The New Exhibitor Pavilion is set to showcase first-time exhibitors from around the globe in its 2012 debut at LIGHTFAIR International (LFI), the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, which opens May 9 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.
The Pavilion, newest in LIGHTFAIR’s growing stable of featured collections, creates a unique assemblage of exhibitors new to the LFI stage and featuring products and technological advances targeted to the architectural and lighting design industry.
“LIGHTFAIR International is the global showcase for lighting innovations,” said Rochelle Burt, CEM, vice president of LIGHTFAIR International. “Our LIGHTFAIR 2012 attendees and exhibitors will experience first-hand the cutting-edge technologies, products and educational offerings that define lighting design and integrated solutions for the industry for years to come.”
To accompany the New Exhibitor Pavilion, attendees can participate in the first-ever Passport Program by visiting specific first-time exhibitors in the New Exhibitor Pavilion and enter the daily raffles for a chance to win the new iPad® and/or grand prize, a MacBook® Pro.
In addition to exhibitors in the New Exhibitor Pavilion, there will be first-time exhibitors located throughout the entire trade show floor.
