The 26th annual LightFair International (LFI) will be staged in New York at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center May 3-7, 2015, according to Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., vice chairman, president and chief operating officer of LFI managing partner AMC, Inc. The 2015 location decision resulted from the unanimous vote of LFI partners the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) following independent LFI customer research conducted to determine the preferred East Coast venue.
LightFair, which is staged annually in alternate East Coast and West Coast sites, returns to New York for the first time since 2009, where it posted record-breaking attendance and a sold-out trade show floor. The show will return to a newly renovated state-of-the-art Javits Center largely transformed through a $465 million renovation and expansion project scheduled to be completed in 2014.
