It’s not too late to join us at the 2019 Street and Area Lighting Conference in San Diego, California!
The IES Street & Area Lighting Conference is the only conference of its kind dedicated to improving the outdoor lighting business of electric utilities and energy service companies. We continue to provide an open forum for end-users facing the same questions regarding relevant products for specific application, lighting controls, benchmarks from other users in the lighting community, and milestones reached by municipalities, utilities and DOT’s.
We strive to maintain a small community feel, creating a great opportunity to network with industry peers through seminars with speaker Q+A, breakout sessions to discuss issues in-depth, an exhibit hall and many networking events with speakers and peers in a comfortable and open atmosphere.
WHY ATTEND SALC?Our attendee base, over 900 and growing, includes managers, technical and marketing specialists, lighting consultants and engineers from electric utilities, municipalities, cooperatives, energy service companies and manufacturers. These outdoor lighting professionals come from across the country and the industry. All are vitally interested in learning about products and services and include decision-makers from investor-owned regulated electric utilities, unregulated marketing affiliates, cooperatives, municipal utilities and independent contractors and consultants.

Our dedicated organizers chose a suitable course that is local to the conference venue, and run a tournament there that is sponsored by our exhibiting vendors.This year we are holding the event at the world-famous Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, CA, home of the PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open, Junior Worlds, and the 2021 United States Open Championship.
