LightShow West – the only trade show and educational conference specifically created for West Coast specifiers of commercial, architectural and high-design lighting products – saw attendance at LSW 2018 surpass all expectations for the show’s Las Vegas debut. LSW2018 hosted more than 1,700 qualified attendees, 215 exhibitors and a show floor of 28,800 net square feet.
"We had a great time at LightShow West!" said Heather Averett, senior lighting designer, Rocky Mountain Consulting Engineers. "There were some great speakers, and I learned something from every session I attended."
"You gotta see it before you spec it, and so LightShow West is where you come," said Tom Ruzika, owner of Ruzika Company. "I just saw some festoon lights that I really like. I hadn’t seen them before, so I got to touch them, got to feel them…that’s what I like about the show."
"I think LightShow West is in a great place and very, very well run," said Marc Shiler, professor of Architecture at the University of Southern California. "In fact, what amazed me was how quickly registration was accomplished. I registered online in advance and the line was never more than five people long, or a minute or two to register on‑site. The quality of the material shown was great."
"We are thrilled with the results of LightShow West 2018 in Las Vegas," said LightShow West Show Director Lea Tranakos. "The event exceeded our expectations for attendance, bringing in more than 1,700 lighting industry professionals from around the country. We are so grateful for our Las Vegas lighting agency sponsors: DECOLights, Inc., Design Concepts Inc., Nevada Lighting, Nevada Sales Agency, Pacific Lighting and Roth Lighting. The participating exhibitors, our advisory board members, speakers and all who attended collectively created two extraordinary days of lighting education and solutions."
Historically a biennial trade show and conference, LightShow West is now an annual event scheduled to return to the Los Angeles Convention Center September 25-26, 2019 and to Las Vegas in the fall of 2020. We look forward to seeing you there.
