Top themes at a glance
‘Dynamic digitalization’ is the overarching theme of all top themes, which refer to the claim of the anniversary edition of the fair in the ‘Connecting’, ‘Pioneering’ and ‘Fascinating’ categories. In this way, Light + Building spotlights the sometimes varying roles of energy producers and consumers with ‘progressive energy management’, which can be regulated with the aid of smart building-automation systems.

Moreover, ‘smart urban’ depicts the current situation and future of intelligent e-district infrastructures. Additionally, the likely increase in e-mobility calls for comprehensive and efficient charging infrastructure. ‘Advanced e-charging infrastructure’ stands for this subject area at Light + Building. Another important aspect for the sector and users is ‘connected safety and security’. All four thematic blocks are assigned to the top theme of ‘Connecting’.

Parallel to this, the top theme of ‘Pioneering’ covers areas that have a great potential but are not yet fully established in the market. For example, ‘X as a Service’ whereby ‘X’ stands for a specific product, such as lighting or security. ‘Predictive maintenance’ is also pioneering work.

Thus, electronic installations in buildings can be monitored via the sophisticated use of sensors and software before any loss of efficiency or even the occurrence of a fault. The ‘digital twin – BIM’ has not only become a thematic interdisciplinary interface for all players involved in systems integration.

Nowadays, design is not used exclusively to mean the form or shape of the luminaires. The technical specification is no less important, especially when it comes to connectivity. At Light + Building 2020, the top theme of ‘Fascinating’ will spotlight important attributes of future-oriented lighting and luminaire design. ‘Functional aesthetics’ describes a mega trend that consciously does without ornamentation while concentrating on the lighting requirements of different situations.

The international product spectrum and top themes will be supplemented by the renowned, comprehensive complementary programme of events. Light + Building has much of interest to all trade-visitor groups, from architects, designers, retailers and artisans to the industry, engineers, interior architects and planners.
