Philips keynote sponsor at Doha summit
Doha, February 22, 2012
Royal Philips Electronics has announced its participation as a keynote sponsor at the 3rd Annual Concept Middle East Summit, which opens today (February 22) in Doha.
The event is a customised, professional design platform, targeting interior designers, architects, construction consultants, city municipalities and government authorities. It will come to an end tomorrow, said a statement from Philips.
Abdo Rouhana, head of Philips Lighting University Middle East, will present ‘the benefits of LED Technology’, and the session will cover the different indoor and outdoor uses of LED innovations, its trends and its biological, as well as psychological effects in applications like hospitals and schools.
“The uses of LED solutions are vast, and the differences it can make are huge. LED innovation can distinguish offices, beautify outdoor spaces, provide hotels with a unique ambience while reducing carbon emission, saving energy and lowering costs”, said Paolo Cervini, general manager, Philips Lighting, Middle East and Turkey.
“For example, the world of offices and people’s working lives are rapidly changing. LED lighting offers great support for these changes, such as: freedom of shape and design, use of colors, dynamic effects, and creating spaces for enhanced people comfort and well-being”, he said.
Philips LED innovations are also used in schools and hospitals to improve biological and psychological effects, the statement said.
People who have to stay in the hospital often feel anxious, and many times not at ease. This could make examination processes more difficult and time consuming. The LED lighting can create more colorful and soft ambiences that makes the environment seem less clinical, which is beneficial for how people feel and for the quality and speed of the diagnosis process.
All Philips LED solutions are designed to significantly reduce energy consumption without compromising the light level, including extended lifetime that eliminates frequent lamp replacement, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
