New Knowledge Connects the Industry to the Future at Lightfair InternationalThe world’s top thought leaders from the realms of light, design and technology will share their expertise at Lightfair International 2017 in an all-new conference curriculum spanning the spectrum of contemporary theory and practice.

Taking place in Philadelphia, PA over five days in May, the conference will bring the global lighting, design and technology community’s most influential voices to the Lightfair stage in a program offering 77 courses totalling more than 190 education hours. The event begins with the pre-conference Lightfair Institute on May 7-8 and concludes with the conference and trade show on May 9-11.

The 2017 conference program features new speakers, compelling keynotes and informative education sessions in a robust array of courses and topics. Highlighting the conference are two leading-edge forums that will explore some of the newest advancements in the industry — IoT & Smart Lighting Forum and Light & Health Forum. Each all-day forum comprises six one-hour sessions that delve into the innovative developments driving the industry forward. Sessions will be available as a package or à la carte.

The IoT & Smart Lighting Forum explores the benefits of connectivity that drive lighting and technology ahead. Session topics include connected lighting, intelligent building, facility design, cyber security and city impact. This forum complements the 2017 launch of Lightfair’s IoT Pavilion and Intelligent Lighting Pavilion on the trade show floor.

The Light & Health Forum outlines the impact of light on biological health and well-being and addresses current issues such as the potential for blue light as a hazard. Sessions cover circadian light, blue light, independent living facility design, 24-hour lighting environments, and hospital lighting.
