In October I visited the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Autumn Edition) and the associated World of Outdoor Lighting and Lighting Accessories (WOLLA) as a guest of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council. Together, these events attracted more than 73,000 buyers from around the world. For the fairs as a whole, double- digit percentage growth in buyer numbers was recorded in developed markets such as the United States, the United Kingdom and France. Buyers from emerging markets were also very active: double-digit percentage growth in buyer numbers was also recorded for India, the United Arab Emirates as well as ASEAN countries including Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines. The Autumn Lighting Fair has long been a major event for the global lighting industry. It has grown so much that to give the fair more room for development, the WOLLA was held first time at AsiaWorld-Expo. The two events welcomed a total of 2,727 exhibitors from 35 countries and regions, forming what is probably the world’s largest lighting marketplace. It is amazing the difference a year makes in the development of LED luminaires. The quality end of the market was displaying luminaires that were not only effective in achieving their desired lighting results but were also stylish and attractive in their own right. The luminaires were purpose- designed for LEDs rather that being adaptations of existing (traditional source) luminaires. Glare was being well-controlled without making every luminaire a narrow-beam downlight. “Smart Lighting” was appearing as real products and for example, Neonlite (Megaman), r showcased its INGENIUM BLU series that employs Bluetooth 4.1 technology and the INGENIUM ZB series that uses ZigBee technology; both series are capable of controlling light intensity through smart phone apps. As usual, the fair had an excellent program of themed talks, with The Internet of Things: Lighting’s Next Revolution attracting not only an overflow crowd but also lively discussion in the concluding panel session. I got into the act presenting a paper at the China Lighting Designer Association’s half-day session. Russell Loane and Bryan Douglas from the Lighting Council of Australia spoke in The Global Lighting Market Forum. What a difference a year makes WARREN JULIAN SHOW REPORT In a session on “Interesting Products” I had an interesting discussion with Steve Katsaros of Nokero Solar that manufactures inexpensive solar charged battery powered LED luminaires for off-grid use. That might be by campers but more importantly for the millions of people dependent upon kerosene for lighting – hence the name No kero(sene). The 2016 event will be held from 27-30 October 2016 – I recommend making plans now to attend. Part of the vast crowd in the lobby area of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
