Why Attend

Why you should attend the 3rd International Street Lighting +Smart Controls Conference 2017

Council CEOs, CFOs and Asset Managers throughout Australia and New Zealand face a common set of challenges: how to harness the newly available LED road lighting technologies and smart control techniques, to quantify the relative performance, and to make procurement decisions that indemnify councils from technical and operational risk. This conference provides a rare and stimulating opportunity to meet with a large number of overseas leaders, local specialists and industry peers to discuss issues and solutions that specifically target the needs of the New Zealand and Australian road lighting communities.

Building on from the Success of the 2014 & 2015 New Zealand Road Lighting Conference

Continuing the award winning format and exceptional results (Rating 9/10) from the NZ Road Lighting Conference 2015, the 3rd International Street lighting + Smart Controls Conference cannot be missed.  If you are into street lighting – or just need to know more about it – this conference is a must attend. More than 95% of attendees surveyed after the last conference event said they would attend again, rating the conference ‘excellent’ across all categories.
