TOKYO – Green lighting technologies will be featured at the second LED/OLED Lighting Technology Expo – also known as Lighting Japan 2010 – which will be held at Tokyo Big Sight, the nickname for the Tokyo International Exhibition Center.

Organizers from Reed Exhibitions Japan Ltd. say the show is a crucial part of a company’s global business and network expansion strategy. During last year’s show, 16,395 visitors and 218 exhibitors attended, many from Taiwan, South Korea and mainland China. This year, 25,000 visitors and 400 exhibitors from around the world are expected to participate.

Lighting Japan will be held concurrently with Finetech Japan 2010, which will include the second International Touch Panel Technology Expo, known as Touch Panel Japan. Other concurrent events include two newly launched exhibitions, the Nanoimprint Technology Fair and the Highly-functional Film Technology Expo. A total of 1,100 exhibitors and 88,000 visitors are expected to take part in all the events.

Industrial events – from technical seminars to a VIP party – are planned for exhibitors and visitors. The seminar and conference program will cover a number of areas. One Lighting Japan keynote session, “National Policies upon Next-Generation Lighting Development,” will focus on expectations for LED lighting as well as on Japan’s efforts to realize a low-carbon society. Nobumori Otani, parliamentary secretary of the environment and a member of the House of Representatives, will give the lecture.

The second keynote talk, “National Policies of China on the SSL Industry,” will be given by Wu Ling, general secretary of the China Solid State Lighting Alliance. She will highlight Chinese government efforts in promoting the solid-state lighting (SSL) industry.
