Electronic & Lighting

Illuminotronica is the event dedicated to LED technology and its application in the lighting sector. The word “Illuminotronica” has been created to identify LED/Solid State Lighting technologies in lighting engineering and to give our industry’s lighting innovations a prominent position in the worldwide panorama. Assodel (Italian Association of Electronic Suppliers) promotes Illuminotronica, the unique professional event in Italy addressed to “Electronic & Lighting” world’s operators.
The event will be articulated in a rich plan of conferences, coordinated by Assodel’s Technical Committee and in a community area of meeting between the supply and the demand; the “live” exhibition of lamps and lighting systems will show the conjugation between design and technology.
Furthermore, an “educational” session will propose a series of workshop and tutorial.

Addressed to Architects, Lighting Designers, Lighting Specialists

The Retail and Commercial lighting market – lighting in commercial and public offices, from single stores to large retailers and GDO, from pubs to restaurants and hotels – requires a specific knowledge in visual merchandising and techniques related to lighting.
When planning a lighting system, the designer has to bear in his mind different aspects, like technical requirements, energy efficiency results and aesthetic aspects, which are all important and closely related to the emphasis required for the products displayed and the message you want to convey to the consumer.
The aim of the conference is to stress the rule of the Lighting Designer in designing retail and commercial areas through case histories in which LED technology has played a fundamental role.
The conference is realized with the support of:
POPAI Italy (international retail and marketing association that have the scope to promote stores and sales points culture through trainings and information)
CNCC – National Council of Shopping Centers (Association that group private and public bodies linked to Shopping Centers, Malls and Factory Outlets) * to be defined
Main topics:
• Retail projects, design and LED technology
• The role of lighting designer
