Architects, engineers, building owners, lighting and electrical contractors, facility managers, school facilities officials, healthcare facilities officials, manufacturers, dealers and distributors, lighting designers, interior designers and anyone with basic knowledge and interest in lighting commercial and industrial facilities.
LEDs are still considered a relative newcomer in the lighting market. However, they are entering the growth phase of their product life cycle which means they are gaining even more momentum. Join us to examine the latest LED products. We’ll highlight those that perform well, as well as those that do not and explain why coupling lighting controls with LED technology is the next step to enhanced energy conservation. A thorough analysis of costs associated with implementation will be reviewed and a Lambeau Field representative will discuss potential state-of-the-art lighting renovations at the legendary Packers stadium.
7:30 am: Registration and continental breakfast
8 am–noon: Program
noon–1 pm: Optional boxed lunch and ‘Ask the experts’ opportunity. Plus a discussion featuring a Lambeau Field facility representative about upcoming stadium lighting changes.
The registration fee for attending this half-day course is $129, which includes continental breakfast. Boxed lunches are available for an additional $10, and must be ordered with your registration. There is limited availability, so you are encouraged to register early.
