The June 21-24 edition of Lightovation – Dallas International Lighting Show will feature a full day of seminar programming focused on new technologies and opportunities for lighting showrooms involving connected lighting and the smart home. Presented in partnership with the American Lighting Association (ALA), all sessions on Thursday, June 22, will be part of the Lightovation Speaker Series: Connected/Smart Home and will take place in the Light + Technology showroom (TM 4808), a future hub for exhibits in that category.

The day will conclude with a hospitality hour aimed at encouraging collaboration between the lighting industry, the interior design trade, residential technologists, remodelers, builders, and kitchen and bath designers.

Additionally, ALA will host two sessions on Wednesday, June 22, and Friday, June 23, that will detail research on how consumers shop for lighting, plus the lighting needs for aging and low-vision populations. These sessions will take place in the ALA Seminar Center (WTC 345) and are offered to ALA members for $49 and $79 for non-ALA members. All educational sessions on all three days will earn accreditation toward ALA Certified Lighting Consultant (CLC®) status.

The Lightovation Speaker Series: Connected/Smart Home, in partnership with ALA, includes the following sessions:
