What is LIGHTFAIR® International?

The lighting industry changes on a day-to-day basis. It is always evolving into something better and more efficient. As lighting professionals, it is important for us to follow trends and keep track of all the innovations and advancements that are occurring. It is an industry very concerned with lighting the future, and doing it in the most effective and eco-friendly manner. Luckily, there is a conference that keeps everyone in the know, introducing new products, techniques and ideas to both the professional and public realms.

Have you ever heard of LIGHTFAIR® International? According to the official website, “As the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, LIGHTFAIR® International blends continuing education courses with innovative products ranging from high-end design to cutting-edge technology.” This year, Philadelphia had the privilege of hosting the conference from April 21 to April 25. Chances are the things people use ten years from now will have originated in a conversation at this conference. The attendees are some of the brightest people on the planet and the conference is like a philosophy salon in the 20th century.

The conference brings together many of the world’s premier lighting industry professionals and puts them all in one room where they discuss the future of lighting, how to manage LED costs, retrofitting buildings, city planning, conservation and much more! There are classes, lectures, workshops, keynote speakers and exhibits. In addition to lighting professionals, the conference attracts architects, urban planners and engineers. This year, there were special exhibits on decorative lighting and lighting control components.
