The focus of the lighting industry has now changed from hardware to the implementation of better smart software technologies that integrate with light.
First, I would like to commend you on the organization, everything went smoothly. The choice of speakers were great and smart as they came from different backgrounds which gave us a wide angle of perspective as each approached the topics at hand from a different angle. The most enjoyable speaker was Mr. Waleed from CD+M Lighting. I hope to see him again in one of your conferences.

Overall a great learning experience for us. I wish we’d come better prepared in terms of having a local agent. All the visitors have asked whether we had one. Very well organised, knowledgeable speakers and great venue.

The summit was organised very well by Expotrade. The city lighting tour was excellent. The involvement of officials of ADCM was good. The stamp collection concept is a novel idea which motivates all delegates to visit various stalls.
