LED Expo Mumbai announces new dates
To be held in May 2021, the expo is gearing up for new product launches and technological advancements
Occurring twice a year, LED Expo is the biggest and most trusted platform showcasing the entire value chain of lighting products and components in India. The show that was previously planned to take place from September 2020 has been cancelled in adherence to the advisory measures that are still in place by the Indian government. The show will now open its doors from May 20-22, 2021, in Hall-1 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai.
The magnitude and significance of LED Expo Mumbai attracts attendees from different parts of India and abroad. Considering the present status, exhibition organisers Messe Frankfurt India are still looking for a green signal from the government to restart exhibitions in the country and other vital segments like international travel. A decision taken after close consultation with industry experts was well supported by exhibitors and stakeholders. This will also enable the lighting sector to regain its strength and provide adequate time for companies to study future demands, develop new products, strengthen supply chains and restore business for the overall lighting market in India.
“LED Expo Mumbai is an important event in the business calendars of our stakeholders, and every year, the lighting industry eagerly waits to meet and network at our platform. I believe that by May 2021 we will have a far more stable health situation along with a healthy business environment. I am looking forward to a variety of product launches and technological advancements as this period will provide the industry with the required time to channel their efforts and plan their participation more effectively,” shared Raj Manek, executive director and board member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings.
As the industry slowly re-opens and gains momentum, LED Expo as a brand is actively contributing in the digital space by organising various knowledge oriented seminars to discuss future guidelines for the lighting segment. The show also organised a one-of-a-kind sourcing webinar in July that connected focussed buyers and sellers on a digital platform resulting in many positive trade enquiries.
The exhibition industry not only offers business value to its exhibitors and visitors, but also supports trade and employment opportunities in allied segments of aviation, hospitality, restaurants and hotels, and public transport making it one of the core sectors to revive the economy. Continuing to keep the industry connected, the launch edition of Light + LED Expo India will be held from December 3-5, 2020, at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. The premier lighting exhibition platform is a strategic collaboration of two biggest shows for the industry that will unfold abundant business opportunities and exchange of knowledge.
