Lighting Trade Shows, Conferences & Events

A full slate of lighting events add sparkle to the 2024 and 2025 calendars


As the lighting industry continues to evolve and innovate, professionals from around the globe will convene upon lighting and lighting-related events to share knowledge, showcase products and ignite the spark of creativity at several key events throughout 2024 and beyond. The line-up for this year and upcoming years promises a myriad of insightful conferences, expos, awards ceremonies and trade shows.

These events offer a unique platform for lighting designers, architects, engineers, distributors, contractors, installers, lighting agents and manufacturers to connect, collaborate, and cultivate new ideas. The networking possibilities are nearly infinite, and the potential for future collaboration and growth is illuminating.


Notable for 2024:
  • LightFair has become a biennial event, making 2024 the first year without a scheduled LightFair event in its history.

  • The shift in LightFair cadence now makes LEDucation the largest annual lighting event in North America.

  • The IES Annual Conference, now marketed as IES24 - The Lighting Conference, makes its triumphant return to New York City, set to take place at the Marriott Marquis from August 15 to 17, 2024.
