Guangzhou. The fair took place concurrently with Guangzhou

exhibitors and 97,688 visitors. Running with the theme ‘The Future
is Now’, GILE 2021 promoted optimism for the lighting industry,
seeking to share the latest developments and technological

On the theme of this year’s show, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General
Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) commented: “The goal of this year’s
fair was to focus on the future, and to encourage the industry to be
optimistic about the positive developments and technological
advancements that are and will continue to emerge. That’s why we
chose the theme ‘The Future is Now’, focusing on the four main areas of
technological innovation, strengthening market segments, promoting
cross-industry collaboration and adding value to the lighting industry. In
addition we aimed to work with the sector to promote a transition towards
personalisation, digitalisation, energy-saving and quality improvement.”

Ms Wong continued: “The industry landscape is going through a number
of changes at present due to technological innovation and evolution in
the concept of lighting, with new business models emerging and lighting
companies adjusting the direction of their product development in order
to adapt. This has been evident from the new products and technologies
on display at this year’s fair, as well as the changing sourcing demands
from visitors. And while the situation with the pandemic in the lead up to
the fair naturally restricted the number of visitors in attendance this year,
we are optimistic that the industry is in a good position to recover and
thrive, driven by these new advances in lighting technology.”

The Future is Now: innovative products for a new smart lighting era
In addition to smart lighting markets such as smart home, smart city
lighting and smart light poles continuing to grow, new sectors are also
emerging. Some key examples include smart health lighting, educational
lighting and agricultural lighting, all of which were on display at this
year’s GILE is the perfect platform to showcase these kinds of products
and an ideal place for businesses to source them.

At this year’s fair, the organisers in collaboration with the Shanghai
Pudong Intelligent Lighting Association (SILA), developed the first ever
Smart-health crossover demonstration pavilion to better highlight the
latest IoT and smart technologies, and various smart lighting
applications. It aimed to support lighting manufacturers in developing
partnerships with other industry players related to various applications,
including smart modules, cloud computing, gateways, industrial design,
IoT solutions, apps, sensors, big data and AI.

Highlights of the fringe programme
More than 250 seminars and forums revolving around the theme ‘The
New Decade of Lighting’ were held as part of the concurrent fringe
programme. The Cultural and Night Tourism Pavilion was another
highlight of the fair, which included both a lighting art display and an
event programme.

Exhibitors’ comments
“This year we came to GILE with our smart home products, including a
home intelligent control system. This edition the buyers who came to the
fair are those who want to bring something new to the table. They are
the ones who want to find better opportunities for cooperation and
learning, and to make the lighting market even better. You can also see
that there are many manufacturers exhibiting smart products this year.”

We discovered that in recent years, the diversity, scale and number of
the fair’s exhibitors have improved greatly. GILE has become an
opportunity for showcase, communication and learning for the various
sectors in the lighting field, so we will continue to participate. On the
other hand, we think that the industry has entered a fiercely competitive
stage that requires us to work together to find out how we can grow and
increase the industry’s overall output value – and GILE has provided us
with such an opportunity to do so.”

determined as ever to participate. People here are still optimistic overall,

education lighting and achieved great results, and have collaborated with
smart manufacturers such as Tuya in the field of smart lighting.”

clients and the industry at one of the most reputable lighting industry
events in the world.”

we’ve worked with before, and we also want to learn about what’s new in
