Light + Building 2024: a symbiosis of lighting and connected building-services technology

Light + Building in Frankfurt am Main from 3 to 8 March 2024 covers the spectrum from intelligent lighting technology to future-oriented home and building technology.

The world's leading trade fair for lighting and building-services technology is the foremost international meeting place for experts, manufacturers, planners, architects and investors, all of whom take advantage of this innovation show to discover future-oriented solutions. Additionally, the focus is on the exchange of knowledge, making new business and gaining inspiration.

As the leading platform for the sector, Light + Building spotlights the subjects that have a decisive impact on the exhibiting companies. Electrification represents the foundation stone for greater sustainability and a building sector capable of meeting future demands. Accordingly, the motto of the world's leading trade fair in 2024 is 'Be Electrified'. Based on this motto, three top themes 'Sustainability', 'Connectivity' and 'Work + Living' specify the factors set to be essential for living, working and mobility in tomorrow's world. Throughout Light + Building, they constitute the common thread for lectures, guided tours and special shows.

The 'Sustainability' theme revolves around systems and approaches that contribute to making the building sector more economically and environmentally viable, i.e., the integration and storage of green energy and an efficient energy management. However, sustainability also plays an important role in both the materials used and the manufacturing process.

The 'Connectivity' theme also contributes to the efficient use of resources. Thus, electrification and digitalisation are the basis for successfully interconnecting the various disciplines of the smart home and the smart building and, in the product life cycle of a building, begins at the planning stage using Building Information Modelling (BIM). The collection and storage of data makes it possible to control and maintain the functions of a building efficiently during use, resulting in a higher level of comfort and, in particular, greater safety and security.

The 'Work + Living' theme deals with the changing demands on mobility and where we live and work, as well as production and sales areas and the urban context. Whether working remotely from home or meeting places for social interaction in an industrial building, tomorrow's smart home and the smart buildings are planned to make both possible. A special focus is placed on the topic of light and lighting in all its facets. Here, innovative technology is combined with trend-setting design for more comfort. Trends in all their aspects play an important role here. They influence the design of luminaires and design elements in buildings.
