LEDucation Announces 2020 Show Dates March 17–18 and Exhibition Expansion

(New York, NY)— Celebrating fourteen years, LEDucation 2020 will return to New York City and kick off on Saint Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2020. The two-day trade show and conference will be held in the heart of the city, at the New York Hilton Midtown.

Due to overwhelming demand, LEDucation 2020 is expanding and will provide additional exhibition space to accommodate companies who are currently on a waiting list. The third expo area, Americas Hall 2, will open an extra 16,398 square feet of exhibition area and be dedicated to a “Controls and Components” section. The expansion will provide a fresh platform specifically for the growing segment of the lighting industry who specialize in high-performance professional LED lighting systems, technologies and solutions.

LEDucation committee co-chair, Burt Grant, states, “Once we realized we had a wait list of over 110 companies, we knew we had to expand. With an abundance of new technologies, it was time to create an area for them and thus, a ‘Controls and Components’ section made a lot of sense.”

Organized by volunteers from the Designers Lighting Forum of New York, LEDucation has grown consistently since its inception in 2007, when the show began with 31 exhibitor tables and approximately 350 attendees. This year, in 2019, LEDucation will host 275+ exhibiting companies from around the globe and approximately 6,000 attendees are anticipated.

LEDucation 2020 will take place on
Tuesday, March 17, 2020, 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Wednesday, March 18, 2020, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

2020 exhibitor registration is now open.
