Smart cities and sustainable urbanisation in an era of digitalisation
Smart cities and sustainable urbanisation in an era of digitalisation
Sustainable urbanisation and a digital revolution are transforming the ASEAN region, while governments in ASEAN cities are starting to recognise the role of information and communications technology to better plan city development. In the era of digitalisation, the lighting community needs to provide not only traditional lighting fixtures, but also smart lighting and smart city solutions.
The demand for energy has increased by 70% since 2000 and is expected to grow in order to meet economic growth in the region.
Smart lighting has emerged as a crucial component for smart homes, buildings and cities alike.
By integrating network connectivity and intelligence into LED-based luminaries, it helps to form the backbone of smart cities, and to make the vision of IoT feasible.

Participants’ testimonies
“We are exhibiting our new digital time switch solution for lights and appliances that is programmable by a smart device. We have had a surprising amount of interest from buyers who originate outside of Thailand which was a pleasant surprise as it means that the fair is able to attract quality buyers from overseas. We are targeting system integrators and facility managers and we have managed to meet these kinds of buyers at the show. We wanted to make a greater effort in branching out into markets like Thailand so participating at the fair provided us with an ideal opportunity.”
Mr Ken Sayker, Sales Director Asia Pacific, Graesslin GmbH (Germany)
“Any trade fair is worthwhile attending as it only takes one good contact or lead to make the time spent beneficial. The market in Thailand and the Asean region is growing and I think the fair is increasing in quality with every edition. I think the range of exhibitors has been good and I’ve been able to find some interesting products and solutions which I can advise my clients about.”
Mr Ralph P. McMurray, Honorary Trade Advisor, Ministry of Commerce,
Royal Thai Government (USA)
“The fair has a wide variety of products and I saw exhibitors from many different sectors of the lighting industry. I’m looking to find local Thai manufacturers with their unique products and take on lighting solutions. I’m satisfied with the fair as it met my expectations in terms of the type of exhibitors I was able to meet. I will return next year.”
Mr Ronald Fung, Vice-President,
Hong Kong Electrical Appliance Industries Association (Hong Kong)
“At the fair I was looking particularly for solar lighting and street lighting and I was pleased with the range of products and solutions that I encountered. The demand in Cambodia now for lighting solutions, especially energy-saving solutions, is quite strong and so I will return to the fair in the future to keep looking for the best new products and technology.”
Mr Sean Sophea, Vice-President, Cambodia Business Association (Cambodia)
