GUANGZHOU, China, Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's largest LED and LED lighting event will take place 16-19 September, at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC). LED CHINA, together with the 11th LED LIGHTING CHINA and 13th SIGN CHINA, will feature 1,300 domestic and overseas brands over 120,000 sqm. Riding on Shanghai's international status and the huge regional market it serves, the event expects to attract even more high caliber buyers from across the globe.

Over the last 11 years, LED CHINA as a true business platform has fostered the internationalization and development of the industry. Whoever embraces the opportunities it brings under the new economic reality will assume a leading position in the industry."
