Zeta Specialist Lighting, the Bicester-based research-led developer and manufacturer of LED and solar powered lighting systems has been selected to showcase its offer at Innovate 2015 the multi-sector technology showcase with global reach.
Innovate 2015, co-hosted by Innovate UK and UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), is a two-day global spotlight on innovation. It brings together some of the UK’s high growth, high potential businesses – each of which have to apply to secure a place – with international investors, buyers, leading academic institutions and global corporates.
Part of Export Week and the GREAT campaign, this year’s event, the largest multi-sector showcase of UK innovation, takes place 9 and 10 November at Old Billingsgate, London.
Zeta will use the show as the platform to launch SmartScape, a brand new range of high quality, innovative LED and solar street and area lighting solutions. Designed, developed and manufactured in the UK, at Zeta’s Bicester headquarters, the new SmartScape range delivers substantial energy and cost savings. One of the solutions on show will be SmartScape Heritage – an intelligent LED retro-fit solution that enables traditional heritage-style street lanterns to be retained, when upgrading to cost and carbon saving LED technology.
Innovate UK Chief Executive Ruth McKernan said: “Zeta is a deserved winner and joins a prestigious group of 100 top innovators showcasing their products at Innovate 2015. With attendees ranging from international investors, buyers and visionary entrepreneurs to government and academia, the showcase is a great platform for winning companies.”
Catherine Raines, Chief Executive of UK Trade & Investment, said: “Innovate 2015 is a fantastic chance for some of the most cutting edge companies in the UK today to meet international partners and do business.
“I am really pleased that Zeta will be among the hundreds of UK firms at the show as well as business delegations from all corners of the world.
“I look forward to welcoming them.”
