Meet our exhibitors & sponsors for Circular Lighting Live 2023
“The lighting industry needs to leave behind the old idea of the linear economy that is built on profligate waste and a dangerous disregard for its consequences. The lighting sector’s demand for raw materials and energy means that adopting a radical approach to design, manufacture, and use can immensely benefit the UK’s sustainability agenda.
Events like the Circular Lighting Live offer an excellent opportunity for the industry to learn about innovations like 3D printing and adopting a more sustainable path forward, with the aim to become a force in slowing and stopping temperature rise and climate change.”
Nico van der Merwe, CEO UK & Ireland
“We are all doing our own little bit to protect the environment and maintain a sustainable future. Well here at ASD Lighting, we’re no different, which is why our lighting solutions are available with the ECOFINITY sustainable lighting scheme. We believe that this should be at the forefront of all lighting solution journeys.
At ASD Lighting PLC, we feel that sustainability is not just an environmental issue around product and transport but is also about socio-economic sustainability and corporate social responsibility.”
Nathan French | Director of Street Lighting | ASD Lighting.

Casambi ws founded in 2011 with the belief that smartphones and wireless technologies can fundamentally change the way we interface with everyday objects around us.
The Casambi solution is based on Bluetooth Low Energy, the state-of-the-art wireless technology and the only low power wireless technology in all modern smartphones, tablets and even smart watches, making it the only mainstream and future proof low power radio technology in the world. Bluetooth Low Energy was developed at Nokia Research Center where both Timo and Elena worked. That’s why Casambi has had the unique advantage in realizing the potential of Bluetooth Low Energy early on. Casambi started the development of the solution before there were any Bluetooth Low Energy devices on the market.
Today Casambi is the clear leader in modern wireless lighting control solutions based on Bluetooth Low Energy. Key aspects of the Casambi solution are great user experience, high performance and scalability from basic individual fixture controls to industrial-scale solutions with cloud-based remote control, monitoring and data logging.
