A full day EP Workshop including networking, speakers, and tours will be held on Thursday, August 9th prior to the opening of the IES Annual Conference in Boston. Many students and Emerging Professionals require financial assistance to attend. We have young people investing their precious free time to learn more about lighting. It is critical for our industry to respond by embracing their enthusiasm. These EPs are our future!
The EP event has grown in popularity from just a handful of participants in 2011 to over 50 in 2017. This year, our goal is to fund each and every Emerging Professional that applies through the IES EP Sponsorship program.
