(USA) – In-person event moved to August, virtual conference still slated for 16-17 March.
Due to the continuing uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic, along with New York State and City restrictions on assemble, the LEDucation committee has announced that the in-person 2021 LEDucation trade show and conference will be rescheduled to 17-18 August.
The in-person event is slated to be held at the New York Hilton Midtown, and will continue to include multiple exhibition halls featuring a broad scope of manufacturers and suppliers from across the industry, as well as a dynamic conference programme.
“In a post-Covid-19 environment, LEDucation will continue to prioritise the health and safety of all attendees and will be run in accordance with official government and local authority guidance, as well as New York Hilton Midtown health protocols. This will include enhanced cleaning, non-contact registration, physical distancing, on-site medical staff, personal protective equipment, screening measures, and adapted conference rooms and sessions,” a statement from the event organisers read.
“LEDucation remains committed to keeping the lighting industry connected and will include a virtual component across multiple channels during the August show. Additional information will be available in the coming months.”
Originally scheduled to take place on 16-17 March, a virtual LEDucation conference will still take place on these dates, offering a variety of accredited webinars, all with a focus on solid-state lighting. A virtual online marketplace will also begin on 16 March that will enable registered attendees to review the latest products and technologies from exhibitors, free of charge.
