Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media (MF) recently acquired Thailand Lighting Fair and Thailand Building Fair, which will be held November 8-10 at Bangkok International Convention and Exhibition Center in Thailand.

Since the turn of the century, MF has established lighting and building fairs globally and is now present in 178 countries. The company will leverage its extensive experience, and alliance with ExhibiZ (another organizer of trade fairs in the region), to propel the Thailand fairs forward as leading events for lighting and building technology, design, and solutions.

“We are delighted to bring the Thailand Lighting Fair and Thailand Building Fair into a new era thanks to our partnership with MF,” says Pakwan Jiamjiroj, ExhibiZ General Manager. “With the company’s strong international reputation and experience, we know that both shows have the potential to grow immensely.”

The Thailand Lighting and Building fairs will be held concurrently with Secutech Thailand, a premier platform that showcases the latest innovations in security, smart homes, and fire and safety products. By hosting these events under one roof, the interconnected lighting, building, and safety industries will have access to an unrivaled one-stop sourcing opportunity.

“We are recognized around the world for our power to attract the best in the industry,” MF board member Stephan Buurma says. “Adding the Thailand Lighting Fair and Thailand Building Fair to this growing family will complement our existing shows by creating a synergy between the different lighting and building markets. The lighting industry in the region is already worth about $5 billion. The time to invest in Thailand and its neighboring countries is certainly now.”
