euroLED 2012 Show Supplement


We take a look at what to expect from this years euroLED, and talk to organisers about the excitement of moving to a new venue.


The spotlight will turn on the NEC next month as euroLED hosts its ninth annual exhibition, conference and gala dinner. The event, organised by Birmingham Science Park Aston (BSPA), attracts leading figures in the lighting industry and brings together the latest innovations throughout the LED and Solid-State Lighting technology supply chain.


Solid-State Lighting refers to lighting types that use a variety of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to illuminate, as opposed to electric filaments, gas or plasma. This innovative form of lighting is said to offer massive energy-saving potential. More than 2,000 visitors from around 30 countries are expected to attend the event at the NEC on June 13th and 14th. Formerly held at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena, it is the first time the popular exhibition, conference and gala dinner has been held at the Birmingham venue, and this relocation to the NEC follows a number of other events from the Ricoh in recent times including TCT live and MM Live. The move will ensure that euroLED can


grow for the future while harnessing the international appeal of the NEC to attract a bigger global audience to the event. Sarah Curtis, New Business Account Manager at the NEC, said: “We are very pleased to be hosting such a prestigious event. euroLED will bring innovations in technology to the


38


heart of the events scene in Birmingham. The client saw the NEC as an attractive place to grow for the future and we will be delighted to assist in the expansion of one of the leading calendar events in this innovative industry.”


The NEC occupies a 610-acre site and is able to offer flexible exhibition and conference space covering 186,000 square metres over 20 interconnecting halls. The venue welcomes around 2.1million visitors every year. The euroLED event will occupy a 3,000sqm


exhibition space within one of the halls, with the conference element taking place in the NEC’s largest conference space, the Concourse Suite, which will be redressed and transformed for the evening’s gala dinner. BSPA, which is owned by Birmingham City Council, operates to drive innovation in the city and the West Midlands region. Michelle Cleaver, Events Manager of BSPA, said: “Our move to the NEC in 2012 will allow euroLED to continue its rapid expansion. The space and flexibility on offer at the venue, combined with excellent


national and international transport links, means that the exhibition and conference can accommodate the growing band of delegates who want to be first in line for news and information about LED and solid-state lighting. “We see Birmingham as a leader in


regeneration through innovation and euroLED stands out as a leading event for the lighting industry. It is hoped that the move to the NEC will encourage future growth, not just for euroLED, and will help to continue to attract other innovative technology events to our forward-thinking city and region.”
