Running for the sixth year in a row, the 2018 Australian Smart Lighting Summit will bring participants the latest news on urban, street, public and outdoor lighting from across the industry. Annually attracting over 150 delegates, this year’s summit will provide over 35 Australian and international-based speakers the platform to present on and discuss the technological innovations, long-term sustainability and implementation surrounding exterior lighting.

This year’s summit, being held on the 11th & 12th September at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, has been tailored to reflect an all-inclusive range of topics prevalent to public lighting; including but not limited to, human centric lighting, funding opportunities, connected lighting, smart pole technology, sustainability and street light replacements.

Participating in this distinguishable lighting event allows delegates the opportunity to network with industry peers while exploring the aesthetically pleasing, architecturally sound and visually captivating lighting technologies on show for the duration of the summit.

With keynote presentations covering intelligent street lighting, sustainable lighting retrofitting and the ever-expanding Internet of Things, the Australian Smart Lighting Summit is once again the lighting industry’s must-see event.
