LuxLive preview: Under the lights

Taking place at Earls Court on 6-7 November, LuxLive will showcase a wide range of lighting solutions aimed at users looking to slash energy bills and reduce carbon emissions while improving the lit environment.

Major users of lighting such as retailers, developers, manufacturers, transport and infrastructure providers as well as public sector managers, will descend upon Earls Court, London for one of the biggest shows in the lighting sector’s calendar. Visitors will benefit from being able to see all of the major companies and ear from expert speakers discussing exemplar projects. As Neil Painter of Nandos, who visited LuxLive last year, said: “For me, Lux is all encompassing. It brings in all aspects of the industry, but also looks at the wider audience. It approaches it from a customer’s perspective, which is great for us and makes us fell like we have a voice.”

LuxLive is the most comprehensive and exciting lighting exhibition in the UK – a groundbreaking mix of new technologies and innovations plus free masterclasses, seminars, demos and features.

At LuxLive, you’ll be able to learn from the head of lighting at London Underground, Shae Gilbert, about how the company is modernising its 150-year-old network. The capital’s subterranean rail network dates back to 1862, before electric lighting was invented, and since then it has grown into one of the UK’s most complex lighting estates.

Michael Grubb, Olympic learning legacy ambassador, will describe the sustainable lighting lessons learned during London 2012. There’ll also be opportunities to learn directly from big lighting users such as Andy Sheridan, services facilities manager at Manchester Airport, on the measures he’s taking to cut energy use by 25% by 2015 with the introduction of new technology and sophisticated controls.

There will be debates about LEDs, retail lighting and controls in the LuxLive Forum and a comprehensive financing briefing by big providers such as the Carbon Trust, Salix, Lombard and others, giving you an invaluable overview of the various ways to fund a lighting retrofit.  In this special session, they will outline the various options that are available to fund a low-energy retrofit lighting installation. Salix will outline the special measures available in the public sector, while the Carbon Trust will explain what’s available to those in the private sector. Additionally, Thorn Lighting will outline the packages available from a manufacturer while a major bank will outline other financing options on the market.

Leading the technological shift in lighting, LuxLive exhibitors will be presenting groundbreaking developments designed to allow you to create stunning spaces, while dramatically increasing efficiency and vastly improving your lit environment. All the big names will be showing their latest kit, including Philips, Osram, GE, Thorn and Toshiba. They will be joined by more than 150 other brands that will showcase both LED and traditional technologies.
