We also have a variety of presentations that can help attendees learn to work more efficiently and effectively with LED technology in their projects from both a design perspective, as well as a controls platform. All of our topics cover current hot issues in the LED market including the current and future state of LED fixture development to the financial aspect and challenges of working with LEDs.”
The annual educational expo hosted by the DLFNY is one of the industries longest running events dedicated solely to LED Technology. It continues to gain a regular following each year. All sessions are eligible for Continuing Education Units (CEU) and are scheduled in four different sessions each day for the total cost of $25 for access to all sessions and the Trade Show Expo.
