The UK's only dedicated exhibition for lighting specification

Held over two days at the Business Design Centre, the first-ever LiGHT exhibition held on 22 & 23 November 2022, closed its doors to a buzz of positivity, from both visitors and exhibitors alike.

The design community came out in force to support the new show, with almost 3,500 visitors passing through the doors to see more than 100 high-end international lighting brands present their latest product ranges for the architectural and decorative specification market.

Show highlights included the [d]arc thoughts talks programme, which benefited from a steady stream of guests across the two days, keen to learn more about the hot topics in lighting.

Visitors to the show also made good use of the dedicated workspace area on the gallery level. LiGHT Work was a beautiful relaxing space allowing show attendees to complete office tasks, while offering dedicated wi-fi, free coffee, and charging points.

The buzz around the new lighting event continued into day two with a LiGHT networking lunch hosted in the [d]arc thoughts talks arena, allowing visiting designers and manufacturers to meet in a relaxed space.

The show was also heavily supported by industry trade bodies and organisations including: SLL; IALD; ILP; LIA;  BIID; SBID; Women in Lighting, along with industry media organisations: ICON, On Office; Archiproducts; DeZeen; NLA; World Architecture News; and STIR.

Delighted with the success of the first year, [d]arc media Managing Director, Paul James comments: “The show has been a resounding success with the design community coming out in force to support this first year. LiGHT 22 caters to the ever-growing design sector in London and further afield and is a new offering for lighting design built on [d]arc media’s knowledge and experience of the lighting specification market that spans more than 20 years.

“We have had nothing but positive feedback from exhibiting brands and visitors alike and I am really looking forward to what next year’s show will bring.”
