IES 2020 Street and Area Lighting Conference

CONFERENCE SCOPE
The IES Street & Area Lighting Conference is the only conference of its kind dedicated to improving the outdoor lighting business of electric utilities and energy service companies. We continue to provide an open forum for end-users facing the same questions regarding relevant products for specific application, lighting controls, benchmarks from other users in the lighting community, and milestones reached by municipalities, utilities and DOT’s. We strive to maintain a small community feel, creating a great opportunity to network with industry peers through seminars with speaker Q+A, breakout sessions to discuss issues in-depth, an exhibit hall and many networking events with speakers and peers in a comfortable and open atmosphere.

Despite the disruption we are facing, the IES is excited to bring you the opportunity to participate in the SALC without having to leave your workspace. We will leverage our technology to disseminate valuable, relevant and timely content. We hope you find this virtual conference insightful, beneficial, and of the quality that you have come to expect from the IES.

ABX 2020 – TH14: Demystifying Lighting from Specification to Installation @ Virtual - Platform and login details provided after registration
Dec 3 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

When it comes to the lighting design process, even seasoned professionals may not always be aware of all those involved outside of their own industry. From architects and engineers to manufacturers, distributors, product reps, and contractors—lighting design involves the expertise of numerous professionals across all fields. Ensuring successful lighting design means ensuring that all players involved are aware of what others are contributing at what stage of the process. “Demystifying” the roles, value, and expectations of all involved opens the door for more effective communication and specifications—critical to the delivery of a successful project that is consistent with the original design intentions. This workshop aims to equip both emerging and seasoned professionals with a better understanding of the process, greater confidence in their interactions with others involved, and a clear path to improving the specifications they provide.
