Fifth Annual LED Specifier Summit Returns to Chicago as Two-day Event

Navy Pier will be the backdrop for certified education and sourcing from more than 175 manufacturers.


ATLANTA - LED Specifier Summit, the popular annual conference and product showcase featuring the latest commercial, architectural and design-forward lighting solutions, returns to Chicago’s Navy Pier Nov. 14-15, 2017. Historically a one-day event, the new two-day format helps address participant demand for more time to meet with exhibitors.

“The decision to expand the show to two days came directly from feedback from our attendees,” Show Director Lea Tranakos said. “The event has a loyal and growing following, and as the number of exhibitors has increased over the years, participants indicated their desire for additional time to spend with the lines on the show floor.”

In addition to visiting more than 175 manufacturers, attendees will be able to participate in a selection of peer-reviewed educational sessions, including 18 paid seminars and six free on-floor workshops. Led by the industry's top speakers, the sessions will cover subjects pertinent to professionals in the fast-changing world of commercial lighting. Seminars are registered to provide a variety of learning units, including AIA, IDCEC, ASLA, NCQLP and BOMI. One- and two-day conference packages are available for $295 and $395, respectively. “Exhibit Hall Only” passes are free to qualified attendees and include the networking reception on Nov. 14 as well as on-floor workshops both days.
