Selection @ Light + Building brings together projects that make it easier for visitors to obtain a concentrated overview. Based on themes or objective criteria, guided tours, competitions and award ceremonies provide structured insights into the extensive spectrum of products to be seen.
Free guided tours offer an excellent opportunity to find one's way around the products on display and to enter into conversation with colleagues in one's own field.
Again there will be guided tours of the show for architects and planners (both in German and English), as well as for builders, operators, representatives of local and municipal authorities, including the staff of building and planning departments.More information
