In view of the increasing spread of the coronavirus in Europe and after intensive consultations,
Messe Frankfurt has decided to postpone Light + Building. The world’s leading trade fair for
lighting and building-services technology will now be held in Frankfurt am Main between the
middle and end of September 2020. The cooperation partners of the international trade fair, ZVEI
and ZVEH, support this decision.
The unexpected appearance of Covid-19 in Italy since last weekend demanded a new analysis of the
situation in close cooperation with the public-health authorities of the City of Frankfurt. More and
more travel restrictions are being put into place thus making it difficult for both visitors and
exhibitors to attend the fair. Therefore, the organisers have decided to postpone Light + Building.
This decision is supported by the cooperation partners of Light + Building, the Electrical
Installation Systems and the Light Working Groups of the Central Association of the German
Electrical and Electronic Engineering Industry (ZVEI) and the Central Association of German
Electricians (ZVEH). The foremost Italian associations also back this decision.
New dates: Light + Building in September 2020
Light + Building is the sector’s most important meeting place for architects, the industry, the
installation and retail / wholesale trades, and planners. As an innovation forum and
interdisciplinary market place, it not only facilitates business and making contacts but also helps
ensure a sustainable future. The industry has left no doubt that it absolutely needs this platform for
doing business. Accordingly, Messe Frankfurt wants to ensure that the opportunities created by
Light + Building remain available to all market participants in the current season. Therefore, Light
+ Building 2020 is being postponed and will be held in Frankfurt am Main between the middle and
end of September 2020.
