All the days seminars can be found HERE , but of special interest to IES Members would be the following sessions:

View demonstrations of a number of LED ellipsoidal fixtures presented by manufacturers’ representatives, and view a side by side demo of the fixtures running a set of cues. Also discussed at this session, LED house light solutions.

Scott Miller of DWD Design and Richard Schick of Schick Shiner will discuss the process of putting together a new performance space. Learn the steps that are taken to develop a working theatre.  If you are looking at building a new space, or renovating your existing space, don’t miss this session. 

Fifty Shades of R80  3:30 PM

Fifty Shades of R80 continues the discussion of how stage lighting is changing with the advent of LED-powered fixtures. Additive color mixing gives designers the power to subtly manipulate color on a real-time basis. This session delves deeper into the nuances of color and presents examples of innovative control features that allow lighting designers to better handle the wonderfully variable — but sometimes non-intuitive — color capabilities of LED-powered stage lighting. 

We would like to invite the members of the Illuminating Engineering Society to attend these sessions and the Technology Show (1:00- 6:00 PM), and have arranged free registration using a discount code (applies automatically when clicking the REGISTER HERE button above.
