Like your favorite TV series that shifts to a new time slot, the IES Annual Conference is on the move. The conference now takes place during the summer, the 2018 event slated for August 9-11 at the Westin Boston Waterfront, in Boston, MA.

As always, professional education is paramount. Lighting professionals will have their choice of various CEU credits through participation at the conference.
