Visitors to this year’s Light + Building trade fair are invited to step into the new world of Feilo Sylvania as the company unveils several exciting new business announcements, a series of new products and a suite of smart lighting prototypes.

From two exhibition spaces, the global lighting specialist will launch and demonstrate some of its evolving innovations, including smart enabled products to meet current customer trends in both business and consumer markets.

Running from Sunday 18th to Friday 23rd March 2018, at the Messe Frankfurt, Germany, the bi-annual trade show will play host to over 2,600 exhibitors looking to capture the attention of over 200,000 global visitors in attendance. The event brings together the latest technologies in lighting, electrical engineering, and home and building automation, all under one roof.

Christian Schraft, Global CEO at Feilo Sylvania commented; “As a global leader in lighting solutions, we have a passion and a duty to create smarter, more cost-effective lighting services and products that integrate the latest technologies and provide true value to our customers. We look forward to sharing our knowledge and expertise with customers, alongside a number of new prototypes that we will be bringing to Light + Building, thanks to our new SylSmart Lighting Innovation Centres (SLIC).

“Our open-innovation policy is enabling us to push the boundaries of collaboration to deliver original thinking based on a smart lighting infrastructure. SLIC has proved to be absolutely invaluable since its inception, allowing us to develop some of the world’s first lighting solutions that include interoperability beyond lighting, multi-functional mobile-based controls and a self-learning lighting control solution that will give users complete design freedom and control. Excitingly, a select number of visitors will be invited to get the first glimpse of a number of new prototype technologies in a scaled down version of SLIC, which we will host on our inside stand in Hall 4.1.

“Importantly, we will also present our re-positioned and streamlined brand to the industry. We look forward to revealing more about this and our customer-centric business model at the event where our team will be available to give visitors guided tours and answer any questions about the company’s exciting developments.”

From a new base in the AGORA (Booth 20), visitors will experience a number of exciting new ranges of products including START and YourHome. Catering directly to the needs of wholesalers and professional installers, the START range is ideal for everyday usage, especially quick-upgrade commercial projects. While YourHome, which is directly targeted at the consumer market, features a full range of lamps, luminaires and battery operated gadgets for the home. An on-stand competition will see visitors bring their imaginations to life in 3D, using state-of-the-art VR technology. One lucky winner will be selected each day to take home the gadget for themselves.

Inside Hall 4.1, stand E31, the company’s experienced team of experts will light the way through the rapidly changing world of energy and smart lighting. Here, visitors can get to grips with the latest from Feilo Sylvania’s Concord ranges and SylSmart solutions which cater for higher specification, design and architectural lighting needs across office, retail, logistics and industry applications. An interactive ROI calculator app designed to help end-users calculate the guaranteed energy and cost savings they can achieve by lease financing their lighting project, will also be available.
