LuxLive to focus on Lighting for Building Services Engineers

The LuxLive 2020 Digital Festival is set to focus on lighting for building services engineers, say organisers.

The virtual educational event – to be held on Wednesday 11 November and Thursday 12 November 2020, the dates originally scheduled for the postponed LuxLive exhibition and conference – will update engineering professionals on the latest guidance, standards and best practice with lighting.


Dubbed the ‘most ambitious and comprehensive digital education programme ever seen in the industry’, the event will have a central theme of Health and Wellbeing, and include four main strands: Emergency Lighting, Smart Lighting, Workplace Lighting and the Lightspace Festival, focusing on lighting in architecture. Each strand will take centre stage at certain times throughout the two-day festival and will deliver compelling educational headline content.

Topics in the workplace strand will include human-centric lighting, colour tuneable lighting, how to light for productivity and wellness, how to achieve the WELL v2™ pilot standard and how to light a living ’green wall’.

The smart lighting segment will cover Bluetooth mesh, Dali-2, cloud-based lighting control and indoor location tracking using luminaires as well explore real-world case studies where intelligent lighting technology is helping clients achieve the operational objectives.

The emergency lighting strand will outline the responsibilities of building owners, wireless control and testing, how to do a risk assessment, the requirements of CIBSE’s Commissioning Code L and how to design emergency lighting in complex estates such as universities, social housing and care homes.

The Lightspace Festival will look at inspirational architectural lighting schemes from around the world. 

The event concludes with the popular Lux Awards, which is making its digital debut edition in the award’s celebrated history.

The event will also allow one-to-one meeting facilities, roundtable discussions, video presentations, live polling and Q&A sessions throughout.
