LFI 2012 Conference announced

The May 2012 Lightfair conference in Las Vegas is scheduled to cover critical industry topics as well as provide workshops for daylighting.

11/22/2011


Set to take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the 2012 LFI Conference program will align with topics addressed on the show floor as well as within the industry. The 2012 program will present 72 breakout sessions—totaling more than 220 hours with AIA, ASLA, IDCEC, IES, and NCQLP accreditation—offered in the LIGHTFAIR Daylighting Institute, the LIGHTFAIR Institute, the Conference seminars and the Design Symposium, which launched in Las Vegas at the 2010 LFI Conference.

The LFI curriculum offers seven educational tracks, providing a comprehensive program that covers critical industry topics, including LEDs, OLEDs, Product Updates, Controls, Net-Zero Buildings and Homes, Lighting Design, Lighting Art and Museums, Daylighting, Energy Modeling, and Standards for SSL:

  • 9 LIGHTFAIR Daylighting Institute Workshops;
  • One 2-day Daylighting Fundamentals course;
  • One 1-day course on Daylighting & Photosensor Control Systems Modeling in Daysim;
  • 16 LIGHTFAIR Institute Workshops;
  • Five 2-day LIGHTFAIR Institute courses including in-depth software courses;
  • Four 1-day LIGHTFAIR Institute courses
  • 4 Design Symposia
  • 32 seminars.

LFI will offer seminars in the Retrofit and Update track, introduced last year, focusing on a significant and timely subject of discussion for the lighting industry. This track concentrates on technologies and strategies for lighting and design in buildings or projects that already exist. Presentations will explore the challenges and advantages of integrating new lighting fixtures, controls and infrastructure into existing buildings to improve the visual environment, energy conservation and efficiencies.

Designed to educate attendees on the industry’s latest trends, innovations and solutions, the LFI Conference program covers a broad range of today’s most relevant topics. 

The LIGHTFAIR Daylighting Institute and the LIGHTFAIR Institute take place as part of the Pre-Conference program Monday, May 7, to Tuesday, May 8; the Conference will run Wednesday, May 9, to Friday, May 11.
