LIGHTFAIR International 2015 Breaks All Records
LIGHTFAIR® International (LFI®) 2015 broke all registration and trade-show records with double-digit growth marking the largest staging in its 26-year history, according to Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., vice chairman, president and chief operating officer of LFI managing partner AmericasMart® Atlanta.
“The convergence of light and technology is a defining factor in LFI’s 2015 unprecedented success,” notes Portman. “For more than a quarter century, LIGHTFAIR has created the world’s global stage for lighting and design innovation. At LFI 2015, technology emerged as the omnipresent force linking innovation and design in transformative ways,” Portman adds.
LFI’s 2015 five-day run in New York May 3—7 posted an all-time trade show floor record with 268,580 net square feet housing 599 exhibitors, including 108 first-time exhibiting companies and 110 manufacturers headquartered outside the U.S., according to Rochelle Richardson, CEM, LIGHTFAIR International vice president. “The 2015 trade show depth, breadth and diversity captures the holistic nature of LFI’s expanding exhibitor mix,” Richardson observes.
LFI 2015 registration grew to 29,900, a 15% gain over the previous record set in 2014, with representatives from 89 countries.
LIGHTFAIR International is presented annually by the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD, www.iald.org) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES,www.ies.org). The event is produced and managed by AMC, Inc. (www.americasmart.com).
