Cutting costs through effective lighting initiatives and environmentally- friendly illumination systems are just a small selection of the topics to be addressed at Light Middle East 2011.

The exhibition, which has been rebranded Light Insight Arabia, will run from September 12-14 2011 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Ahmed Pauwels, Chief Executive Officer of Epoc Messe, who has organised the event said in a report carried by, "This is a niche and highly specialised show which deserves the place it holds in the calendars of some of the world's leading architects, lighting consultants and designers."

He added, “The event brings together some of the world's leading experts in the field to discuss hot topics in terms of environmental care. Our Light Middle East team strives to keep abreast of industry trends and as such, the latest and most up to date topics are presented during the three-day conference."

Kevin Lander, General Manager, MENA region for the Zumtobel Group, gold sponsors for the conference, said: "At Light Middle East we will showcase some of our most efficient lighting solutions. We consider the exhibition to be an essential platform for reaching out to the emerging markets of this region. The industry is still considered to be in its infancy here, particularly in terms of efficient lighting solutions, but with the vast array of projects in development, it is also a region which holds immense potential."
