Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition 2021

3 August, 2021 - 6 August, 2021

Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition 2021: The Future is Now

Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition 2021 (GILE) will take place from 3 – 6 August 2021, along with the Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology (GEBT) show, now that the pandemic situation is under control in Guangdong province. The event, which was originally scheduled for June, will take place at the China Import and Export Fair Complex.

25 years Lighting Industry Platform

“We would like to thank all our stakeholders in the industry for their ongoing support and trust in the fairs,” Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd expressed. “GILE has been an integral part of the lighting industry for 25 years, and together with GEBT has built a platform that creates new business opportunities and exchanges for the industry. In the past month since we announced the postponement we have not stood still, hosting a successful 10-day online exhibition to support the industry.”

Now that the new dates are set, the organization will devote all its efforts to the preparation and promotion of the August fairs. The Guangdong government has enhanced its support for events to resume from July onwards. They have been in close communication with the fairground management to prepare comprehensive cleaning and disinfection measures for the fair period, as well as epidemic prevention and control plans to ensure the safety of all those involved.

GILE 2021: The Future is Now

The theme of GILE 2021 is ‘The Future is Now’, which was chosen to encourage the lighting industry to seek breakthroughs and be optimistic about the upcoming developments. And both fairs will work together with the industry to promote a transition towards personalization, digitization, energy-saving, and quality improvement. Messe Frankfurt will continue to work side by side with the lighting and building industries to support their development.

GILE is the lighting sector’s most influential and comprehensive event in Asia, while GEBT is the region’s premier platform for the electrical engineering, intelligent building and smart home markets. The fairs provide a comprehensive platform for sourcing needs and business opportunities whilst encouraging exhibitors and visitors to share the latest market information and research.
