Light Canada at IIDEX NeoCon 2010
By Anthony Capkun
IIDEX/NeoCon Canada returns to Toronto this September (22-25 for the Conference, 23-24 for the Expo), and while its mandate is to serve the interests of the interior design, architectural, facility management, real estate development and business communities, the real kicker of the event for EBMag is the Light Canada facet of the show.
And whereas Lightfair International is arguably the premier lighting
event for North America, Light Canada is—as its name applies—the premier
lighting event for us.
In partnership with the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES-Toronto
Section), Light Canada will showcase the latest in interior, exterior,
commercial and architectural lighting products, plus lamps and lighting
controls over 5000 sf of exposition space. With over 100 Canadian and
international exhibitors, Light Canada will deliver not only
cutting-edge design solutions, but will also showcase the monumental
advances in sustainable lighting, LED technology, new materials and
advances in lighting design.
Rounding out Light Canada, IES Toronto and IIDEX will offer a
CEU/LC-accredited seminar stream developed by industry experts covering
all aspects of lighting design, applications, technology and case
studies. The Light Canada seminar stream ensures seminar attendees are
up-to-date on the latest lighting education on lighting design,
engineering and technology.
Besides the education sessions, you’ll meet with top suppliers on the
exhibition floor; if memory serves, some of the names from years past
include Visioneering, Venture, Acuity Brands, Philips, Osram Sylvania,
CRS Electronics, Cristal Controls, Hubbell Canada LP, Standard Products
If lighting is remotely your thing—either because you design it, work
with it, install it, spec it… whatever—Light Canada is the place to be
this September at the Direct Energy Centre on the grounds of Exhibition
