Messe Frankfurt Middle East invites you to their webinar

Impact of COVID-19 on the Lighting Industry

About this webinar

Where do we see the lighting industry going after the COVID-19 Pandemic? What will be the effects on the regional lighting projects? Will there be new approaches? What will be the new challenges? Join us for the first session in the THINKLIGHT webinar series, supported by Scientechnic Lighting Solutions.

During the current unprecedented pandemic, we have all had to grapple with the now, and the future. Concern is the most common emotion on the present and future of the lighting industry. How will all the different players adapt? This discussion is the first of its kind for the region led by experts within the lighting industry – from the independent designers to the brands & supply chain. They will share the stage in discussing both the positive and negative impact on:

  • Regionally: Timelines, Quality & Accessibility - The design & product perspective
  • Personnel & Resources: Pros & Cons - What has COVID-19 adaptation meant on individual and team efforts
  • Technology: Design, Product, Code & Knowledge - What does it mean moving forward?

The session will also have time for audience involvement in Q&A.
