As might be expected given the current pandemic environment, LightFair International will be postponed until late summer or early fall. Officials from the trade show and conference made the decision due to “growing concerns around Covid-19, shifting industry sentiments, and an overall wish to preserve health and safety,” according to a statement. The event (which had been slated for May 3-7) will still take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, but at a later date this year and pending improved conditions.
“There is no question that the safety and wellbeing of all LightFair attendees come first,” says Dan Darby, Show Director. “We have been carefully monitoring the official updates and conferring with the leadership of IALD and IES, LightFair’s co-owners, on the best course forward. At this time, postponing the show is our most responsible action.”
LightFair’s decision to postpone the show comes seven weeks before its staging with the goal of allowing attendees, speakers, and exhibitors to update their plans adds Darby.
The 2020 trade show and conference will feature exhibitors showcasing lighting innovations, hundreds of hours of conference programming, plus an array of new attendee experiences and opportunities.
