Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition Features LED Products

Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition Features LED Products

Once again, I’ve been MIA for a while.  This being unemployed is hard work!  And now my mom’s here for a visit, so we’re busy with her.  There’s almost not enough hours in the day.  Added to that, there has been very little to report on in the LED world.  It’s hard to write about nothing.  But it’s not “nothing” that’s happening in China when it comes to LED.

At last month’s 17th Annual Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition – the most influential and comprehensive lighting and LED event in Asia – a record number of attendees streamed through the doors to see what a record number of vendors had to offer – which included several LED products.  The show ran concurrently with Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology, which supports the electrical engineering and building and home automation industries and Building Solar China – Conference and Exhibition featuring integrated solar technologies and other smart solutions for building.

The show, which included 1,900 exhibitors, displayed a wide range of LED technology and products.  The exhibitors and their products were split into categories: retrofit lamps and lighting fixtures, raw material, manufacturing and processing equipment, manufacturing and inspection equipment, substrate and packaging materials, epitaxial wafers; chips and packaging; components and modules, as well as drivers and controls.  U.S.-based exhibitors such as CREE, GE, and Philips Lumileds, joined with Asain companies to bring a varying collection of LED products. In fact, Philips set up two large booths – one for “general lighting” and the other specializing in its LED products.
The exhibition was held June 9-12 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou.
