Light building  2018: Solution for smart urban living

Smart living – the digitalization and interlinkage of different aspects of life – is an important cog in the system of tomorrow’s intelligent city. It was only last March that, together with numerous companies and trade associations, the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (Zentralverband Elektrotechnik- und Elektronikindustrie e.V. – ZVEI) and the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie – BMWi) founded the ‘Smart Living Initiative’, the aim of which is to make Germany a leading market for smart-living technologies. New at Light + Building 2018 will be the revised structure of the programme of events with a subdivision into four main categories –Emotion, Skills, Career and Selection – making it easier for visitors to orientate themselves by areas of interest and take part in the programme in line with their individual goals at the fair. Visitors to Light + Building 2018 will also find a variety of smart-living solutions at the exhibition stands. In addition to the exhibitors’ presentation, the 2018 E-House (a realistic house with 100 m2 of space organised by the Central Association of the German Electrical and Information Technology Trades (Zentralverband der Deutschen Elektro- und Informationstechnischen Handwerke – ZVEH) will also reflect this theme. Smart living is not only of interest to the younger generation. In view of the process of demographic change and the growing number of single households, this aspect is also of growing significance for older people who, thanks to intelligent technology, have the chance to remain independent longer.
