The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and International Market Centers (IMC) recently announced that LightFair 2021 has been postponed. The annual showcase of new innovations in lighting design moves to October 27-29 and the accompanying educational conference will take place from October 25-29 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.
“Participation at LightFair is critical to advancing innovation in the industry, so we are dedicated to presenting the most advantageous tradeshow and conference experience possible. In 2021, that means moving to the fall,” says Dan Darby, LightFair show director. “When our industry reconnects physically after more than two years, we are committed to delivering a memorable and safe experience for everyone with incredible discovery, networking, and learning opportunities.”
Postponing LightFair until October will give exhibitors and attendees more time and flexibility to allocate budget and resources for the show, while allowing the country and world more time to stabilize and recover from the pandemic. Additionally, staging the tradeshow in 2021 allows specifiers to place orders to alleviate pent-up demand before the next scheduled LightFair in late spring 2022.
Registration information for the event will be announced mid-2021. For more information about LightFair 2021 Conference, visit the LightFair website.
