IES Street and Area Lighting Conference @ Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina

CONFERENCE SCOPE

The IES Street & Area Lighting Conference is the only conference of its kind dedicated to improving the outdoor lighting business of electric utilities and energy service companies. We continue to provide an open forum for end -users facing the same questions regarding relevant products for specific application, lighting controls, benchmarks from other users in the lighting community, and milestones reached by municipalities, utilities and DOT’s. We strive to maintain a small community feel, creating a great opportunity to network with industry peers through seminars with speaker Q+A, breakout sessions to discuss issues in-depth, an exhibit hall and many networking events with speakers and peers in a comfortable and open atmosphere.

We encourage you to make your IES Street and Area Lighting Conference 2019 hotel and air travel reservations as early as possible in order to take advantage of competitive fares. Room Block closes August 29, 2019.

WHY ATTEND?

Our attendee base, over 900 and growing, includes managers, technical and marketing specialists, lighting consultants and engineers from electric utilities, municipalities, cooperatives, energy service companies and manufacturers. These outdoor lighting professionals come from across the country and the industry. All are vitally interested in learning about products and services and include decision-makers from investor-owned regulated electric utilities, unregulated marketing affiliates, cooperatives, municipal utilities and independent contractors and consultants.

Advantages and Best Practice of LED Cove and Perimeter Lighting @ Feather Sound Country Club
Oct 15 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Course Title: Advantages and Best Practice of LED Cove and Perimeter Lighting
AIATEMPO101 $mdash; 1.0 AIA CES Learning Unit (HSW)

Power density restrictions frequently competed with and undermined a quality lighting design, with cove and perimeter lighting often falling victim.  The increased availability, energy efficiency, and performance of LED luminaires have now prioritized overall lighting design objectives once again.  We will review the benefits of illuminating the ceiling and vertical surfaces, further outline the benefits of LED linear technology and provide tips for specifying cove and wall grazing luminaires.  Finally, we will review the latest evolution of LED optimized linear cove products.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the value of illuminating the ceiling and vertical surfaces to achieve a quality lighting environment.
  • Understand the benefits that LED linear lighting provides over legacy sources.
  • Explore tips and recommendations for specifying linear luminaires to achieve the desired result.
  • Identify common applications best suited to cove and perimeter lighting.
  • Explore the latest generation of linear cove technology

Lighting, Luminaires, and Integrated Acoustic Solutions @ Feather Sound Country Club
Jan 21 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

PRESENTER:  ZACKERY BELANGER

The combination of acoustics and lighting brings challenges that are of interest to both areas of expertise. For example, acoustics requires large surface areas and materials like felt, which both sharply contrast trends in lighting toward smaller fixtures and transparency. Additionally, since lighting is a source of illumination and acoustics is more incidental, lighting needs to take higher priority in the deployment of fixtures, which means lighting needs to drive the layout, followed by an assessment of acoustic performance. Understanding the similarities and differences between light and sound open new design possibilities for both.

Cost is $30.00 per person (members) / $35.00 per person (non members) and includes lunch.

Your attendance is expected once confirming your RSVP as we reserve food and space. No shows may be asked to prepay for future events to guarantee a reservation. Please cancel or confirm at least 7 days in advance to event (by 1/14/2020).

SPEAKER BIO:

Zackery Belanger has been deeply involved in the integration of lighting and acoustics since 2017. This has included concept design, testing, analysis of performance, application to spaces, and education. His work is driven by the integration of acoustics into architecture, which has in recent years involved the acoustic impact of traditionally non-acoustic objects. He holds M.S. degrees in Physics from Oakland University and Architectural Sciences from Rensselaer. From 2002 – 2010 he worked for Kirkegaard Associates in Chicago, where he consulted and developed acoustic geometries and materials for projects such as Rensselaer’s Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center [EMPAC] in Troy, NY and Royal Festival Hall in London, UK. In 2013 he was named the inaugural Researcher-in-Residence at EMPAC, where he began development of a new framework for the design and assessment of acoustic architecture. He founded the Detroit-based studio Arcgeometer in 2015.
