The IES Street and Area Lighting Conference appeals to a broad spectrum of attendees with a primary focus of improving outdoor lighting. The conference program provides outdoor lighting training classes, seminars, networking sessions and an exhibit hall. Attendees come from across the country and internationally representing utilities, municipalities, DOTs, consulting and engineering firms, research firms, manufacturing firms and educational institutions. The IES Street and Area Lighting Conference is the only forum specific to the interests and challenges facing outdoor lighting professionals.
Notice to Attendees
Amid the escalating COVID-19 positivity rate and increased travel restrictions, the Illuminating Engineering Society’s Street and Area Lighting Conference Committee announce that the 2021 Street and Area Lighting Conference (SALC) will not take place in person, and instead will be hosted in a completely virtual format.
- The dates for 2021 SALC have not changed. The Conference will be hosted October 11-13, 2021.
- All-Conference components – general sessions, exhibition, and breakouts – will be virtual.
- All of the Street and Area Lighting Conference sessions and virtual tradeshow will be available until midnight (EST) on Monday, November 1st 2021.
As always, the health and safety of the lighting community, including our members, staff, supporters, vendors, and volunteers, is our top priority. While this was a very difficult decision to make, it provides us with the opportunity to host a more inclusive event – enabling attendance by governmental or municipality employees and any others who are under travel restrictions, increasing our virtual exhibit hall space to allow greater participation, and providing unlimited access to interact with exhibitors throughout the duration of the event.
We’re looking forward to hosting attendees and exhibitors alike from the safety and comfort of your personal workspaces. We hope you find this year’s Street and Area Lighting Conference an insightful and valuable experience.
Please don’t hesitate to contact [email protected] with any questions you may have.
SALC is committed to the safety of its registrants and organizers. We continue to monitor federal and state guidance on face coverings, and intend to comply with applicable guidance at the time of the conference. Stay tuned to this website or the event announcements, we will do our best to provide prompt updates.
