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.

“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.

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/
