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, bench marks 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.

On September 25th we will be kicking off the season with a presentation by Faith Baum regarding an interesting design challenge for a Bridge Project in Toledo, OH. The glass-enclosed tower of Veterans Glass City Skyway became an instant symbol of Toledo and the centerpiece of ODOT’s bridge portfolio when it opened in 2007 and again when the lighting system was updated in 2018. Faith will review the unique collaboration between ODOT, the design team and local artists to develop lighting content for the tower, including everything from football team colors to translating the visions of six artists into light.
