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.

Catering will be provided by Ravishing Radish and will be buffet style this year. All food (with the exception of bread) will be gluten free. A vegan meal option will be provided. If desired, please check the box for each appropriate registrant during registration.

This event would not be possible without the support of local IES members and companies who provide invaluable services to the lighting community. We are always looking for event sponsors.
