Amongst others, the trade fair targets architects, designers, engineers, and artisans and covers topics like lighting, electrical engineering, house and building automation. Expectations are high about all the innovations and also the unique atmosphere the event offers each time. Leading companies from the lighting sector, such as the EBV partners OSRAM Opto Semiconductors and ON Semiconductor, will be showcasing their solutions from March 13th to 18th at the area of Messe Frankfurt.
A Lighting Conference You Must Not Miss
