Messe Frankfort, the show’s organization recognized LonMark International as an association supporter for three years in a row with a crystal plaque of appreciation. As the largest combined lighting and buildings show in China, this important event allowed LonMark to introduce the value of open, interoperable solutions to a broad audience.
