Global supplier of lighting technology, Tridonic, recently hosted a successful and well-attended event; ‘Making Light Work for Business, Buildings and People’. Held at the Business Design Centre in London, almost two hundred attendees joined Tridonic and a host of guest speakers to take advantage of the learning opportunities, keynote speeches and networking.
The event was a day of two halves, with the morning session focusing on the outdoors, ‘Light when and where it is needed”. The session addressed the infrastructure required to enable Smart Cities, including integrated outdoor lighting solutions and how smart street lighting is helping to unlock tomorrow’s cities. The morning concluded with thoughts on how to bring indoor and outdoor lighting together in one single integrated network, ready for the afternoon’s session focusing on the indoors and workspace management.
The afternoon session focussed on a number of the major challenges facing building owners and operators including Health and wellbeing, net-zero carbon and building compliance. The agenda brought a spotlight on Tridonic’s eco system of partners who all play a key role in delivering real business value, a true example of this being the exemplar case study shared on the DL/78 project in Charlotte Street.
The day coincided with the announcement from Tridonic that they are the first company in the electronics sector globally to be Cradle to Cradle Certified.
Keynote addresses were delivered by key industry figures throughout the course of the day including Dr Shelley James, Consultant, Curator and WELL Advisor; Tom Spilsted of Construo; Stephen Jackson of Casambi; Richard Perry of Lucy Zodian and Alison Gallagher from Arup. Richard Strode, Simon Blazey and Johann Hofer from the senior team of Tridonic led the event with talks from Markus Wagenseil, Matt Caygill and Martin Thompson from the wider Tridonic team also.
Adding to the appeal of the day, a ‘Partner’s Marketplace’ was set up as the centralised networking area. This offered attendees the opportunity to preview solutions and services that could benefit their work. Partners included Binary Forge, Casambi, Construo, Holders Technology, and Lucy Zodian, who all had space within the marketplace. An area which strongly demonstrated how the eco system of partners collaborate to ensure success not only historically, but also as we move forward with an ever-changing landscape.
A session was held prior to the opening of the event for the media, to offer a preview into the Tridonic Building Asset 360 solution. The event concluded with an open panel discussion, allowing attendees the opportunity to ask questions to the panel of speakers.
Richard Strode, Managing Director of Tridonic UK said: “The Making Light Work event was a great success, with an impressive number of attendees and incredibly positive feedback. We are very appreciative to all of our speakers who gave compelling keynote addresses, covering a range of expert topics. We also extend sincere thanks to our eco system of partners, who contribute to our continued success”
Simon Blazey, Strategic Solutions Sales Manager of Tridonic UK, added: “Seeing so many peers from across the industry was fantastic. The event was so beneficial for attendees, from learning about new solutions to listening to expert talks, everyone took something away from the day. We’re looking forward to organising more events in the future.”
For those who were unable to attend the day in person, Tridonic are currently putting together a webinar which will encompass all of the key insights and takeaways from the event.
