The technology of Light Emitting Diodes (LED) is not new, but its application in lighting technologies is. With the development of high-efficiency and high-performance LEDs it has become possible to use LEDs in lighting and illumination. This kind of lighting technology has shown a very fast and interesting development. It is very flexible and consumes much less energy than conventional lighting systems do. A building‘s carbon footprint from lighting can be reduced by 85 percent by exchanging all incandescent bulbs with new LED lighting. The LED professional Symposium and Exhibition (abbreviated: LpS 2011) takes place from the 27th to the 29th of September, 2011 in western Austria. It is being organized by Luger Research, and the venue is the „Festspielhaus“ (Festival House) in Bregenz.
This meeting of experts from all over the world is planned to become an annual event because LED lighting technology has a big influence on the development of new lighting solutions and is applied in all areas of lighting. It aims to be Europe‘s foremost LED lighting technology meeting point for lighting experts operating in industry and research.
