Get the latest news about the Lichtwoche Sauerland.
The date for the 11th Lichtwoche Sauerland is now official: from 05 to 10 March 2023, the exhibiting companies of the industry will again present their latest lighting and luminaire trends in the beautiful Sauerland region.
As adverse as the last few years have been and as extreme as the current future prospects are, Lichtwoche Sauerland establishes its constant format and once again offers manufacturers, importers and retailers of residential lighting an efficient and attractive platform for exchange. "Of course, no one can say exactly how the trade situation and the consumer climate in our society will develop as prices rise," notes Wolf Hustadt, who has again taken on the task of spokesman next year. "But Lichtwoche Sauerland is indispensable for business success - especially in an increasingly difficult social environment."
Dennis Köhler, who has also taken over the organization of Lichtwoche Sauerland next year, confirms, "The industry uses various trade fairs to keep in touch with customers. However, some formats and fixed sizes of the trade fair landscape are proving to be no longer useful for some players. Several companies have decided to rethink their presence and rely more on the efficient format of Lichtwoche Sauerland."
So companies in the industry definitely see a ray of hope in Lichtwoche Sauerland, which makes them look forward to spring 2023 with confidence. The concept has been known and loved by customers and exhibitors for 18 years. For a whole week, the suppliers' innovations can be experienced in great showrooms. Surrounded by the hospitality and feel-good factor in the Sauerland region. And after more than two years of pandemic, the organizers are also looking forward to the highlight of the Lichtwoche Sauerland again: the big customer event LightNight.
After a long break, the Sauerland is finally saying again: Welcome to the Region of Light! Welcome to an exchange which - with due caution - will again take place in person! In the region, where the suppliers for light and lighting are closer together than in any other, the innovations of the lighting industry will again be made tangible within the framework of the Lichtwoche Sauerland. And this for the tenth time! The exhibitions are all prepared, in order to receive finally again locally a picture of trends and developments of the industry. To talk face to face with manufacturers and dealers without losing the personal through webcams or microphones. And especially: without diminishing the atmospheric impression of the light.
Because, among many other things, the pandemic has made it clear how important direct contact between manufacturers, distributors, buyers and resellers is and remains. Much can be shifted to the digital space, but the personal between the players, the experience of atmospheric light and the touching of materials remain crucial factors that cannot be replaced by bits and bytes. The pandemic is not yet over, but with appropriate hygiene and protection measures in place, the health and safety of all visitors and exhibitors will be kept firmly in mind.
However, not everything is going the same way in Sauerland as in previous years: our popular LightNight will have to sit out the 10th anniversary of the Lichtwoche. But even if the party is and remains an important element for exchange, the one-time renunciation will not be able to diminish the success of Lichtwoche Sauerland. Lichtwoche Sauerland is one of the most important meeting places for the lighting trade in Europe. Get a picture of trends and products. Use your time in the beautiful Sauerland region to visit the leading suppliers - because almost the entire market for decorative lighting is gathered in the region again this year! We wish you a successful visit! Stay healthy!

Dennis Köhler Organization and Realisation
Not everything is going the same way in Sauerland as in previous years: the popular customer event LightNight will have to sit out once during the 10th anniversary of the Light Week.
Even if the party is and remains an important highlight, the one-time waiver due to the Corona situation will not be able to diminish the success of the Lichtwoche Sauerland, however.
Feel well in the Sauerland, enjoy the time and stay healthy!
