LightFair Trade Show offerings will extend beyond exhibits with 15 “LightFair Live” sessions—education and awards events presented on the exhibit floor—June 21-23, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“Education and innovation are mainstays of our ever-evolving industry,” says Dan Darby, show director. “LightFair Live offers 15 more opportunities to learn from exhibitors and industry leaders who are raising the bar in lighting.”
LightFair Live includes four award ceremonies recognizing excellence in product innovation and booth design. Two of the events are LightFair specific: the LightFair Innovation Awards, which celebrate lighting’s best in innovation and design, and LightFair’s Best Booth Awards, which celebrate exhibitors with a brilliant product and branding display.
The additional two award ceremonies are: the National Lighting Bureau Tesla Awards, which honor lighting projects that provide High-Benefit Lighting or lighting that promotes human performance, health and wellness, safety and security, commerce and the reduction in light pollution, and the IALD International Lighting Design Awards, which honor lighting design that reaches new heights, moves beyond the ordinary, and represents excellence in aesthetic and technical design achievement.
