LightFair to Host Decorative Lighting Exhibits, New Design Theater

The LightFair Design Pavilion returns this October with decorative lighting exhibits and a new design theater—dubbed as the “Designery”—showcasing daily Design Synergist presentations, led by industry-leading lighting designers, architects, specifiers and interior designers, during the LightFair trade show Oct. 25 – 29 at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

“Education is one of the hallmarks of the LightFair experience, and we are thrilled to introduce the Designery in the Design Pavilion, where attendees are able to extend their learning past the conference into exploration of emerging innovations,” says Dan Darby, show director. “The addition of the Designery enables hands-on learning inside the Design Pavilion in the exhibit hall.”

LightFair’s Design Pavilion is a brand-new networking hub for connections, conversations and exploration in lighting design and education. Exhibitors in the Design Pavilion are required to showcase decorative fixtures and/or installations that are aesthetically driven and final applications. Exhibitors in the design pavilion are Access Lighting, Artika, Bock Lighting, Blackjack Lighting, Custom Contract Lighting, Jesco Lighting Group, Modern Forms and Oxygen. For more information on Design Pavilion exhibitors, visit the Design Pavilion Show Site.

Eleven one-hour long Design Synergist presentations will take place as moderated discussions, conversations, case studies, presentations and leadership panels in the Designery. Each session offers quality education on the trade show floor to attendees who may not have the opportunity to attend conference sessions. Select presentations offer CEU credits: Voices of WILD, 1.5 CEUs; Riveting Revit Enhancements and Other Lighting Design Digital Tools, 1.0 CEUs; Lighting Design +, 1 .0 CEUs; and Designed for Sex: Lighting to Enhance Dermal Features for Reproductive Behavioral Response, 1.0 CEUs. (NOTE: A full list of Design Synergist presentations follows.)

Access to Design Synergist presentations in the Designery is granted with trade show floor access. In addition to the eight exhibitors and 11 Designery sessions in the Design Pavilion, the trade show floor will showcase a total of 240+ lighting exhibitors.
