With over 200 companies exhibiting at this year ‘s LuxLive, it would have been a tricky task to see everything that the show had to offer. But worry not if you fear that you might have missed a gem. Here are what we consider to be the best of the bunch, the cream of the crop, from this year’s event.

Superlight Compact LED is a small, high performance floodlight range with all the advantages of the classic series.
