NEW YORK, December 2, 2020 — Due to the continuing uncertainty of the pandemic, along with New York State and City restrictions on assembly, the LEDucation committee has made the decision to reschedule the in-person 2021 LEDucation Tradeshow and Conference to August 17-18, 2021. The in-person event is slated to be held at the New York Hilton Midtown and will continue to include multiple exhibition halls featuring the industry’s top manufacturers and suppliers, as well as a dynamic conference program.
In a post COVID-19 environment, LEDucation will continue to prioritize the health and safety of all attendees and will be run in accordance with official government and local authority guidance, as well as New York Hilton Midtown health protocols. This will include enhanced cleaning, non-contact registration, physical distancing, on-site medical staff, personal protective equipment (PPE), screening measures, and adapted conference rooms and sessions.

The March 16-17, 2021 LEDucation Conference will still take place virtually and offer a variety of accredited webinars—all with a focus on solid-state lighting. In addition, a virtual Online Marketplace will begin March 16th that will allow registered attendees to review the latest products and technologies from LEDucation 2021 exhibitors, free of charge. Further details will be provided in January 2021.
