Lighting Africa 2010 Conference Report

May 18-20, 2010, in Nairobi, Kenya, Lighting Africa’s 2nd International Business Conference and Trade Fair

Held May 18-20, 2010, in Nairobi, Kenya, Lighting Africa’s 2nd International Business Conference and Trade Fair maintained its reputation as the premier event in promoting low cost, high quality off-grid lighting products and services in Sub Saharan Africa—with a target of low income populations. The first Lighting Africa Conference and Trade Fair was held in Accra, Ghana, in May 2008.
Lighting Africa 2010 gathered together more than 600 participants and 50 exhibitors, representing 51 countries from around the world. Since the first conference just two years prior, significant market developments have taken place, driven by the off-grid lighting sector and characterized by technical ingenuity, business model innovation, products tailored to meet consumer need, and stakeholder collaborations (industry, private and public sectors). Lighting Africa 2010 was a living manifestation of the momentum and enthusiasm that continues to mobilize and energize the sector to progress towards the provision of enhanced lighting solutions for Africa.
