India's Renowned LED Expo goes Hybrid
India's renowned trade fair and also the most influential international platform to source and trade lighting technologies in the country is set to mix the physical and digital sourcing experience. The new hybrid edition will take place from 18 – 20 November 2022 at India Expo Mart in Greater Noida, with all of safety protocols.
More than the usual year following the industry was hit by unprecedented business challenges, LED Expo's physical platform will play an instrumental role in uniting the LED value chain to create an atmosphere of collaboration. However, using the on-going travel restrictions which are still in position globally, organisers of LED Expo have announced plans to introduce a multimodal format for that show this year which will integrate in-person interactions and digital business matchmaking. This will enable companies across the globe to sign up in the three-day fair and continue the much-needed business networking and learning, despite travel limitations.
The move also aims to permit greater contact with on-site exhibitors and attract participation from new and emerging markets. Mr Raj Manek, Executive Director and Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd shared: \”Exhibitors on-site will, obviously, have dual advantage and exposure because the digital model through its concentrate on \”product showcases\” and \”knowledge exchange\” results in a new avenue for business sourcing, networking and learning. The concept would be to make collaborative engagements extremely simple and bring the under 'one roof' for three-day of pure business conversations. We are diligently working on all fronts to ensure a productive, safe and successful show experience for that industry.\”
