For the Zumtobel brand, intensive face-to-face dialogue with and transfer of knowledge to its customers and business partners is essential. The three Light Forums and 14 Light Centers that Zumtobel runs provide an important communication platform. At these locations around the world, customers and employees alike can not only learn more about energy-efficient lighting solutions, they can also experience them for themselves in various applications. In the 2011/12 financial year the Light Forums and Centers welcomed a total of around 35,000 visitors, which is again more than in the previous year. The 15th Light Center opened in London in June 2012.
