Milan, March 5 - Smart lighting, Li-Fi, OLED, Internet of Things, Solid State Lighting. All these words are related to innovation and new technologies which are changing - after the introduction of LEDs in lighting sector - our way of thinking light in different scenarios. Not to mention the high performance and lower costs that make LED a pervasive technology, with growth peaks in all applications.
New technologies and electronics for lighting applications (sensors, drivers, wireless devices, thermal management, etc.) represent the core of Illuminotronica 2016, a unique professional meeting in Italy dedicated to lighting in all its aspects.
Held from 6th to 8th October in Padua, Illuminotronica is a privileged point of view dedicated to all those who install, design or apply technologies, systems, products for smart lighting integrated with security and home automation systems. The event is promoted by Assodel (Italian Association of Electronics Clusters) and represents an important occasion of discussion between technicians and professionals, as well as an opportunity for updating on technological developments, market trends and new business opportunities.
First of all, the smart home
Our houses are subject to continuous changes, mostly related to the adoption of new technological devices and smart solutions that can cut energy consumption, optimize the control and management and improve the quality of our lives.
The smart home market is driven by different aspects, such as the European regulations on energy efficiency, the Italian tax recovery policies and the development of increasingly affordable and reliable technologies.
Illuminotronica 2016 especially focuses on smart home as the result of home automation, smart lighting and security integration, to meet people well-being and security needs.
3,000 sqm of exhibition area
more than 6,300 visitors
more than 160 exhibitors and partners
+20% for International presences
+35% for events participants
more than 120 meetings (conferences, round tables, workshop, seminars)
2 installation labs and 4 demo areas
150 attendees at the Gala dinner in Venice
Illuminotronica offers a comprehensive view on lighting, home automation and related technologies. These increasingly interconnected and integrated areas allow Illuminotronica to propose to industry professionals a series of initiatives, demo areas and conferences.
Among the 2016 edition topics:
Technologies & design through the dialogue between who provides technologies and who manufactures lighting fixtures
• Smart Hut:
Systems and hardware / software solutions to optimize applications, security, efficiency in smart homes and "visible" aspects (lighting, security, energy)
• Elettro & Micro:
Electronics (components and systems) to power, assemble, drive products and solutions in the meeting point between who offers and who acquires know-how
A 360 degrees training session
In addition to the exhibition areas, Illuminotronica is a training point of reference thanks to its conferences, debates and training sessions organized in collaboration with experts.
In particular, the event proposes a series of free short technical and educational courses according to different difficulty levels, as well as seminars with credits, studied together with leading trade associations and accredited by professional orders.
Furthermore, technical schools can have customized courses with the aim of giving students a new approach on energy saving and flexibility offered by new technologies in the home automation and lighting fields.
Recognising efficiency, design and innovation
Illuminotronica 2016 will host two award ceremonies, to emphasize innovation and made in Italy design:
The Codega Prize (www.premiocodega.it) is assigned to the best LED projects and solutions in Contract applications. The 4th edition of the International award that highlights innovative lighting projects and excellences in design will take place in Venice on 7th October.
The 18th edition of the Ecohitech Award, which is addressed to public municipalities which adopted LED technology in urban lighting, achieving important results in term of energy saving and citizens well-being.
