DOE Educates and Informs at LIGHTFAIR

May 19, 2011

The DOE Solid-State Lighting booth welcomed record crowds and standing-room-only audiences at its training sessions during LIGHTFAIR® International, held May 15–19 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. LIGHTFAIR is the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference and is co-sponsored by the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America and the International Association of Lighting Designers. This year, over 20,000 lighting design, architectural, and engineering professionals converged in Philly to tour nearly 500 exhibits and soak up the latest lighting innovations and education.
