LEDucation 2020 Cancellation

LEDucation 2020 Cancellation

Date: April 23, 2020


Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 virus, The Designers Lighting Forum of New York and the LEDucation committee have canceled LEDucation 2020.

“We are disappointed that we are unable to hold LEDucation 2020 for the lighting community. However, the health and welfare of our exhibitors and attendees is our top priority, and feel that this is the right decision based on the information we have today,” LEDucation Co-Chairs Burt Grant and Caroline Rinker said in the official announcement.

“We are faced with an unprecedented level of uncertainty for what will occur in the coming months, and this decision will allow us to come together again when there is more clarity regarding our collective health,” said Francesca Bastianini, President of the DLFNY. “We look forward to when we can join with all of you again in person to share in the news and innovation from the industry, its practitioners, and our community.”

LEDucation 2020, the nation’s largest LED-only trade show, was originally scheduled for March 17-18 at the New York Hilton Midtown, and had previously been rescheduled for Aug. 18-19. LEDucation 2021 will be held next Mar. 16-17.

GENLED Acolyte® -- a leading global provider of custom architectural LED lighting solutions -- is a proud platinum sponsor of LEDucation. The trade show features more than 30 seminars and attracts some 6,000 attendees and more than 400 manufacturers of LED lighting products and control systems.

“We’re obviously disappointed that LEDucation 2020 was canceled, but the safety of our customers, our employees and our community has to come first,” said Scott Vontobel, director of global sales for GENLED Brands®. “We will be happy to set up individual trainings, sales meetings or calls at our customers’ request. And we plan to see everyone at LEDucation 2021!”
