LEDucation, organized by the Designers Lighting Forum of New York (DLFNY), has announced its 10th Anniversary program for its upcoming conference and expo, which will take place March 29 – 30, 2016, at the New York Hilton Midtown. This year’s venue is a new location, a result of the event’s continued, overwhelming growth. In 2015, LEDucation received 3,200 attendees and hosted more than 260 exhibitors.

The new location also enables an expanded number of seminar sessions, and this year 30 different presentations will cover all aspects of solid-state lighting from technical issues to design topics. “To help us celebrate our 10th anniversary, we wanted to provide LEDucation attendees with more options than ever,” said Craig Fox, of ETC Architectural and LEDucation speaker co-chair. “We are proud to have secured some of the industries most accomplished and well-known industry experts that will be sharing their expertise in sessions spanning controls, design, technology, application and innovation.”
