—Dallas Market Center hosts the second annual lighting event for the architectural, specification and design communities—
DALLAS – November 23, 2021 – ArchLIGHT Summit, the new lighting trade event and educational platform for the architectural, specification and design communities, has opened exhibitor registration and a call for speakers. The next event, taking place September 15-16, 2022, will welcome lighting designers, architects, interior designers, specifiers and students to review new products, network, and attend a wide range of seminars.
The first edition of ArchLIGHT Summit was the first commercial lighting event held in nearly two years and included the participation of 60 lighting brands as well as more than 40 educational sessions, along with networking events designed to build connections.
Said Cindy Morris, President and CEO of Dallas Market Center: “We had a great first show, and building on its success we will create an even larger event for 2022 with a dynamic community of products, people, and purpose.”
For exhibitors, the next edition of the show will present the unique opportunity to reach the architectural, specification and design communities seeking commercial lighting brands that represent the leading edge of innovation and technology. The expo portion of ArchLIGHT Summit on the first floor of the Trade Mart will feature exhibitors representing all facets of the commercial lighting spectrum. Custom sponsorship and marketing packages are also available to increase visibility, with complete information available at https://archlightsummit.com/exhibit/.
Speakers are also invited to submit proposals consistent with the show’s mission to be boldly different and actively inclusive. The most sought-after sessions will be those that break the mold of traditional presentations and panels, in favor of more experiential learning and honest discussions.

Dozens of existing architectural lighting brands at Dallas Market Center and a robust local specification community prompted the development of the annual ArchLIGHT Summit, which has broadened offerings to include commercial specification brands in addition to those already present in Dallas that straddle residential and commercial markets. The city’s central location and accessibility is conducive to a broad geographic reach, creating new opportunities in the wake of announcements of other western regional shows being permanently canceled.
