After one year of waiting and careful planning, the 25th China (Guzhen) International Lighting Fair (GILF) will be held at Guzhen Convention and Exhibition Center, Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province, from October 22 to 26, 2020. With the great support of the Zhongshan Municipal People’s Government, the fair will be co-sponsored by the China Association of Lighting Industry (CALI) and Guzhen Town – China’s Lighting Capital and organized by Guzhen Lighting Expo Co., Ltd.

A Strong Exhibition Platform of Eight Venues Covering the Industry-wide Chain
After the pandemic outbreak, the lighting market fell into a short low tide period before ushering at dawn. As increasing market demands emerge in the second half of the year, especially in the third quarter, the lighting fair held in October will surely elevate the peak season of the lighting industry to a new height.
Keeping a foothold on the source of an industrial cluster valued RMB 100 billion, the GILF makes full use of its advantages in the locality, business climate, and talents to deepen the modes of “cooperation between exhibition and lighting megastores”, “network transportation” and “having exhibition halls in front and factories behind”. Guzhen Convention and Exhibition Center, as the main venue, join hands with 7 sub-venues (Lihe Lighting Expo Center, Huayi Plaza, Star Alliance, Lighting Era Center, Besun Lighting Plaza, Huayu Plaza, and Streetlight City) to build the great GILF. The exhibition space of 8 venues reaches over 1,500,000 sqm, presenting 2,500 high-quality exhibitors. It collaborates with the B2B trading platform DENGGLE.COM to further integrate and consolidate GILF platforms and extend the chain of exhibition services.
The GILF Gains Popularity among Exhibitors by Virtue of Scientific Partition of Exhibition Areas

Great Efforts Are Made in Promoting Original Design and Developing Smart Lamp Poles
In the context of smart cities + new infrastructure construction, a huge number of 5G bases will be built in China, and the construction of smart light poles can effectively reduce the costs and improve the efficiency of the overall city operation, and further enhance the urban management efficiency.
As an exhibition platform dedicated to guiding the upgrading of industrial technology, the GILF has actively seized every opportunity in the smart lighting industry to develop smart light poles and followed the tendency of 5G and new infrastructure construction in Guzhen, in order to achieve the goal of “buying smart street lamps and launching 5G pilot programs in Guzhen”.
Meanwhile, the GILF advocates original design and encourages exhibitors to display their latest original products, mainly mainstream personalized, customized, modularized, and diversified original products. It also pays attention to product innovation and reform during the epidemic period and comprehensively exhibits the frontier wisdom and creativity of China’s lighting industry. Zhongshan Fast-track IP Enforcement Center (ZFIPEC) set up a workstation in the fair to protect intellectual property rights in an all-round way.
Promote Industry Development both Online and Offline and Realize Accurate Production-Marketing Coordination by Launching Customized Services
In view that many overseas buyers are unable to visit the exhibition due to the epidemic, the Hosted Buyer Program Go Online will be held concurrently with the offline exhibition to provide an opportunity for Chinese enterprises to trade and communicate with global buyers uninterruptedly.
In March this year, the GILF launched an innovative online exhibition named Lighting e Fair on the B2B trading platform Denggle.com to gather the exhibitors and buyers in the cloud. In October, the Global Buyers Sourcing Online Exhibition further launched an exhibition trio: factory show, on-site booth, and B2B Denggle.com-EZBUY. With 2,500 exhibitors participating in the exhibition concurrently online and offline, this activity allows buyers to visit the exhibition online and communicate with supplier regardless of time and space constraints, and builds a three-dimensional exhibition window for export enterprises to seamlessly connect with overseas buyers, thus promoting efficient and quick trading between the supply and requisitioning parties.
The new purchase platform EXBUY combines big data recommendations with accurate manual screening to pick out matching suppliers for buyers from thousands of high-quality manufacturers. In doing so, it spares buyers the vexation of screening products and helps reduce the costs and improve the efficiency of enterprises. Many suppliers even reach out to buyers by providing products and quotes.
Live-streaming Events and Wonderful Forums Set a New Ideological Trend
The GILF has been committed to guiding innovation and upgrading and leading the industry trend. Wonderful forums held during the exhibition will gather professionals from the upper, middle, and lower reaches of the industry as well as new technologies, new modes, and other areas to share with them the latest trends and prospects of the lighting industry and optimize the policy chain, the information chain, capital chain and industrial chain of the industry, thus creating an upgraded version of the international exhibition.
They include the 5G+Intelligent Light Pole Industry Development Forum, the Seminar on the Quality and Safety of Lamps for Primary and Secondary School Students in Guangdong Province and Quality Promotion Campaign of Guangdong Lighting Electric Equipment Hospitals, the Intelligent Agricultural Lighting Innovation Forum, the Lighting Industry Salon “Smart Home Benefits the Future” and the 7th LED Pioneering Conference.
Besides conference forums and new product release conferences held in the main venue and sub-venues, the GILF will carry out a series of online lectures on the lighting industry titled “Denggle on Line” jointly with Cali-light.com, which provide new ideas for industrial transformation and development through webcasts before the event and live broadcasts during the exhibition.
Optimization and Comprehensive Upgrading Measures Facilitate Innovative, Secure and Intimate Services
At such a global event that gathers thousands of buyers, supporting services and work is extremely important. In order to effectively contain the epidemic and ensure the safety and health of all participants, the GILF upgrades its pre-registration system by adding the real-name registration process according to the Requirements of Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council. All people entering the exhibition shall go through the real-name registration and face recognition processes. Everyone shall present their ID cards before entering the site.
