Technology Forum

Technology Forum of Light + Building

Location: Hall 12.1, D86
Organizer: ZVEI (Central Association of the German Electrical and Electronic Engineering Industry) in cooperation with Messe Frankfurt

To facilitate professional dialogue between exhibitors and visitors, the ZVEI (German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association) is organising the Technology Forum, in collaboration with Messe Frankfurt. This goes hand in hand with the shift from a components exhibition to a trade fair for suppliers of systems. The focus of the lectures and discussion sessions will be on digitalisation, the smart home / smart living, building automation, BIM, lighting and lighting technology, as well as energy-efficient heating technology in homes and buildings.

In the forum, experts from the ZVEI’s member companies will discuss product developments and new systems, together with changes to the relevant standards, on a vendor-neutral and cross-product basis. Lectures on technical issues will highlight both background and trends, providing tips and guidance for specialists.

On the last day of the fair, ‘my eFuture’, an event sponsored jointly by the VDE (German electrotechnology association) and the ZVEI, will pick up on the problem of the lack of suitably qualified young people joining the profession, and put students and companies in contact with one another.

The ZVEI has been a partner of Messe Frankfurt for many years and is represented by its own staff at the Technology Forum in Hall 12.1.

The programme can be found here.

Please note that lessons will be held only in german language!
