The world’s leading trade fair for lighting and building services technology

About 2,500 exhibitors take part in Light + Building at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre and almost one in two of the over 210,000 visitors comes from outside Germany. The most important visitor target groups are architects, interior architects, designers, planners, engineers, artisans, the distributive trades and industry


Every two years, the industry presents its latest innovations for the fields of lighting, electrical engineering, house and building automation and software for the construction industry at the world’s leading trade fair for architecture and technology. The main theme at Light + Building  is energy efficiency.

Light + Building is the world’s biggest trade fair for lighting and building-services technology and presents solutions that cut the energy consumption of a building at the same time as increasing the level of comfort. At the fair, everything is represented, from LED technology, via photovoltaic and electro-mobility, to intelligent electricity usages with smart metering and smart grids. Thanks to the combination of lighting and networked building-services technology, the companies can present an integrated spectrum of products and services that make a decisive contribution to exploiting the energy-saving potential of buildings to the full.


Variety is also a distinguishing feature of outdoor lighting – from bollard luminaires, uplights and spotlights for illuminating buildings, via spotlight mirror systems, to street lighting.

At the world’s leading fair for the sector, you can also see trends, such as illuminations in public areas and shop lighting as an element of sales promotion. Together with the electrical engineering and building automation segments, this generates completely new impulses from which you can now benefit.
