Luger Research e.U. invites experts from the lighting industry to share their knowledge and latest findings at the foremost LED lighting technology meeting point in Bregenz, Austria.

The LED technology sector has been driven forward by numerous innovations and developments during the past year. The quality of light has been improved and power density markedly increased through augmented efficiency.

This fast paced market promises much progress and many innovations during the coming year. GaN-on-Silicon technology, various nano-technologies and new production methodologies are now ready to enter the market. However, Siegfried Luger (publisher of LED professional and Event Director of the LpS), warns that besides all these innovations the lighting industry also needs regulations and standards. He went on to say that these requirements greatly increase the significance of the Zhaga Standard for LED Light Engines.


In order to expedite development it is necessary to have a mutual exchange of scientific knowledge, discussions about promising solutions and a network that brings key players from the areas of science and industry together. This is the central idea behind the annual LED professional Symposium +Expo (LpS) in Bregenz (Austria), which has established itself as the leading LED lighting technology event in Europe. Apart from the numerous presentations in the fields of component, measuring and production technologies, the important topic of decreasing costs of research & development will be discussed by Menno Treffers, Secretary-General of Zhaga.

February 15th, 2013 is the deadline for lighting experts from academia and industry to hand in their abstracts for consideration if they want to present them at the symposium in September. Topic areas, content details as well as information about the selection process through the Advisory Board are explained at length on the event homepage Abstracts should be sent via email to:

LED professional Symposium +Expo: Europe’s central meeting point for LED lighting technologies

Quality has the highest priority

An extraordinary amount of positive feedback from exhibitors, visitors and speakers, confirms the exceptionally high quality of the event: “The range of topics was well chosen and the organization throughout the event was exemplary.  RECOM Electronic will definitely be back in 2013!”, said Stephan Wegstein, Marketing Director Lighting, RECOM Electronic GmbH.
