Well that’s it, the Light & Build exhibition is over for another two years and our technical team have been reminiscing about what impressed them the most this year.
The top themes this year were the “smartification of everyday life” and “aesthetics and well-being in harmony”. A prolific focus has been to create connected solutions which will reduce energy consumption and also offer individual design and high levels of convenience. This is of particular interest for Steon as our design team offer tailored lighting designs and provided innovative bespoke lighting solutions. We also endeavour to implement energy efficient lighting solutions to reduce carbon footprint and provide cost effective projects.
The highlights for Steon
- Kevin Bridge – Production Manager “ I thoroughly enjoyed walking round all the exhibition stands and seeing how much they had advanced since 2016. From being in the industry a number of years I have seen the development from compact fluorescent to LED but the exhibition has proved just how advanced the LED industry has become. I was also interested to find out more about the IoT and Bluetooth technologies.”
- Sam Howard – Technical Design Manager “2018 was my first visit to the Light & Building exhibition and it was a great opportunity for me to speak to some of the major players within the lighting industry whilst also expanding my technical knowledge.”
- Nigel Walton – Managing Director “I have attended a number of Light & Building exhibitions in the past however 2018 was the best yet. It was fascinating to experience first-hand just how advanced the lighting industry has become and see the creative technologies which inspire the future of lighting.”
The Light & Build exhibition has been a great opportunity for us to put names to what is usually an anonymous face and build personal relationships with both our customers and a number of likeminded OEMs.
Overall this business trip has been extremely beneficial as our technical team have been able to look at the latest technologies and see their effects first hand, this is crucial for the development of our skills and technical knowledge to enable us to continue providing lighting products and services on the cutting edge of the industry’s capabilities.
