Lightfair International is the world’s largest annual commercial lighting and  architectural trade show and conference, and this year’s dates are May 7-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Co-owned by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), together they offer an outstanding blend of continuing educational courses combined with previews of innovative lighting products, that range from high-end design to new cutting-edge technologies.

With over 20,000 expected lighting professionals, this year’s trade show will be broken up into two sections.  Monday May 7th and Tuesday May 8th will be Lightfair International’s  ‘Institute’  featuring  educational  opportunities  on daylighting, general lighting, and CEU / LU / HSW accredited courses.  May 9th through May 11th is the actual trade show and conference, and this year’s line features a record breaking  475 domestic and international exhibitors  covering more than 200,000 square feet.
