Tridonic LED drivers for Eat at Expo restaurants

Eating in stylish light

Location: Dubai/United Arab Emirates
Products: , LCA premium DALI LED drivers

Sustainability was at the top of the agenda at Ex-po 2020* in Dubai. That was especially true for “Eat at Expo”, a collection of around 200 restaurants, food trucks, cafes and food stands throughout the Expo 2020 site. Thanks to driver technology from Tridonic, the restaurants were easily able to ensure that their lighting met the high sustainability standards.

"Eat at Expo" represents around 200 restaurants and food outlets around the Expo site in Dubai. The luminaires in all the venues are equipped with premium DALI LED drivers from Tridonic and help to meet the Expo's high sustainability standards.

“Eat at Expo” stands for around 200 restaurants, cafes, food trucks and food stands at the Expo 2020 site. Sustainability played a special role at all these facilities because the exhibition management team was committed to concepts that were eco-friendly and saved on resources. The impact was to extend beyond the location and the duration of the event. The idea was also to inspire visitors to become part of the journey towards a more sustainable future.

Sustainable lighting for the restaurants

Eat at Expo was in line with this commitment to sustainability – especially since most restaurants would remain in operation after Expo 2020. This also influenced the lighting concept. “No Grey Area”, a Tridonic customer, had to ensure that the lighting design and materials for the restaurants met the high sustainability demands of Expo. The products used had to be of the highest quality, operate extremely reliably and be backed by excellent after-sales service.

The most important requirement at the Eat at Expo restaurants was that the luminaires should be dimmable to create a welcoming atmosphere and also save on energy. That is why the luminaires in the restaurants featured high-quality premium DALI LED drivers from Tridonic. As a result, the lighting concept for Eat at Expo could easily meet the high sustainability standards of Expo.

* Having been postponed owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, Expo 2020 took place in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022.
