Middle East Smart Lighting and Energy Summit

The 4th Annual Middle East Smart Lighting and Energy Summit will take place on 23 and 24 November 2015 at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi, UAE. Over the last four years, the leading smart lighting summit has become one of the biggest and most successful events running in the region attracting delegates from the entire GCC.

The 4th edition of the summit will be attended by over 400 local and international lighting industry professionals including municipality and public works officials, lighting designers, architects, engineers, consultants, developers and public sector representatives. Delegates at the summit will discuss the latest advancements in lighting technology, with topics spanning the range from sustainable design and execution, strategies, products and solutions for large-scale projects, to smart lighting, automation, fixtures, façade lighting, street lighting, urban lighting, indoor lighting, and architectural lighting.

One of the main pillars of sustainability and energy efficiency worldwide is lighting, with special focus on the ways in which lighting can be used efficiently. Unsurprisingly, the lighting industry affords opportunities galore, more so in the Middle East, with its unique lighting needs. Industry estimates indicate that the global lighting market will grow at a CAGR of 13% until 2018, propelled by the increased use of energy-efficient LED lighting across public and private sector projects. Electricity consumption in the MENA region is also set for faster growth, with over USD 200 billion in planned investments in the region’s power sector by 2020. Global forecasts for the total LED market predict an annual growth of 5% till 2016, and 3% thereafter until 2020. With the popularity of LED lighting on the rise in both indoor and outdoor lighting, the region is poised to experience tremendous growth, with a market that is potentially worth USD 350 million by 2017.

The 4th Annual Middle East Smart Lighting and Energy Summit will bring to the fore the challenges faced by the industry, developments in smart technology, upcoming projects, the regulatory standards, and many more such topics of relevance to the industry. The summit affords a unique opportunity to share and learn, as well as network with those who matter.
