We were able to share a common space with colleagues and friends where we highlighted that the national industry is strong, robust and prepared to meet the needs of the market”.

The discussion and professional training had a prominent space

As in each edition, the BIEL Academy was developed where the most important entities in the industry gave professional update conferences on energy, lighting and electrical installations. Meanwhile, the exhibitors offered technical talks, live product demos and gave an overview of the market situation.

For its part, the Argentine Association of Residential, Industrial and Commercial Electrical Installers (AAIERIC) presented “AAIERIC Experiences”. Within this framework, it carried out various demos, conferences, interactive games and informative talks, aimed at installers, technicians, engineers and students.

Another of the great attractions of the exhibition was Espacio LumiAR, developed jointly by Messe Frankfurt Argentina and the media 90+10. There, six design brands led by Argentine artists, designers and architects presented their latest projects and offered a glimpse of the current panorama of national lighting.

Young people were also main players of this edition

More than 1,600 young people were present and witnessed the potential of the sector. They had the opportunity to get closer to the industry and learn about each stage of the value chain.
