BePOSITIVE and LIGHTING DAYS 2019 Review: A Resounding Success Event

In 2019, the BePOSITIVE exhibition once again confirmed its place as the big national gathering on the energy and digital transition in buildings and regions. It notably joined forces for the first time with Lighting Days, France’s major event and exhibition in lighting and LED technology. Together, they proved a real success, their themes being very complementary, underpinning new synergies and stimulating new business opportunities! For three days from 13th to 15th February at Eurexpo Lyon, the joint exhibitions swirled to the rhythm of innovations, trends, business, exchanges, feedback, accounts. Here’s our Lighting Days 2019 Review.

Lighting Days 2019 Review: Visitor Attendance Shows Big Increase

Almost 30,000 professional visitors made their way to BePOSITIVE and Lighting Days over the three days, proof if it were needed that the energy and digital transition really is a major societal and industrial concern for  professionals. A noteworthy progression in the number of visitors was recorded: 10% up on the 2017 edition.

BePOSITIVE and Lighting Days also consolidated their status as nationwide gatherings, with nearly 50% of French visitors from outside the home region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and certain regions showing very strong progression, especially Grand Est and Ile-de-France, whose numbers doubled.

Lighting Days Awards – Women in Lighting

Because light enables seeing, understanding, acting, admiring, contemplating, and dreaming, the Lighting Days AWARDS highlight light!
At this, the 1st edition, the awards were reserved for ”Femmes de la Lumière”— women in lighting. These are women who, within their organization or company, have worked toward promoting innovation, modernizing the regulations, and conducting exemplary projects. The Awards were organized in partnership with the French Lighting Syndicate..
