Overall, the experience of being in Hong Kong, the reception and help from the organiser, and the customers we met all exceeded our expectations."

At the 2008 fair, buyer Federico Ariel Palacio, G eneral M anager of Palacio Ilumina, Argentina, stated, "This fair is ideal for us to see new products as well as catch up on new ideas and trends. We are particularly impressed with the extra bright LED technology that is on show this season as we are constantly on the lookout for more energy-efficient products for indoor use that are also versatile and more cost effective. I have been coming to this fair since its inception and the quality of exhibitors gets better each year. I am very impressed by their capabilities and their ability to stay ahead of the technological curve."

With increasing concern on global warming and a focus on energy-efficient lighting, many countries and regions are eliminating incandescent lighting and developing new lighting products.
