Conference Advisory Committee 2020

Meet the team behind this year's cutting-edge conference programming. A panel of experts from IES and IALD and our team at LightFair put a lot of thought and planning into each course, session and track, and selecting each speaker to provide you an impactful and relevant learning experience.

LightFair 2020 Conference Advisory Committee

Representing the IES and our lighting community for the past two LightFair annual conferences has been hard work and a real privilege. Through careful review, process and collaboration, the CAC adds a lot of experience and timely value to the content of each year’s event. LightFair 2020 will inspire you (as it has us) about the changes, trends and technology moving forward in our industry. 
- Joseph Belfer, Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) | Cerberus Consulting


Being involved in helping shape this year’s Lightfair education offering has been exhilarating. How wonderful and challenging the task of working through so many excellent submissions from around the globe. Collaborating with the advisory team was insightful and rewarding. The course offering is world class.
Robert White, IES | Illuminart


It is exciting to be part of curating an educational experience like the one at LightFair. While I believe the access to lighting education is more expansive than ever before, especially as the adoption of digital modalities grows, I don’t believe anything is more effective than face-to-face education. This year’s conference program proves to be one not to miss, and I’m grateful to the lighting community for providing so many thoughtful submissions to choose from.
- Brienne E. Willcock, IES


It is a privilege to collaborate with a team of multi-talented professionals to inspire and grow the lighting community. Together we selected a spectrum of topics to invigorate LightFair 2020. 
Donald Christensen, International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) | Christensen Lighting


I am impressed by effectiveness of the CAC team members and process. Prior to joining the committee, I pictured a much larger team to get the conference content organized.
