About Our Event

The 2019 IES Annual Conference theme will be Light.Affect / Light.Effect

This expansive theme relates to numerous aspects of how light and darkness affect our vision, health, behavior and experience. The objective of the conference is to provide educational sessions and experiences relevant to the audience of lighting professionals, academics, and peripheral design disciplines. This year’s theme is bringing focus to the powerful interrelationships between light affects and light effects. In addition, the Conference program will also consist of technical papers and posters on a wide range of lighting-related topics. Visit Konica Minolta Sensing and see why we are the leader in the lighting industry.
