-A Sustainable & Livable Future
THLF 2019 will be held on 28 - 31 October 2019 at Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), Bangkok, Thailand. Concurrently held with Thailand Building Fair (THBF) 2019 and Secutech Thailand 2019, three shows will bring out the theme of "Smart City Solutions" with THLF and THBF focusing on “Smart + Energy” in order to bring a sustainable and livable future. The major elements to be showcased at the fairs, including AI, Smart+Energy, Security, smart lighting and more.
The fairs will also hold hands with Digital Thailand Big Bang 2019 and exhibit under the same theme as THLF 2019.
Looking backward to THLF 2018, the fair held on 8 - 10 November 2018 at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand. Being concurrently held with Thailand Building Fair (THBF) 2018 and Secutech Thailand 2018, the fairs welcomed over 300 exhibitors from 18 countries and regions, and attracted over 10,200 visitors from 48 countries and regions.
Thailand Lighting Fair is ASEAN’s leading trade fair on lighting technology, design and application. This year, THLF brings a whole new direction on Smart + Energy, segmenting the fair into six main sections: Applications – Digital Living, Technology – Smart Tech, Management – Smart Governance, Energy Source, Power Generation, Energy Management.
In 2018, Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd has acquired Thailand Lighting Fair and Thailand Building Fair to form part of the Light + Building family that totals 14 fairs around the globe. With this move, the fairs can leverage Messe Frankfurt's extensive international experience in growing trade fairs, while at the same time utilise its local organising partners' knowledge to propel themselves forward as ASEAN’s leading trade fairs for lighting and building technology, design and solutions.
The 5th edition of THLF 2019 and the 3rd edition of THBF 2019 will held concurrently at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand on 28 – 30 October 2019.
This is our first time attending Thailand Building Fair. In recent years photovoltaic systems have become much more popular in Thailand. Therefore we decided to participate at the fair to promote our brand to the Thai market and it has been a worthwhile decision to join the exhibition.
We are exhibiting our new digital time switch solution for lights and appliances that is programmable by a smart device. We have had a surprising amount of interest from buyers who originate outside of Thailand which was a pleasant surprise as it means that the fair is able to attract quality buyers from overseas. We are targeting system integrators and facility managers and we have managed to meet these kinds of buyers at the show. We wanted to make a greater effort in branching out into markets like Thailand so participating at the fair provided us with an ideal opportunity.
Any trade fair is worthwhile attending as it only takes one good contact or lead to make the time spent beneficial. The market in Thailand and the Asean region is growing and I think the fair is increasing in quality with every edition. I think the range of exhibitors has been good and I’ve been able to find some interesting products and solutions which I can advise my clients about.
The fair has a wide variety of products and I saw exhibitors from many different sectors of the lighting industry. I’m looking to find local Thai manufacturers with their unique products and take on lighting solutions. I’m satisfied with the fair as it met my expectations in terms of the type of exhibitors I was able to meet. I will return next year.
At the fair I was looking particularly for solar lighting and street lighting and I was pleased with the range of products and solutions that I encountered. The demand in Cambodia now for lighting solutions, especially energy-saving solutions, is quite strong and so I will return to the fair in the future to keep looking for the best new products and technology.
