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.
