Lightfair has announced that its 2016 conference and tradeshow will take place in San Diego from Apr. 24-28 at the San Diego Convention Center. The yearly event alternates between the east coast and the west coast, and for the last decade New York and Las Vegas have been the two principal conference locations. In 2011, due to construction occurring at the Javitz Center in New York, Lightfair moved to Philadelphia. The success of that location and ongoing construction at the Javitz venue has prompted Lightfair to return to Philadelphia in 2013. The choice to hold Lightfair 2016 in San Diego was based on exhibitor and attendee feedback and research done through various surveys. No word has been made yet on whether Lightfair will return to New York in 2015 or remain in Philadelphia.
