the Trade Association for lighting equipment
manufacturers/supplies active in the
UK lighting market
As Europe’s largest lighting Trade Association our mission is simple. To strengthen the industry and promote the benefits of good quality lighting by representing all aspects of UK, EU and international legislation and standards at the highest level whilst protecting the interests of both the public and Members.
We aim to create a strong brand that promotes good quality lighting and adds value in all applications supported by high quality training and greater communication which will in turn stimulate demand for lighting technology and quality products.
The Lighting Industry Association was formed in January 2012 from the merging of the Lighting Industry Federation and the Lighting Association and with it 175 years of combined experience in representing the lighting industry in the UK and internationally.
Designed from the bottom-up and driven by Members for the benefit of Members. As a result the Association is able to quickly respond and adapt to the changing Memberships needs and expectations.
