Announcing The Remanufacturing Lighting Conference

Remanufacturing Lighting Conference Recolight PRESS RELEASE logoClients, both corporate and public sector, are warming to the concept of reconditioned lights to achieve both sustainability goals and cost savings. And now tenders are beginning to emerge which specify that reconditioning and reuse of luminaires is an option in a project. This unique conference will take you through the opportunities and the challenges, and equip and inspire you for your remanufacturing journey!

The special one-day Recolight conference is focused on the remanufacture of lighting equipment. It will take place in London on 27th April 2023 from 10:30 – 16:00.

“Remanufacturing is set to be a fast-growing area of the lighting industry as customers increasingly ask for the option of upgraded products,’” says conference chair Ray Molony. “We’re seeing in the tech industry the rapid destigmatisation of reconditioned products and attitudes are rapidly changing.”

Aimed at manufacturers, suppliers and specifiers, the presentations will give delegates vital insights to help drive their businesses forward and ensure they stay at the forefront of the sustainable lighting revolution. Commenting on the importance of the event, Simon Fisher of F Mark says:

“Whilst remanufacturing is not a new phenomenon, 2023 will be a landmark year in which this practice will become a credible alternative to simply replacing for new.”

The low attendance cost reflects this, and is set to cover administration and venue hire.”
