InterLumi Announces New Strategic Alliances with Green Building Council and Zolicol


InterLumi Panama 2018, the international lighting and renewable energy fair that will be held from July 11th to 13th in Panama City, is pleased to announce two new strategic partnerships:


Alliance between InterLumi & Panama Green Building Council (PGBC)


Panama Green Building Council is part of the World Green Building Council. Founded in 1993, it is a non-profit (NGO) organization to promote sustainability-focused practices in the building and construction industry. Today World Green Building Council is a global network of over 70 Green Building Councils around the world.

“As an important player in sustainable construction in the country, our mission is to promote sustainability and change the way communities are conceived and buildings designed, constructed and operated”, explains Roberto Forte, Executive Director of PGBC, who will deliver the Economy and Investment Talk at InterLumi Panama 2018.

InterLumi and PGBC have joined efforts in order to achieve these objectives to have a greater impact. The aim of this cooperation is to raise awareness among decision makers in related industries as well as promoting the sustainability principles of the sustainable construction movement among developers, professionals and the general market.

“This is why PGBC seeks to prepare and educate the community for the changing and challenging market dynamics, to ensure the continuity of the market transformation towards sustainability”, Mr. Forte adds. Within the framework of this agreement, PGBC will promote the information of InterLumi through its channels and a representative of PGBC will participate in the opening ceremony of InterLumi Panama 2018.


Alliance between InterLumi & Colon Free Trade Zone (Zolicol)


The Colon Free Trade Zone (Zolicol) is a free port located at the Caribbean entrance to the Panama Canal in the province of Colon. It was established in 1948 as an autonomous institution and is considered the largest free trade zone in the Americas and the second largest free trade zone in the world. 

Focused as a regional distribution center, it offers a logistics platform integrated by world class ports, rail, highway and airport. It maintains the best connection to Central America, the Caribbean and the Andean Pact.

Within the framework of the cooperation, Zolicol will promote the information of InterLumi and a representative of Zolicol will participate in the opening ceremony of InterLumi Panama 2018. It is believed that InterLumi will be an outstanding platform to attract more customers to Zolicol and an excellent initiative in the field of lighting, renewable energy, construction, etc. The alliance between the two parties will surely bring great advantages to the market. 

Thanks to the new alliances, InterLumi expects to stimulate the development of the region’s lighting industry as well as provide training and business opportunities to companies into this emerging market.
