Property Technology Live

Delivering the digital workplace! At the heart of the show is the Property Technology Live arena. This centrepiece stage and technology zone is where the digital future of lighting comes to life. We’ve curated two days of free, engaging talks, masterclasses and debates from industry experts, including some of the world’s leading property developers such as CBRE and JLL. You can also see demonstrations of the latest technology, meet the leading players and learn from real-world examples of acclaimed projects from around the globe.

Escape Zone

Are you accountable for the emergency lighting in your buildings? If so, you’ll know what a big responsibility it is to ensure that your staff and customers are safe at all times. As the ‘responsible person’ under the Fire Safety Act, it’s also down to you to manage the risk assessments, testing, maintenance and all the associated documentation.

Safer Cities

Lighting has long been a tool in the fight against anti-social behaviour, vandalism, crime and suicides in our cities. But increasingly we are beginning to understand that brighter lighting is not always better; it’s the intelligent application of lighting – both static and dynamic – that is creating the real breakthroughs and leading to reductions in both crime and the fear of crime in our urban environments.

Lighting for Transport and Infrastructure

There are over 720 major UK projects in the pipeline, including major improvements to transport networks such as roads, rail, airports and ports as well as large-scale energy, utility and regeneration projects It’s a once-in-a-generation opportunity to deliver best practice lighting that will represent innovation, value and a human approach to creating welcoming and effective spaces for people.

LIA Live and Academy

If you want to become an expert in lighting, check out the industry leading Lighting Industry Association’s Lighting Academy. Taking place every day in the LIA Live zone, this special educational programme will see experienced tutors from the Lighting Industry Association take you through the fundamentals of light, light sources and lighting design.

The LIA Labs will be there, demonstrating its testing procedures and its precision equipment and the training division is discussing the unprecedented availability of qualifications.

Lighting for Retail and Hospitality

Create spaces your customers will love! Return custom is crucial for retail, hotel and restaurants – and the right lighting is the easiest way to achieve it. In this special conference, we’ll show you how to use light to enhance brand values, create customer engagement and boost sales and we’ll explore case studies where the right lighting has boosted sales.

Lighting for Workplace and Wellbeing

Despite conventional wisdom, workplaces are deceptively difficult places to light well. They are also one of the few categories of lighting with solid restrictions on light level and do’s and don’ts.

Few will suffer if your building façade is lit to 20 lux not 50; make a similar mistake in the workplace and you could have a lawsuit. This conference will show you how to create great spaces that boost productivity and well being.

Lighting for Museums and Galleries

Art doesn’t reproduce the visible’ asserted Paul Klee. ‘Rather, it makes visible the invisible’. The LED lighting revolution is rapidly arriving in museums and galleries, bringing with it a whole array functionality beyond simply illumination.

Smart controls and LEDs are changing how we think about lighting, and how we successfully light the world’s most precious objects and artworks. This timely and exciting conference will bring together world experts to explore the latest techniques and technologies that can create great visitor experiences in our museums and galleries.
