This past month, Danny Cortez and I were in Dallas for the bi-annual industry show, Lightovation, and we learned that everything, most definitely, is bigger in Texas! Lightovation is hosted at the, massively impressive Dallas Market Center which allowed for hundreds of vendors and manufacturers to meet and display their best and “brightest” products for the new year. Lightovation, already known as the industry’s largest trade event, upped the antsy this year by introducing a 15,000 square-foot showroom that featured an unprecedented range of new designs. This show was a great jumping off point for the upcoming year and a great preview of what can be expected from the industry!
In Dallas, we were supporting our manufacturers that had showrooms on display. Our partners, Pure Edge Lighting, BlackJack Lighting and Eurofase products on display in the showrooms at Lightovation and we had the opportunity to support them throughout the two-day event. We led discussions with our partners that surrounded showroom business and industry trends.
One trend that stole the spotlight were all the LED, energy saving, lighting options. Homeowners will be pleased to know that manufacturers had plenty of lighting options that were both eco-friendly and stylish! Showrooms were filled with LED, energy saving lighting trends that wouldn’t require homeowners to sacrifice design to be environmentally conscious.
