The ARC ShowThe ARC Show is the capital's most prestigious lighting show, shining the spot light on the global architectural, retail and commercial lighting industry. Bringing together the entire spectrum of the lighting industry for two days of sourcing, networking and celebrating, The ARC Show is simply a must attend event for lighting professionals. Launched in 2006, the exhibition has started to focus increasingly on sustainable lighting, showcasing the next generation of energy efficient lighting and technologies, and the brightest products from the healthcare and education sectors. Each year the list of exhibitors gets more impressive and sees familiar names such as Alliance Lighting, Crescent Lighting and Helvar Ltd return year in year out. Held at the Business Design Centre, in the vibrant surroundings of Islington, the show confidently promises to set the trends for the future whilst establishing London as the most design important hub in the world.
