Lighting has been one of MEE’s fastest growing sectors for a number of years. To meet demand, the 2015 event will feature, for the first time ever, an area solely dedicated to the lighting industry, thereby increasing the total floor space for 2015 by 15 per cent.
The Green Energy Conference would highlight the urgency and vision in creating sustainable energy solutions, with a focus on combining traditional and alternative energy sources (creating hybrid systems) and incorporate sustainable energy means.
The Solar Middle East Conference, which takes place on Day Two of the show, is expected to provide a holistic view of the regional solar industry with a country focus on Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Jordan, the organisers added.
On Day Three, first ever conference agenda dedicated to commercial lighting would be featured at MEE. The conference would highlight issues such as transitioning to and supporting the LED market in the Middle East, as well as a session on how new sustainability guidelines would be the driving force behind Abu Dhabi’s and Dubai’s aggressive goals to become smart, sustainable cities.
Platinum sponsors Saudi Exports and Al Fanar have increased their presence at the show both in terms of the stand size as well as sponsorship.
