-15th February, 2019 can already count on almost 50 exhibitors and brands being present out of the hundred or so expected. The sector’s trade organizations are gearing up for the event through partnerships with the likes of lighting syndicate “Syndicat de l’Eclairage”, lighting designers and engineers association “Association desConcepteurs lumière et Eclairagistes” (ACE), and the Smart Lighting Alliance (SLA). All these point to an edition full of promise for this new exhibition formula teaming up with BePOSITIVE, the exhibition on the energy and digital transition in buildings and regions.

With themes like energy savings, IoT, urban planning, smart lighting, smart building, and of course the smart city, it’s natural for these two events to converge given their complementary interests.

Alongside the exhibition, the 10th edition of ForumLED Europe is being held. Its conference schedule, drawn up in
conjunction with a scientific committee, will place LED technology at the core of some high quality debates.

Lights and lighting stakeholders at the gathering

New format, new dates, new venue, the 2019 edition of Lighting Days is set to be a unifying influence. Its 100 exhibitors and brands will be showing off solutions in the fields of Lighting for Cities, Lighting for Buildings and LED Technology. Key players from the sector are among the first to have booked their stands, including Citel, Fonroche, GE Lighting, Kawantech, Qualitron, Ragni, Vestel, and more. (Consult the latest list of confirmed exhibitors)

4,000 professional visitors are expected—lighting and LED professionals, local authorities, specifiers and influencers, electrical contractors, project owners and contractors—not counting all those who will be popping in from BePOSITIVE.


The synergy between the two exhibitions will be an opportunity for attending lighting and building professionals, manufacturers, and local authorities to gain a great overview of the main trends in tomorrow’s towns and buildings:

• Technological new features ranging from electronic components to lighting sources and their applications
• Innovative products and solutions: IoT, Lifi, digital applications
• Smart Lighting: how lighting is revolutionizing towns, office buildings, apartment blocks and houses
• The whole of the LED technology ecosystem


ForumLED Europe: the place of genuine LED expertise
