Hello there, Illuminator!

What words come to mind when you think of LightFair? 

Recently, we directed this question to a focus group. Some of the answers we got included "Community", "Energy" ,"Fun", "Complete".  We hope they resonate with you too. 

Another word that defines us is partnership. The combined vision, mission and strengths of our co-owners IES, IALD and IMC and their partnership makes us a show like no other. Partnership drives the lighting industry - relationships between end users, communities, multidisciplinary professionals, reps, agencies, distributors, manufacturers, innovators, researchers, trendsetters and thought leaders ...nobody works in a silo. We rely on one another, learn from and perhaps even compete with each other. In times of crisis we come together to support one another, give to a common cause we all care about. We are part of an intricate, interdependent network and are more resilient because of it. 

Here's to partnership. As the stories in this issue will show, the only way forward is together. You will have the opportunity to strengthen, renew and build partnerships at LightFair this June 19-23 in Las Vegas. See you there!

Supporting Sustainability
April is Earth Month. We are grateful for environment-conscious lighting professionals and exhibitors, vendors, facility, accommodation and transportation partners who support sustainability initiatives not just during LightFair, but throughout the year.

Material Transparency

Material Transparency
The built environment is responsible for nearly 40% of all global GHG emissions. Besides energy efficiency, holistic project goals must consider aspects like materiality ideals across the architectural, engineering and consultant teams. It all starts with specifiers learning to ask the right questions of manufacturers and reps, according to Melissa Mattes who led an industrywide survey on the subject.
