Let's Talk Lighting! Trade Show, Conference and Networking.

Welcome to LightFair.

Let's shape the future of our industry, together.

LightFair is the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, managed and produced by the International Market Centers (IMC), and also co-owned by the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES). The three parent organizations are equally invested in the show's growth and success and actively collaborate to provide the most sought-after platform for our industry to come together and advance.
As the world's largest annual event for the convergence of lighting design and technology, we bring together 500+ exhibitors and 24,000+ guests each year. Each year, the event delivers expanded learning and networking opportunities, providing increased value to exhibitors and attendees.
Exhibitors: We invite you to showcase new designs & technologies, promote your brand and connect with industry professionals who continue to specify product throughout the year.
Attendees: Our goal is to provide you with the education, inspiration and connections you need to stand out and stay ahead. We invite you to make the most of every opportunity and your time here.
LightFair 2021 will be staged at Javits Center, New York during the city's annual celebration of design, NYCxDESIGN, alongside international high-end and contemporary furnishings tradeshow ICFF.
We look forward to seeing you at the show!
