NAILD Annual Convention

Dallas, Texas
September 17 - 19, 2023



The National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors (NAILD) is a nonprofit trade association that has been driving lighting innovation through networking and education since 1977. Its mission is to provide members with tools, resources, and opportunities to grow their businesses profitably.

The NAILD Annual Convention, co-located with the ArchLIGHT Summit, is a highly anticipated event held at the Dallas Market Center. This arrangement offers NAILD members even more value for their membership, as they have access not only to the NAILD-exclusive portion of the convention but also to everything the ArchLIGHT Summit has to offer.

The Convention is a whirlwind of engaging activities designed to provide maximum value to attendees. The program includes keynote presentations from industry experts, speed networking events that allow for rapid and efficient connection-making, and roundtable discussions that encourage knowledge sharing and collaboration. The event culminates with the President's Dinner, a perfect opportunity for members to unwind and interact in a relaxed setting. This Convention is a testament to NAILD's ongoing commitment to drive lighting innovation by fostering a conducive environment for learning and networking.
