On behalf of the IES Seattle Illumination Awards Committee, reserve your seat at the 2024 IES Seattle Section’s Gloria Koch Leonidas Illumination Awards on May 9th, 2024 at Block 41 in Belltown, Seattle.

The IES Seattle Section’s annual Gloria Koch Leonidas Illuminations Awards is the Pacific Northwest’s showcase event.  We gather to recognize the outstanding contributions of the many talented designers in our IES community and their contribution to the global lighting industry.  The event is also an evening to gather as a community of lighting professionals and celebrate with all those that contribute to the wonderful projects being recognized.

Our local awards have always been funded the generous donations from our local lighting community.  We continue to rely on your continued financial support.  This year our goal is to raise $30,000 to not only cover the costs of the event, but to be able to raise funds for scholarships, educational events and participation in national events.  Please donate at the level you are comfortable with.

We are also moving to sponsorship levels to pay for event costs and to keep the cost of tickets down.  Tickets will go on sale April 15th. As a sponsor you will receive an allotment of tickets based on your sponsorship level.

The Bar will require drink tickets or cash.  You will receive 3 with the purchase of a seat.  Additional drinks can be purchased.  (please drink responsibly)

We took member feedback and are moving to ticket sales for individual seats.  We will no longer be doing table purchases that include a paid seat.  Seating will be on a first come basis day of.

Your donation secures your name or company logo on our Sponsors page, in the program, and within the credits of the awards ceremony. Please email Todd Haas ([email protected]) with your company logo (if applicable).

This event would not be possible without the support of local IES members and companies who provide invaluable services to the lighting community. Thank you for your continued support of the IES Seattle Section and the Gloria Koch Leonidas Illumination Awards. We look forward to seeing you on May 9th!


We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
