The Illuminating Engineering Society Los Angeles Section is proud to bring you another popularly received Lighting Product Show. We will be returning to our successful location--the historic Shrine Expo Center, 700 West 32nd Street, Los Angeles, CA.
This year the Show will be on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, opening to guests at 2 pm, and closing at 9pm (move-in and move-out same day, starting at 9am). As in years past, there is Free admission, parking, and food for all.
Our separate sign-up form will give you all of the information. Space is based on a “first come, first serve” basis. Last year, we were sold out before the end of the year.
Manufacturers need to register through their local sales representative if they have one. The maximum number of booth spaces available per representative is 10. Representatives should list the complete name of each manufacturer to which a space is to be assigned (for proper signage). Payment must be received by January 29th, 2016 to insure your reservation.
With the success of this event, we are funding the IES Los Angeles Section Student Education Fund, which consists of the Saul Goldin Memorial Internship Program and the Russell Cole Memorial Design Competition. These education programs have been redesigned to offer diversified opportunities to Southern California students from the design community who are interested in pursuing lighting studies.
We look forward to your participation and another successful event. Send in the separate sign-up form and payment as soon as possible to reserve your space. Checks must be payable to "IES Los Angeles Section," as indicated on signup form… (sorry, we cannot accept credit cards for registration).

Architectural Panel “Why hire a lighting designer?”
Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light— Le Corbusier
Lighting is invisible and visible at the same time. Lighting can be an intangible item in the design process but can have profound effects on a space. It is the link that makes it possible for other things to happen in a space. How does a lighting designer perform their work? How are they integrated into the design team? How do Architects, Lighting Designers and Engineers all work together to create beautiful and memorable spaces. Please join us for an engaging discussion about these issues.

IES ILLUMINATION AWARDS 2016
Los Angeles - It is time... To enter your 2016 IES Illumination Awards!
Online submission is now open and will end February 8, 2016 at 11:59PM EST.
The IES Illumination Awards provides a unique opportunity for public recognition of professionalism, ingenuity, and originality in lighting design based upon the individual merit of each entry judged against specific criteria.
Judges are selected from a broad professional spectrum that represents knowledge of lighting and design excellence. The judging system is based entirely on how well the lighting design does or does not meet the program criteria. This program is not a competition. The program is open to any qualified entrant without limitations as to professional affiliations. The Guth, Waterbury, Cutler, Energy and Environmental Design Award sponsored by Osram Sylvania and the Control Innovation Award sponsored by the Lighting Controls Association are parallel programs created to recognize outstanding lighting design.
Submission will remain open until Saturday February 14th 2015 at 11:59pm EST.
If you have any questions regarding your submission, how to submit, tips, hints, etc, feel free to contact your IESLA – IA Section Chair, David Komonosky, and he’ll be happy to help.
