Shanghai International Lighting Fair


The 4th edition of the Shanghai International Lighting Fair continued its streak of year-on-year growth by again recording increases in exhibitor and visitor numbers as well as hosting a well-received concurrent event programme. The 2017 fair welcomed 12,147 visitors (2016: 11,958), including designers, planners, system integrators, engineers, builders and many other project-based buyers from 32 countries and regions.

Among the 3-day show, a wide range of lighting technologies and components for industrial, residential, urban and commercial applications was also presented, hosted 238 exhibitors in total.

With strong growth in large-scale lighting infrastructure projects led by the Chinese state in recent years, there are plentiful opportunities for the industry to secure new business over the coming years.

Participants' comments

Our exhibitors, who are quite new to China, realise that lighting design will become more interactive and know China is a big market that is full of opportunities.

Mr Lear Hsieh, CLDA President

Shanghai is traditionally the design capital of China so it will be easier to attract the design community to the Shanghai fair.

Mr James Wallace, CEO of IAC, CLDA

The fair provides a good chance for conducting market research, observing competitors, reaching out to clients and updating industry players about our newly developed products.
