(USA) – New lighting trade event to take place on 21-22 September in Dallas, TX.
Event organiser Dallas Market Center has announced that exhibitor registration has opened for ArchLIGHT Summit, a new lighting trade event and educational platform for architectural, specification and design communities.
The first edition of ArchLIGHT Summit will take place on 21-22 September 2021 on the first floor of the Dallas Trade Mart building.
For exhibitors, the show will present an opportunity to reach the architectural, specification and design communities seeking commercial lighting brands that represent the leading edge of innovation and technology. For attendees, ArchLIGHT Summit will feature hundreds of commercial lighting brands, as well as the opportunity to explore permanent showrooms of residential/commercial crossover brands already located inside the marketplace.
Early-bird booth rates are available for a limited time, with special pricing available for a choice of two booth sizes. To accommodate demand, each brand is limited to a single 10’x10’ booth, or maximum of two 6’x10’ booths, although there will be a wait list for additional requests. Custom sponsorship and marketing packages are also available to increase visibility.
The show’s mission is to create something “fearlessly new”, driven by three progressive goals: “Showcase Only The Best. Be Boldly Inclusive. Be Radically Playful”. To accomplish these goals, the show is working hand-in-hand with industry thought leaders on shaping the show with a diverse group of perspectives, as well as creating hands-on product interaction and forward-thinking seminars and sessions.
ArchLIGHT Summit will include a full slate of seminars, hands-on lab learning and panel discussions, offering architects, lighting designers, specifiers and interior designers timely and accredited sessions on evolving lighting issues and solutions. Attendees will also be able to experience engaging displays and learning labs, receptions and tours within the permanent lighting showrooms participating in the show. A full schedule will be announced in Spring 2021.
The show will be co-located with Dallas Design Week, providing additional CEU and networking opportunities for attendees of both events. Meanwhile, show organisers are working closely with an Advisory Board of distinguished industry leaders, who are providing valuable perspectives for shaping this event and its educational programming. Members include: Francesca Bastianini (Sighte Studio); Andrea Hartranft (Hartranft Lighting Design); Archit Jain (Oculus Light Studio); Kelly Roberts (Wald Studio); Craig A, Bernecker (The Lighting Education Institute); and Kevin L. Wallace (DSGNworks).
Confirmed associate partners include American Lighting Association, Lighting Controls Association, National Lighting Bureau and Women in Lighting + Design.
