LIGHTFAIR® International’s (LFI®) expansion accelerates in its 2013 Philadelphia showing with additional trade show space in Pennsylvania Convention Center’s Hall F—the new home of new categories solar power and software and the featured site for high-profile networking and special events.
The 2013 additions advance LFI’s continuing growth as the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, which is now approaching sellout. Creation and introduction of the new categories, together with significant expansion within existing categories, will produce the largest trade show in LFI’s 23-year history.
The debut of Hall F illuminates the future of new lighting technologies with a well-placed spotlight on a diverse and well-known lineup of exhibitors. The new solar and software categories naturally complement the core LFI product mix of the latest solutions and technological advances integral to the lighting industry’s broader reach into energy efficiencies and control innovations.
Hall F will be the gathering place for attendees with a robust networking schedule in the Spotlight Lounge including new events such as:
• LC Exam Study Group Forum - Hosted by the IES
• Panel with Paul Marantz and Paul Gregory - Hosted by LD+A
• Welcome Coffee - Sponsored by LIGHTFAIR
• Exhibitor Presentations - Sponsors are EMERGE ALLIANCE, SIEMENS and INTELLIDIMMER
• Lighting Design Certification Update - Hosted by the IALD
• Show Keynote: Vinod Khosla - Sponsored by SORAA, INC.
• Reunion Iberoamericana: Reception & Mixer
• Appreciation “Lunch in the Lounge” (complimentary lunch)

• Exterior & Roadway Lighting Pavilion Grand Prize Giveaway
