Street and Area Lighting Conference 2019

  • Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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.
