Why Attend the AC?

The conference begins Thursday evening August 6 — Opening Night — with the Illumination Awards Gala, followed by two exciting days of accredited educational programs, networking, skill sharpening, product demonstrations as well as time to relax, enjoy the camaraderie of your peers, catch up with old friends and meet new people.

Theme

The theme for the 2020 IES Annual Conference is Hindsight / Insight / Foresight. This expansive theme explores our relationship to light, both historically and looking toward the future. The objective of the conference is to provide educational sessions and experiences relevant to the audience of lighting professionals, academics, and other related design disciplines. This year’s theme is intended to spark the conversation about how light is used, how light affects the user, and how we see that relationship evolving as we move forward. In addition to speaker presentations, the Conference program will also consist of technical papers and posters on a wide range of lighting-related topics.
