Program Introduction

Creating Value with Light

Lighting Heart & Soul

People have a special connection to light. It brings us joy and facilitates good health. This track is designed to inform about the best of human centric lighting by demonstrating special applications and sharing new insights. You will acquire concrete methods and design concepts to integrate human centric lighting in your projects.

The Right to Create

Let Trends in Lighting empower you. Join our workshops with their hands-on approach. Learn about new technologies by working and experimenting with materials you would otherwise have no access to.

Humanized Tech

Learn about some of the world’s best user experiences with light and how those experiences were designed by considering customer journeys and personalization of the lighting design. Grasp how to create your next project with a better understanding of the expectations and perceptions of your audience.

Beyond Illumination

Connected lighting is the next, big thing. But how will it make sense to people? The workshops and seminars in this track explore the purpose of light as a carrier of data and a vital part of a much big- ger technology ecosystem. Get the low-down on meaningful applications of “smart lighting” and learn how all of this will change our lives.


Be Empowered by TiL. What Inspires You?

Trends in Lighting is the first event that knows no industry boundaries and brings together creatives and innovators who work with light. Our attendees and our speakers and workshop tutors are all involved in LED innovation yet apply their knowledge in different industries such as architecture, automotive, healthcare, product design and art. We believe that all of us are facing similar challenges and want to utilize new technologies in meaningful ways to create experiences that are memorable and relevant. This is not exclusive to architects! Trends in Lighting brings together knowledge, likeminded professionals and curious minds, and is a fantastic opportunity to upskill yourself and get inspired
OLED is a main focus because we believe it is undervalued as a great and beautiful light source. It also has very broad application areas; we’ve seen cars with integrated OLED lighting as well as decorative home luminaires that glow beautifully. Trends in Lighting sports workshops, lectures and gatherings around OLED. But there is much more: the Internet of Things and connectivity will be addressed deeper and broader than anywhere else, with an emphasis on meaningful applications. There is too much talk about technology as such but we need designers to make things relevant!
Trends in Lighting is a much needed event in the world of lighting. It demonstrates that lighting knows no boundaries and has new and unexpected applications everywhere: in healthcare, entertainment, mobility and agriculture, to name just a few areas. But Trends in Lighting is also mission critical for the lighting industry in its quest to find new meanings and new relevance of light in the digital age. Now we have passed the stage of energy savings being most important, we have begun to explore new purposes of light and new applications that bring true value to people all over the world.
At Trends in Lighting you will meet architects, engineers, art directors, product designers, fashion technologists and artists and probably even more professionals. All will inspire each other and that is exactly one of the main objectives of the event. Trends in Lighting will not only be a great three days to get your knowledge up to date, but will also let you go home again inspired and enlightened.
