The World's Largest Annual Lighting Conference

The Pre-Conference LIGHTFAIR Institute® and LIGHTFAIR Conference five-day program features 78 course offerings and more than 130 speakers.  The 2015 program includes 11 Institute courses, 15 Institute workshops, 29 seminars, two Conference workshops, five Forum seminars, 12 60-minute sessions, two 30-minute Power Lunches and two Lunch & Learn seminars – totaling more than 210 hours with AIA, ASLA, BOMI, IDCEC, IEEE, IES and NCQLP accreditation.

NEW FOR 2015

LFI Controls & Connectivity Forum

The new LFI Controls & Connectivity Forum will take place on Wednesday, May 6 and it will cover current and near-future research with case studies that showcase best practices for the present and future.  This educational experience includes five 90-minute seminars led by subject matter experts.  Topics covered are lighting and shading controls, zero net energy, building automation, Industrial Internet of Things convergence, intelligent and integrated buildings, sensory networks, digital addressability, wireless technology, software and more.

Shorter-Length Course Options

In-demand shorter-length educational offerings will also make their debut at LFI 2015.  Attendees can add 60-minute sessions and 30-minute Power Lunches to enhance their learning experience at LIGHTFAIR.  The 12 one-hour sessions May 5-7 cover topics such as: design, smart buildings, art lighting, infrastructure, urban installations, color rendition metric, marketing, LEED v4, retail lighting, sustainable lighting strategy and LEDs.  The two half-hour Power Lunch options on May 6 offer a condensed version of upcoming Conference courses on controls and LEDs.

Focus Areas/Tracks

The LIGHTFAIR 2015 Conference provides knowledge and perspectives on how a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach can improve design outcomes for the betterment of the human experience through four focus areas/tracks:

LFI 2015 Focus Areas
  • Inspiration – Rule-breakers, trailblazers and visionaries dramatically influence our industry.  Sessions provide a synthesis of factors from inside and outside of the established lighting community.
  • Applications Research – Scientific analysis related to how we interact with the environment around us informs design.
  • Technology & Tools – Innovative lighting equipment, software, studies and legislation are introduced every year.  Using these elements to shape the design, or enhance and challenge the collaborative process, builds a stronger solution.
  • Methodology – Processes using collaborative, interdisciplinary approaches can result in more effective project solutions.  Working together and exploring diverse methods can streamline these processes.

Course Accreditation

LFI courses give you the knowledge you want and the CEUs/Learning Units you need.  Course options have been carefully developed to cover a wide array of the most relevant topics in the industry and provide AIA, ASLA, BOMI, IDCEC and IES accreditation (upon individual association approval). ASLA members should check with local chapters regarding national accreditation. Completed AIA forms will be sent it to the AIA by LFI as the provider.
