LEDucation is Supported through the Volunteer Efforts of DLFNY Members

The Designers Lighting Forum of New York is committed to exploring and presenting the power of lighting in design. Founded in 1934, the Designers Lighting Forum is a not-for-profit organization, led by a volunteer Board of Managers and sustained by member dues and the generous support of our corporate sponsors. They enthusiastically provide designers, architects, manufacturers and their representatives, contractors, educators, and students the opportunity to meet and experience the wonder of lighting in New York City and beyond. The DLFNY also supports formal lighting education through contributions to local universities and design schools, as well as national funds.

In 2006, Peggy Meehan and Bob Nadel of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) met with Burt Grant of the Designers Lighting Forum (DLF) with an idea for a joint IES/DLF program on new and evolving LEDs in the lighting industry. They formed a committee and started planning the show to be held on January 17, 2007, which would include both presentations and LED-only exhibits. They were able to get the McGraw Hill Conference Center and use of the auditorium for the programs presented by Michael Hennes of Cline Bettridge Bernstein Lighting Design, Howard Mastropiero of Philips Lighting, and Ann Reo of IO Lighting. The show had 31 exhibitor tables and about 350 attendees. With the show’s success, the question came up if it would be done again the following year. After getting a terrific response from manufacturers asking to exhibit at the next show, LEDucation was off and running, with LEDucation II on the horizon.
