Final Countdown to Celebrated LEDucation 2023

LEDucation

February 21, 2023

The Designers Lighting Forum of New York is ready to launch the 2023 edition of the LEDucation Trade Show and Conference on March 7–8, at the New York Hilton Midtown. Thousands of lighting professionals are preparing for two days of vital networking, education, and discovering new opportunities and products.

“We’re counting down the days until LEDucation returns to its full pre-pandemic glory. Our goal is to bring inspiration, education, and excitement to the lighting community,” LEDucation Committee Co-Chairs Burt Grant, Metro Areas Sales, and Caroline Rinker, O’Blaney Rinker Associates, stated. “All signs indicate that the industry is just as excited as we are. We’re seeing a strong influx of prominent lighting designers and architects who will be in attendance, as well as distributors, engineers, interior designers, specifiers, energy consultants, and students from the US, Canada, and Europe.”

Over 380 exhibitors will be showcasing their latest innovations in smaller, intimate creative spaces on two floors of the NY Hilton Midtown event space. The booth layouts allow for a more personal approach for relationship building and have always proved to be a highly productive experience for exhibitors and attendees in past shows.

A networking event in the Trianon Ballroom (3rd floor) will take place Tuesday night at 6:00pm for all to unwind from the day with refreshments with colleagues, new and old. Thirty-six educational sessions, including virtual sessions on Monday, March 6th, appear to be attracting lighting professionals experiencing rapid change in the marketplace and in business operations. This exchange of ideas and aspirations will foster existing relationships and form new opportunities and networks.

LEDucation falls on International Women’s Day Wednesday, March 8th, and Women in Lighting Design (WILD) is partnering with LEDucation to call attention to this important day. We ask attendees to help by donning their best pink attire and turn color-changing lights pink. The WILD table, across from registration, will offer a wearable token to those who want to shine a light on discrimination and gender parity.

The 24th IESNYC Student Lighting Competition, presented by the Illuminating Engineering Society New York City Section will be held at LEDucation on Tuesday, March 7th in Americas Hall 2 beginning at 4:30pm. More than 100 students from New York City schools will be displaying their creative lighting projects based on the theme “Circle of Light.” This theme challenges students to construct a three-dimensional study, exploring how light plays a role in the cyclical nature of life.

Lighting pros and young people will network and enjoy refreshments while viewing the exhibition, and $9000 in cash prizes will be awarded at 5:30. The Competition showcases both MFA students and undergraduates from diverse educational tracks. Please stop by to welcome them before the exhibit closes at 7:00 pm.
