Similarly to the Progress Report event at the IES Annual Conference, IES Tidewater will be having our own local Progress Report product showcase. The event will feature the latest and greatest lighting products from your Hampton Roads lighting representatives. Think of this event as a “Project Runway” fashion show for luminaires, controls, and any other new and exciting products that your vendors would like to show off (without all the fancy dress, and tuxedos).

The representatives are keeping their products a surprise, so come out to see the newest technologies and the most sleek and, dare we say it, sexy lighting design elements on the market. Each product will focus on applicable design features including visual and optical performance, energy and efficiency, size, life, lighting impact, market growth, firsts to the market, and any other feature that would apply to your design considerations. Possible products that will be showcased include:

  • Light Sources
  • Luminaires
  • Power Supplies
  • Controls
  • Life Safety Equipment
  • Accessories
  • Materials
  • Solar Equipment

The dress is business casual, just like any of our other meetings. Food will be catered.
