ATLANTA, GA – LightFair has launched the LightFair Blog, a new online journal covering important topics in the lighting industry, showcasing thought leaders and highlighting elements of the annual conference and trade show. The LightFair Blog is another development in LightFair’s commitment to providing a year-round platform for discovery, networking, learning and conversation. It joins the recently launched The future. Illuminated. in its new e-magazine format and redesigned LightFair.com as digital resources for education and inspiration for the lighting industry.
“As the leader in educational programming for the lighting industry, LightFair’s introduction of this blog is the perfect addition to our offerings. It is a showcase of the thought leadership that emerges from the LightFair trade show and conference and an opportunity for our industry to use LightFair as a resource all year long,” said Show Director Dan Darby. “We are grateful to the enthusiastic response to the launch of our e-magazine and look forward to presenting this new part of our brand.”
The LightFair blog and quarterly The future. Illuminated. e-magazine offer a range of voices, opinions, perspectives, case studies and other content to be informative, inspiring and thought provoking for the lighting industry. Contributors include past and present LightFair speakers and exhibitors plus industry professionals and members of the LightFair team.
