The 27th edition of Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition (GILE) will take place alongside the 19th Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology (GEBT) at the China Import and Export Fair Complex from 3 – 6 August 2022. Dedicated to advancing the lighting and building sectors, GILE and GEBT will take full advantage of the synergies between different industries. The two exhibitions will bring together 1,288 brands from 13 countries and regions, across 110,000 sqm of exhibition space, including 11 show halls. 
     Under the theme "New Era, New Opportunity", the fair aims to encourage lighting practitioners to forge ahead with their aspirations. With the dynamic changes currently taking place, new opportunities are being presented to the lighting industry.

In addition, the fair will host over 500 fringe events covering diverse topics, which will encourage industry players to use new ways of thinking to explore new business opportunities.”
