Philips Shows New York What LED Lighting Can Do for the Home

April 13, 2012

NEW YORK, April 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

    WHAT:     First Philips Lighting brought LED light bulbs to your home, and now they are bringing
              them to New York with the Philips LED Light Experience, a fun, educational and free
              interactive mobile exhibit. The Philips LED Light Experience will provide hands-on
              exhibits for visitors to explore what LED light can do for their homes and see firsthand
              where science meets style - with light bulbs.

              Consumers can learn how LED bulbs are made, what makes them so different, as well as
              getting great tips on how to make their house brighter and "greener," with energy-
              saving, long-lasting white-light AmbientLED bulbs from Philips.  They can also learn
              designer tips on how to use long-lasting AmbientLEDs to give the home a "lightover".

    WHY:      Consumers are eager to learn for themselves the benefits of LED lighting technology and
              the Philips LED Light Experience shows them firsthand the comparison - side-by-side -
              of the quality of the new, energy-efficient LEDs vs. standard incandescent bulbs. The
              interactive mobile exhibit provides an inside glimpse into the inner workings of the
              industry-changing Philips AmbientLED A19 bulb, which consumes just 12.5 watts - or 80
              percent less energy - than the standard 60-watt incandescent bulbs they were designed to
              replace.  The new Philips AmbientLED A19 will also last 25,000 hours, or 25 times longer
              than the standard incandescent.

              This spring, the interactive mobile exhibit will make 13 tour stops in 12 U.S. cities at
              retailers, trade shows, festivals and other events. For a complete listing of dates and
