Running for the sixth year in a row, the Australian Smart Lighting Summit 2018 is bringing participants the latest news on urban, street and public lighting across the industry. Annually attracting over 150 delegates, this lighting summit provides over 35 Australian-based and international speakers the platform to present on and discuss the technological innovation, long-term sustainability and implementation surrounding public street lighting.

This year’s programme 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, Smart Pole Technology, Smart City Sustainability and Street Light Replacement Programs.

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

With presentations covering intelligent street lighting, sustainable smart city retrofitting and the ever-expanding Internet of Things, the 2018 Australian Smart Lighting Summit is once again the lighting industry’s must-see event.
