InterLumi Panama 2018 completed in a great success with expectations exceeded


The third consecutive edition of InterLumi Panama was successfully held from 11 to 13 July 2018 at ATLAPA Convention Center in Panama City, performing as the meeting point for the lighting and renewable energy industry in Central America and the Caribbean. During the three-day event, a total of 3,512 high quality visitors from 23 countries/regions attended. Over 85 exhibiting brands from 15 countries/regions participated to share the latest products and technologies.

“I think it's an excellent event. It is the first time I attend and I found it an incredible event for the development of lighting in Panama. This is the first year Panama Green Building Council cooperates with InterLumi. We are very happy to participate and we can see the fair has a lot of potential.” David Rodriguez, 2nd Vice President of Panama Green Building Council shared his opinion on the participation.

The event obtained an increase of visitors for more than 30%. This was the result of an innovative policy, which focused on offering the customer a high quality content - not only presenting products, but also sharing experiences of industrial trends and innovations.

The concurrent events of InterLumi Panama 2018 played a leading role. The third edition of Efficient Lighting Forum impressed attendees with a strong lineup discussing topics including lighting trends, smart cities and renewable energies. Each speaker selected a practical issue and shared their knowledge on it. A great amount of audience was attracted and praised the professionalism of the forum.

“The fair and the forum as such has grown year after year. This year we find world-class exhibitors, which favors the development of the region. We hope that InterLumi Panama continues to grow.” Said Mr. Martin Arcos Maldonado, whose company Schreder has exhibited for the third consecutive year.

On the other hand, the first Lighting Design Seminar was held on the first day of the fair. Co-organized with COARQ and presented by the president of APDI, Mr. Rafael Gallego, together with Mr. Mario Prieto, Director of smartLIGHTING and Mr. Luis Juan López, Director of Iluminet, the seminar exceeded everyone’s expectation. Over 130 professionals and students from related fields attended.

“I see that there is a strong group of speakers who are very well trained and give speeches on different areas related to lighting. I think it is a great opportunity to come and learn experiences from professionals around the world.” Commented Mr. Rafael Gallego.

The inauguration ceremony of InterLumi Panama 2018 was on the first evening of the fair. Inviting Governor of Panama Province, President of COARQ (Association of Architects of Panama), President of PGBC (Panama Green Building Council), Coordinator of Climate Change for Latin America and the Caribbean of the UN Environment and many other VIP guests, the ceremony was a great success.

America Expo Group is especially grateful to all the people who allowed this event to come true; exhibiting companies, visitors, governmental organizations, associations, chambers and all the staff that in one way or another collaborated with the realization of this project. Encouraged by the positive feedback of the year’s event, InterLumi will keep on promoting the knowledge of efficient lighting and renewable energies and connecting the Latin American market to the rest of the world. InterLumi Panama will see you in 2019 from 25 to 27 July in Panama City!
