Sponsor an EP TodayA full day EP Workshop including networking, speakers, and tours will be held on Thursday, August 10 prior to the opening of the IES Annual Conference in Portland. Many students and Emerging Professionals require financial assistance to attend. We have young people giving up their precious free time to learn more about lighting. It is critical for our industry and our local Sections to respond by embracing their enthusiasm. These EP’s will be our future Board Members and Leaders!

The EP Event has grown in popularity from just a handful of participants in 2011 to over 70 in 2016. Our goal is for the funding to keep up with the applications for IES EP Sponsorships. This is why we are requesting your support and help again this year.


Platinum Level Sponsorship: $8,000—this funds four Emerging Professionals to attend the Annual Conference

Gold Level Sponsorship: $6,000—this funds three Emerging Professionals to attend the Annual Conference

Silver Level Sponsorship: $4,000—this funds two Emerging Professionals to attend the Annual Conference

Bronze Level Sponsorship: $2,000–this funds one Emerging Professional to attend the Annual Conference

Special Sponsorships are also available – please ask!

If you believe deeply in the value of educating and connecting our EP’s, please consider sponsorship. Our goal is simple: fund each student or Emerging Professional and help them become a life-long lighting partner.
