Our spec team recently hosted 15 of our electrical engineering friends on a day trip to Los Angeles to attend Lightshow West. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Lightshow West is a biannual event where lighting professionals can come and see all manufacturers and new lighting trends in one place.
It’s important to us that our friends don’t miss the event because of the 2.5+ hour drive from San Diego to Los Angeles. To help alleviate fighting LA traffic, we rent a charter bus full of goodies to transport everyone to and from the event. At the event, there is a ton to see in just one day, so our guests were given a map with our manufacturers’ booth locations highlighted to make self-guided tours easier and more efficient.
After a busy morning, we treated our guests to a complimentary lunch we sponsored with Acuity Brands at the Palm Restaurant in downtown LA. As a fun bonus, we gave guests the option to stay over-night in West Hollywood and take a tour of Artemide Lighting’s Showroom the next morning. Artemide’s showroom is always a great place to visit because they specialize in the development of lighting designed by designers and architects, which means a lot of unique, one-of-a-kind light fixtures! And you never know who will stop into the showroom while you’re there – it is frequented by many of LA’s A-List Elite celebrities!
Overall, everyone had a great time and we are looking forward to doing it again in 2019! If you are interested in joining us next time please feel free to contact Brian Rhea at Brianr@sdltg.com.
