The Middle East is an important export market for UK lighting companies and Brexit has put an even greater focus on this market.
Building on the past successes of the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) and with its status as a Department for International Trade Challenge Partner the LIA will return for its fourth year to Light Middle East 2016 (17-19 October, Dubai) with its UK Pavilion.
This Pavilion gives Lighting companies a cost effective way to experience, what may be a new market to them. It also illustrates the strength and importance of the UK lighting sector.
The LIA have negotiated an attractive package for those qualifying for a DIT Grant (subject to approval) which has benefited around 40 companies over the past 3 years.
This package is offered to the whole UK Lighting industry and the LIA are here to support you at the show and throughout the process.
