Ignoring Change is How We Become Irrelevant: Emerging, Converging and Disruptive Lighting Technologies

Thursday, January 26th 12:00 PM ET

New technologies that impact our lighting community are emerging, converging, and disrupting business as usual. Some are poised to reposition lighting from prominence in the built environment to being assimilated by other industries. LEDs are mature and as that aspect of our market slows, convergence with other trades accelerates.

Why do lighting events feature EV charging products? Are the internet, telecom, HVAC and electronics companies assimilating our industry? Are lighting manufacturers still innovating? The next revolution in lighting is underway and it portends to be larger and faster than the SSL revolution.

How do you position yourself securely during a seismic shift? Anticipating change helps us to prepare for it. Ignoring change is how we become irrelevant. This session will address the changes we currently face, how they will affect skill sets in our lighting community and suggest new skills that will be needed in the next decade and beyond.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
