Sensational success of Light+Building 2008
The 5th Light+Building in Frankfurt am Main closed its doors on 11 April after setting a sensational trade-fair record. More than 165,000 visitors (2006: 135,000) came to the international trade fair for archi-tecture and technology to see the vast range of products and services for the fields of lighting, electrical engineering and house and building automation presented by 2,173 exhibitors. Compared to the last Light+Building two years ago, this represents a huge leap of 22 per-cent. The largest single group of visitors – over 40,000 of them – came from the installation trade. Also well represented were, in addi-tion to the trade and industry, architects, lighting planners and engi-neers. The level of internationality at the fair also rose significantly with 40 percent of visitors coming from outside Germany (2006: 34 percent). Altogether, approx. 66,000 international trade visitors made their way to Frankfurt am Main and thus contributed to a record result that exceeded by far the already positive expectations based on the larger number of exhibitors (2006: 2,139), the greater area oc-cupied and longer duration of the fair (extended from five to six days).
