|The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) announces that the in-person 2020 IES Street and Area Lighting Conference (SALC), originally scheduled for October 18-21 in Dallas, TX, has been canceled and will be moved to a virtual setting.
IES’s priority is the health and safety of the lighting community, including our members, staff, supporters, vendors and volunteers. As the COVID-19 pandemic continued to unfold, it became clear that we needed to make tough choices. We believe this was handled with the precision necessary to preserve the well-being of the Society and the integrity of the conference, while creating an opportunity for success both in the present and future.
DATES: October 19 – October 21
TIMES: Official times to be announced shortly
IES MEMBER REGISTRATION: $299*
NON-MEMBER REGISTRATION: $399
* There will be reduced rates for Emerging Professionals (EPs) and Student members
EDUCATIONAL “SUNDAY” COURSES: SALC Educational “Sunday” Courses will not be offered this year.
EXHIBITS/TRADESHOW: The IES and SALC Committee have yet to determine if a virtual tradeshow will be included with the transition to a virtual conference setting. Once a decision is reached, more information will be available as soon as possible.
By providing a schedule that offers content across these three days, registrants will be able to attend all sessions while minimizing their time away from work or other responsibilities.
Despite the disruption we are facing, the IES is excited to bring you the opportunity to participate in the SALC without having to leave your workspace. We will leverage our technology to disseminate valuable, relevant and timely content. We hope you find this virtual conference insightful, beneficial, and of the quality that you have come to expect from the IES.
More information, such as agenda, speakers, and more will be made available shortly.
