Opening in two weeks, LED Expo will bring some of the leading LED technology manufacturers from 11 – 13 May to Mumbai, to promote widespread penetration of LED lights throughout the country.
Larger than ever before, the Mumbai edition marks a 22% increase in number of exhibitors and 39% increase in international participation. Overall, this edition of LED Expo 2017 will be 28% bigger than the last Mumbai edition covering 7200 sqms of exhibition space and featuring more than 200 exhibiting companies from India, China, Hong Kong, Korea and Taiwan.
Power Minister Piyush Goyal announced recently that the government’s promotion of light emitting diodes (LED) will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 80 million tonnes per annum and save around Rs 40,000 crore in power bills annually. Lighting alone accounts for approximately 20% of the total electricity consumption in India. When the required amount of light can be regulated more accurately using energy-efficient LEDs and smart lighting, as much as 30-40 per cent of the energy required for lighting could be saved.
The government is already promoting the adoption of LED-based products to save power and running costs across public sectors and an increasing trend in the adoption by private and industrial sectors has been witnessed in the last few months coupled with a noticeable rise in participation at LED Expo every year – both from exhibitors and visitors.
Organised by Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India Pvt Ltd, the platform will present a dazzling display of LED lighting products, signages and displays, LED components, chips, accessories, raw materials, manufacturing equipment and allied products to Indian corporate, private and government sectors in the upcoming edition. Many of these brands have chosen the platform to launch, demonstrate or announce their entry into new LED product segments.
The LED Summit on day two of the fair is also expected to pull in regulatory bodies and sector players together to cover exciting trends in LEDs. At the 16th edition of this international exhibition on LED lighting products and technologies in India, special emphasis has been given to the needs of buyers and trade visitors through a new well-structured exhibition format wherein a hall-wise product segmentation of the various products and applications of LEDs will allow visitors to see leading brands in the same segment together and compare prices and value additions.
Various ministries and government bodies including Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, as well as Maharashtra Energy Development Agency, Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport Undertaking, Electronic Industries Association of India, Solar Energy Society of India, Indian Building Congress and the apex body of the Lighting manufacturers – ELCOMA (Electric Lamp & Component Manufacturers Association) have announced strong support to this platform which promotes energy saving lighting and LED technologies for the country.
