Press Release
Specialist lectures, workshops, LED FORUM MOSCOW – add-on
supporting programme of INTERLIGHT MOSCOW 2009

There is an increasing demand in Russia for light control technology and the use of lighting concepts in
architecture. Russian municipal authorities are investing large sums at present in the modernisation of
their street lighting and in the lighting of their residential buildings. Moreover, there is a continuously
growing interest in Russia for LED lights and LED-based technologies.
These trends in the Russian lighting industry are reflected both in the exhibitor portfolio and in the theme
of the supporting programme of INTERLIGHT MOSCOW 2009.
Since an increasing number of professional visitors of the leading international trade fairs for Russia and
the CIS states use the supporting programme, it would be supplemented to a large extent by specialist
lectures and workshops in the year 2009.

“Outdoor and street lighting” on 10th November 2009
On the first day of the trade fair, RosGorSvet is holding a conference on current developments and topics
in the field of outdoor and street lighting.
RosGorSvet is the Russian association for outdoor and street lighting. Its members supervise more than
1,000,000 lights all over Russia. The “All-Russian Conference on Street Lighting of RosGorSvet” is being
held for the first time this year as part of the agenda of INTERLIGHT MOSCOW. Experts on outdoor
lighting from all regions of Russia are participating in this conference.

“Light control systems” on 11th November 2009
The subject of light control is constantly gaining importance even in Russia. This development can be
attributed to two causes: On the one hand, the price of electricity is rising rapidly even in Russia. On the
other hand, the need for sophisticated and complex lighting applications is growing, especially for large
construction projects. The demand, above all, is for control concepts and lighting technologies to be used
in expensive and large constructions, but, nonetheless, even private households are showing growing
interest in lighting systems in the mid-price segment.
In the light of this development, INTERLIGHT MOSCOW is dedicating an entire day to the
subject of light control systems in its supporting programme. Among others, leading
companies such as Lutron, Legrand & Btichino and Osram would discuss the current
development status, technical standards and business opportunities in this important
segment in the course of various lectures and workshops.
                                                              15th INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR FOR LIGHTING,
                                                              LIGHT TECHNOLOGY & INTELLIGENT BUILDING TECHNOLOGY
                                                              EXPOCENTRE FAIRGROUNDS
                                                              NOVEMBER 10 – 13, 2009 IN MOSCOW

“Architecture and lighting concepts” on 12th November 2009
Light is becoming an increasingly important design element for architects. The Russian municipal
authorities, in the meantime, have been restoring and renovating many old buildings. The number of large
construction projects is growing constantly. As a result of this, Russian architects and light designers are
expressing a continuously increasing interest in architectonic lighting concepts.
This is why the organisers of INTERLIGHT MOSCOW are inviting international architects and light
designers to Moscow this year too, just as they had done in the year 2008. In the context of the theme day
“Architecture and lighting concepts”, among others, Simone Mariotto (Italian light designer) and Karsten
Winkels (German architect) would be presenting international trends and developments. In addition,
Paolo Spotti, Italian light designer in the field of architecture, would disseminate information in the course
of a workshop on the topic of “Light concepts for halls and facades” about the trends in European light

Supplementary special event: LED FORUM MOSCOW
The triumphant success of LED technology in Russia with annual sales of 52 million Euros is still in its
infancy, but, nonetheless, the demand for LED solutions has grown rapidly in recent years. This is why the
LED FORUM MOSCOW is being hosted in parallel to the INTERLIGHT MOSCOW event, with the former
being the most significant LED specialist conference for Russia and East Europe. In the year 2008, more
than 200 participants provided information on the state-of-the-art technology and the latest developments
in LED technology at the LED FORUM MOSCOW. Pursuant to the resounding success last year, the LED
FORUM MOSCOW 2009 has been extended to two days.
Detailed information regarding LED FORUM MOSCOW is available at:

Other events of the supporting programme of INTERLIGHT MOSCOW
In the years gone by, INTERLIGHT MOSCOW has developed into a platform for conferences and
discussions held annually. These events supplement the supporting programme already presented:
        The annual conference for young light technicians, organised by Prof. Dr. Artem Eremovitsh
        Ataev of the Academy for electrical sciences.
        The round table of the Russian lighting trade association (CTA)
        The contest on “Russian Light Design” of the Russian Institute for Lighting Research (VNISI)
