In view of the increasing spread of the coronavirus in Europe and after intensive consultations, Messe Frankfurt has decided to postpone Light + Building. The world’s leading trade fair for lighting and building-services technology will now be held in Frankfurt am Main between the middle and end of September 2020. The cooperation partners of the international trade fair, ZVEI and ZVEH, support this decision.
The unexpected appearance of Covid-19 in Italy since last weekend demanded a new analysis of the situation in close cooperation with the public-health authorities of the City of Frankfurt. A multi-stage health check on guests from China has been called for, the implementation of which would be extremely challenging for Messe Frankfurt. Additionally, more and more travel restrictions are being put into place thus making it difficult for both visitors and exhibitors to attend the fair. Therefore, the organisers have decided to postpone Light + Building. This decision is supported by the cooperation partners of Light + Building, the Electrical Installation Systems and the Light Working Groups of the Central Association of the German Electrical and Electronic Engineering Industry (ZVEI) and the Central Association of German Electricians (ZVEH). The foremost Italian associations also back this decision. After Germany, the largest groups of exhibitors and visitors come from China and Italy.

Stage for intelligent building services technology
The electrical engineering and home and building automation sectors have a key role to play in the construction and operation of intelligent, connected buildings. The increasingly data-intensive control of electrical and electronic installations increases the quality of both the workplace and the home. At Light + Building, visitors will be able to discover any number of innovative technologies that make it possible to have low energy consumption, high levels of comfort and new design ideas at the same time.

Intersec Building, the international platform for connected security technology, adds a further major emphasis to the show. An integral part of Light + Building, Intersec Building in Hall 9.1 builds bridges between theory and practice, with the help of international market leaders and entrepreneurs.
