Competition was fierce at the summer LIGHTOVATION: Dallas International Lighting Show – organized by the Dallas Market Center in partnership with enLIGHTenment magazine – as more manufacturers submitted new product for consideration in each category than ever before in its history.
For the 2019 awards, 50 LIGHTOVATION exhibitors submitted 130 products in 6 product categories: Bath, Ceiling Fans, Chandeliers & Pendants, Outdoor, Portable Lamps, and Technology. In addition, each entry qualified for consideration in the first-ever Editor’s Choice Award, selected by enLIGHTenment magazine’s Editorial Director Linda Longo.
Here are the winners, as voted on by the largest participation of distributors to date.
