Lightfair 2018, taking place in Chicago May 6-10, brings together thought leaders from across the globe to deliver the newest knowledge imparting the future of light, technology, design and connectivity.
The five-day conference program will feature 72 courses with 121 speakers presenting the latest information and leading-edge concepts to attendees representing a broad spectrum of industries. A pre-conference program runs from May 6 to 7, and the trade show and conference will run from May 8 to 10. Over 550 exhibitors will be on hand at the trade show.
The conference tracks are Applications Research, Inspiration, Design Tools and Technologies, Core Knowledge, Design Strategies, Intelligent Lighting and Connectivity and Professional Development. Among the topics: daylight, IoT lighting systems, sky glow, restaurant lighting, tunable light specification, 3-D printing, intelligent buildings, retrofits, network security, medical facility lighting and Li-Fi.
For the first time ever, Lightfair 2018 will offer a smart cities forum. Smart cities are leading lighting into the Internet of Things (IoT), where lighting enables digital technologies critical to the expansion of city services. This forum will inform on relevant protocols, artificial intelligence, data analysis, case studies, and more. Participants will see how smart cities are leading the way to a connected future.
The Light & Health Forum will return for its third year. Light has been shown to impact humans well beyond providing for optimal visual performance. This forum continues to explore the non-visual effects of light not only on humans, but also plants and wildlife. Current knowledge of the impact of light on biological health and overall well-being will be addressed with more detailed exploration into the new metrics and design guidelines that are shaping circadian lighting applications.
Lightfair will continue to offer 60-minute sessions which feature a shorter course format while covering some of the industry’s most relevant topics such as daylight, IoT lighting systems, sky glow, restaurant lighting, tunable light specification, 3-D printing, intelligent buildings, retrofits, network security, medical facility lighting and Li-Fi.
