Expanded Opportunities Await

Introducing the IALD Immersive Lighting Installations! This new on-site activation gives architectural and commercial lighting manufacturers the opportunity to participate in creating Immersive Lighting Installations, opening new doors for exposure on the show floor. LightFair enters this year with a new perspective on spaces like IES Live and the IALD Designery, as well as hosting a variety of onsite design-centric opportunities.

Welcome Back, NYCxDESIGN

Building on the success of the 2021 partnership with NYCxDESIGN, the collaboration returns in 2023, expanding your reach with audiences focused on the latest in lighting design. LightFair’s market reach alone generates millions of impressions for our exhibitors — by combining forces with NYCxDESIGN and offering a 50% registration discount to their community of designers, specifiers and creatives, we are exponentially increasing LightFair’s visibility among the decision-makers you want to reach.

2023 Debut! Co-Location with ICFF

LightFair 2023 will also draw energy from a new co-location with the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), North America’s leading platform for contemporary furnishing design. The event, which shares trade show dates with LightFair on May 21, 22 and 23, attracts an audience of 10,000 architects, interior designers, retailers, distributors, developers and press. Exhibitors can look forward to meeting more of their target audiences under one roof — and more leads qualified and ready to do business.

Evolving for a Brighter Future

LightFair is a guiding light for the industry as it shines in a new way. The EdisonReport’s latest poll showcased tremendous support from the industry.

When asked, “Do you support LightFair’s decision to host the show every other year?”

84% support the decision

Exhibitors from across the industry show their support in this iconic move.

“Brownlee is thrilled to announce that we will be exhibiting in 2023 and hopes other factories step up and do the same. LightFair has listened, I think the industry should too.”

“Since 2004 Crestron has been exhibiting at LightFair, starting with a modest 10x20 booth in New York all the way up to our 40x50 Zūm packed booth this year in Las Vegas. LightFair 2022 was evidence that this organization and the show are here to stay. We are looking forward to being back in New York in 2023!”

Jim Benson
