Commenting on the show's current achievement, Mr Huben Dun, Managing Director, Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd and Executive Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd added: “The success of our lighting exhibition is concrete proof that the joint venture model between a local and international company such as Messe Frankfurt, really does work. Our co-operation has brought together the unique expertise of each company to create a show of great influence. It reflects all sectors in Asia's dynamic lighting industry as well as being the right place in the world where exhibitors and Visitors can gain an overview of what's happening in the global lighting industry."

The rapid growth of LED technology is opening up new and promising opportunities for the lighting industry and to support this trend, the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition has created LED Asia, a comprehensive zone dedicated to LED/OLED products.
