Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition 2022 to bring about a new era of opportunities for lighting in China

15 novembre 2021

Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE) celebrated its line for websites
26th anniversary this summer, gathering 2,036 exhibitors and
97,688 visitors. Over 26 years of success, the fair has grown to
provide a platform connecting industry and inspiring innovation.
GILE will aim to continue this success next year and will be held at
the China Import and Export Fair Complex from 9 to 12 June 2022.

Driven by the maturing of the LED market, the lighting industry is moving
increasingly towards smart lighting technologies. By embracing the
digital transformation, the lighting industry faces new opportunities in
intelligent lighting controls, predictive management, space and
occupancy analytics, beacon networking among many other applications
that have created additional value to basic lighting fixtures. In addition to
the technological advances, there are also changes in business models.
Lighting vendors no longer merely sell light as a product but instead sell
lighting as a service based on IoT connectivity. New lighting applications
such as automotive LEDs, micro and mini LEDs, horticultural lighting, UV
and IR LEDs offer new possibilities for the industry. Today, those in the
lighting industry have to consider many complex factors while making
their next decision in the new era of lighting.

With this in mind, the theme chosen for the 27th edition of GILE is ‘New
Era, New Opportunity’ along with the theme of the fringe programme
‘Turning Ideas Into Action’, promising to share different ways of thinking
about lighting in the new era, as well as how to put those ideas into
practice. GILE will therefore once again offer a dynamic hub for the
lighting industry to share ideas across different market segments,
establishing dialogue around strategies for a new, complex and everchanging

On the theme of the 2022 show, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General
Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd commented: “The lighting industry
is currently going through significant adjustments. As we move into the
post globalisation era, cross-industry collaboration is growing and there
is a shift towards value-added production and innovation. Efforts have
been made in different directions including digitalisation and smart
solutions, with an aim to improve users’ lighting experience. We believe
the lighting industry has a bright future ahead, and by recognising the
true value of lighting to society and people’s lives, we can avoid price
wars and product uniformity and instead seek to open up new markets.
We therefore welcome a new era and new opportunity to bring about a
better future for lighting.”

Three key topics for GILE 2022 – ‘Cross-industry business
cooperation’, ‘Cross-industry application’ and ‘The power of design
and technology’

Promoting two key trends
As the industry’s trendsetter, GILE also has a responsibility to contribute
to the sustainable and healthy development of the lighting industry. The
fair will strive to provide a platform for the lighting industry to
communicate with each other and share the latest market trends. It will
also help companies to explore new ideas and business models, in order
to respond effectively to changes on the horizon.

The way we will live our lives in the future can be summarised by two
key trends, namely healthy living and smart solutions. To reflect this, the
2022 edition of GILE will feature the following zones within the exhibition:

  • Smart-health crossover demonstration pavilion
    GILE and the concurrent Guangzhou Electrical Building
    Technology will once again cooperate with Shanghai Pudong
    Intelligent Lighting Association (SILA) to create a smart-health
    crossover demonstration pavilion, to promote cross-industry
    integration of smart health solutions and to showcase the new
    integration of supply chain. Continuing from the success of the
    previous edition, the pavilion will further expand to halls 9.2 and
    10.2. The pavilion will highlight the latest smart technologies,
    scenario designs and various smart lighting applications.
  • Optical application zone
    Optical applications continue to improve people’s lives. One key
    piece of technology within this field is UVC LEDs, which are
    mainly used in the disinfection and sterilisation market, and will
    likely see an increase in demand following an improvement in
    people’s quality of life. In addition, the popularisation of
    horticulture lighting also provides new opportunities for the food
    industry supply chain. New technologies will be able to speed up
    crop growth as well as increasing their nutritional content. Next
    year’s exhibition will therefore include a special ‘Optical
    application zone’, as well as forums to present cutting-edge
    technologies in this space.

Demonstrating three cross-industry lighting applications
Three major applications will be explored at the fair to highlight the
current opportunities for the cross-industry development of lighting
applications, including:

  • Lighting art and cultural lighting demonstration pavilion
    The first ‘Art of light and cultural & night tourism area’ held in
    2021 brought together 24 well-known designers and 21 wellknown
    brands to jointly create 29 sets of light based works of art.
    With an attempt to promote an enhanced cultural and tourism
    business model and unfold new business opportunities, the 2022
    edition will continue to promote cross-industry collaboration for
    the industry by featuring the cultural & night tourism area in hall
    2.1. Cooperating with seven major sectors including property
    owners, investors, project planners, design companies,
    innovative product suppliers, engineering and construction
    companies, and project management, GILE will improve upon
    last year’s success with larger floor space, a greater variety of
    ways to showcase products, participation from a wider spectrum
    across the supply chain, as well as seminars covering forwardthinking
  • Smart city lighting
    With large increases in new infrastructure construction, the
    demand for smart street lights is growing, opening up new
    opportunities for manufacturers. Smart cities of the future will
    feature new areas of infrastructure such as 5G base stations and
    new energy vehicle charging points. Next year’s fair will highlight
    ‘Smart city lighting’, focusing on three types of smart city
    suppliers, within sectors such as traditional lighting, pylons,
    communications and internet technology, security, display
    screens, electric vehicle charging points and more.
  • New energy sources for lighting
    According to China’s 14th Five-Year Plan, 2021 was the first step
    towards carbon neutrality and peak carbon emissions, with
    pursuing this goal being a key objective of the first year of the
    plan. Next year’s fair will explore innovations in energy sources
    for lighting, as well as their application, which will help the
    development of standardisation, smart transformation and
    internationalisation of new energy lighting.

GILE 2022 fringe programme to emphasise ‘The power of design
and technology’
The current trends within the lighting industry include a focus on creative
designs, good quality products as well as lighting that aims to create
spaces with atmospheres that take people’s emotional well-being into
account. Innovative design in lighting combines science, technology,
culture and art to create a unique new product. The main forum for next
year’s exhibition will adopt the theme ‘Turning ideas into action’,
emphasising the idea of ‘The power of design and technology’. Various
sub-forums will explore a variety of applications and new lighting
technologies in greater depth.

Commenting on the development of the show, Ms Wong continued:
“GILE has positioned itself as a comprehensive platform for the lighting
industry. In 2022, we will continue to work with the industry and keep it
moving forward. Through showcasing products and hosting fringe
events, we will explore topics relating to artificial intelligence, digital
economy, night tourism economy, the integration of residential and
commercial spaces with smart lighting, as well as diversified smart
lighting scenario applications, moving towards a more eco-friendly and
low-carbon lighting industry."
