Lightfair International (LFI) has partnered with Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA), an international not-for-profit industry association that works towards advancing intelligent home and building technologies. As part of the partnership, LFI is the exclusive sponsor for CABA’s Intelligent & Integrated Building Council meeting and reception, scheduled for January 31 in Las Vegas.

“Lightfair International is a powerhouse of knowledge, resources and support for associations that impact the lighting, building and technology industries,” said Ronald J. Zimmer, president & CEO of CABA. “The partnership with Lightfair further enhances the benefits our members receive as part of CABA. We look forward to continuing to work with Lightfair and introducing our members to all that it has to offer.”

The event will bring together industry leaders to focus on and address the council’s mission of strengthening the large building automation industry through innovative technology-driven research projects.

LFI, an annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, will be present as both an attendee and sponsor. It will also showcase two pavilions on the trade show floor: the Building Integration pavilion and the Daylighting pavilion.

The Building Integration pavilion, launched in 2010, features companies displaying solutions and products that aim to create energy-efficient buildings; and the Daylighting pavilion focuses on architectural daylighting, daylight harvesting, energy efficiency and conservation, solar shading and natural light.

“As sponsor of this council meeting, we are not only supporting an association that helps drive our attendees businesses and the industry as whole, but we are also providing CABA members the opportunity to discover what Lightfair and its dynamic trade show and conference bring to the industry,” said Rochelle Burt, managing director of LFI.

The Intelligent & Integrated Building Council Meeting and Reception is on January 31 at the Renaissance Las Vegas, 4 p.m.-7:30 p.m.

Lightfair International runs May 15-19, 2011, at the newly expanded Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
