The IES Street & Area Lighting Conference is the only conference of its kind dedicated to improving the outdoor lighting business of electric utilities and energy service companies. We continue to provide an open forum for end-users facing the same questions regarding relevant products for specific application, lighting controls, bench marks from other users in the lighting community, and milestones reached by municipalities, utilities and DOTs. We strive to maintain a small community feel, creating a great opportunity to network with industry peers through seminars with speaker Q+A, breakout sessions to discuss issues in-depth, an exhibit hall and many networking events with speakers and peers in a comfortable and open atmosphere.

Design for Color and Illumination

When developing a lighting design, lighting specifiers determine the lamp and fixture combination that best suits the design’s requirements based on many factors. While some considerations are largely technical, such as power consumption, the amount of light generated, and how light is distributed, one consideration is both technical and artistic and can be approached in a number of ways. Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Museum Lighting and Lighting for Fine Art

The paradox of museum lighting is that the same spectral energy used to illuminate museum displays also causes fragile materials like pigment, fabric, wood, and metal to deteriorate.  This presentation will provide insight into how to utilize IES’s new Recommended Practice for Museum Lighting (RP-30-17) to deal with the conundrum of preserving light sensitive materials while providing a dynamic visitor experience.  This presentation will be richly illustrated showing how to employ light so museums may be better seen, understood and experienced.  Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
