ArchLIGHT Summit, the new lighting trade event and educational platform for the architectural, specification and design communities, has announced the schedule of speakers and events. The second edition, taking place September 15-16, 2022, will welcome attendees to review new technologies, network, and attend a wide range of CEUs from lighting and design/build thought leaders. The event website is www.archlightsummit.com

Over two days, attendees will have access to more than 25 seminars, discussions, and events offering timely and accredited sessions for lighting solutions, trends, and standards, but also addressing agency dynamics, diversity and inclusion, workplace evolution, and allyship.

Access to the ArchLIGHT Summit show floor is complimentary, and a $50 flat fee will allow attendees access to all education and hospitality events. The full list of speakers and schedule is now available at https://archlightsummit.com/events/. Attendee registration will open later this month.

“Our goal is simple: deliver content that is inspiring, meaningful, and practical,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “Our speakers represent top minds and talent in the field of lighting but also business experts and leaders for critical social issues.

The event schedule was shaped by ArchLIGHT Sumimit’s esteemed Advisory Board, which includes professionals and educators in the lighting, design and architectural disciplines. New Board members Michelle Cruz of Putterman Scharck and Shahad Niyazi Sadeq of AIA’s Springfield Chapter join veterans Craig Bernecker of The Lighting Education Institute, Andrea Hartranft of Hartranft Lighting Design, Alyssa Humphries Stewart of Texas Christian University, Archit Jain of Oculus Light Studio, Kelly Roberts of WALD Studio, and Laura McDonald Stewart of Laura McDonald Stewart Enterprises and Plinth and Chintz.

A limited number of exhibit spaces remain available for the 2022 ArchLIGHT Summit. Each exhibiting brand is limited to a single 10’x10’ booth or maximum of two 6’x10’ booths, although there will be a wait list for additional requests. Booth location assignments will take local and regional agency representation into account to optimize convenience for attendees and exhibitors. Custom sponsorship and marketing packages are also available to increase visibility, with complete information available at https://archlightsummit.com/exhibit/
