January Furniture Show and LIA announce LIGHT, a new decorative lighting show for 2019.
January Furniture Show and the LIA (Lighting Industry Association) are pleased to announce a new collaboration. The joint venture, called LIGHT, will deliver a comprehensive lighting event within the January Furniture Show for the 2019 event.
The addition of LIGHT fills a gap in the UK market for a decorative lighting event. It will enable buyers to access a wider range of lighting products not previously available at the show. It will also complement the core furniture and interiors content.
The LIA, with a history dating back to 1939, is headquartered in Telford and is Europe’s largest Trade Association for lighting equipment professionals. This includes lighting manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, wholesalers, designers and all professionals active in the UK lighting market.
Peter Hunt, COO of The Lighting Industry Association said of the new partnership: “We are delighted to be returning to an event that offers lighting and furniture buyers a truly compelling product offering. As innovation integrates lighting ever more closely into the modern home, this new show will be an essential platform for our members to meet key buyers from the widest possible audience across the world of furniture and interiors. Clarion Events’ increasing investment in the January Furniture Show is set to deliver a game-changing event for our sector and for those furniture and interiors retailers looking to widen their offering.”
Cleere Scamell, Event Director added: “LIGHT is the most natural of fits and as part of our investment in the ever-strengthening January Furniture Show, we will be working very closely with The LIA team and their members to deliver the strongest-ever reasons for lighting buyers to attend. This collaboration will further enhance the UK’s landmark event for the furniture and interiors market.”
The lighting companies who will be exhibiting at LIGHT will be announced in the coming months.
