Intersec Forum

Forums, Conferences & Networking

Expert lectures, presentations and discussion panels encourage exchange and are meeting places for personal encounters.

Forums und discussion panels are particularly in focus at the Light + Building Autumn Edition. There are two central meeting points with the Design Plaza in the lighting area in Hall 3.1 and the Building Plaza in the building service technology area in Hall 9.0. Both plazas combine a stage for lectures, discussion rounds and award ceremonies with adjoining special presentation areas and starting points for guided tours.

On the Design Plaza stage in Hall 3.1, the focus is on lighting trends every day: the designers of the bora.herke.palmisano style agency present in a daily lecture which colours, shapes and materials will determine lighting design in 2022 and 2023 and which social developments will have an influence. For a visual impression, the three trend themes are staged in the form of mood boards in the immediate vicinity of the stage.
