North America’s largest architectural and commercial lighting tradeshow and conference—LightFair—returns to the Javits Center in New York in May 2023.

Tradeshow: May 23-25
Conference: May 21-25

LightFair 2022 drew more than 10,000 people from 63 countries to source new products, advance their knowledge and connect with other industry professionals, say organizers.

The 2023 edition is expected to continue this trend, and expand the event in several ways:

• Four manufacturer teams will be matched with a New York-based lighting design firm to create “interactive, vibrant installations” based on the 2023 theme “Circular Economy”.

• The Design Pavilion becomes the IALD Designery, featuring panel discussions, town hall-style member meetings and student events.

• A partnership with NYCxDESIGN will highlight the best lighting design in the city, with experiential studio tours and a panel discussion at The Designery.

• The LightFair LIVE stage will have a new name—IES Live—and new programming. The lineup will include 3-D light fixture printing, meet-ups with conference speakers, a Shark Tank-style sales competition, and special Q&A sessions.

Conference presenters and topics will cover five broad themes: Business, Process, Art, Science, Technology.

NOTE: Starting this year, LightFair shifts to a biennial schedule. Meaning, the next LightFair will not occur until 2025 (likely Las Vegas).

REGISTRATION for LightFair 2023 opens February 1.
