Two visionary industry experts have been selected to headline the LIGHTFAIR® International (LFI) 2010 Conference and Institute as the featured keynote speakers. James Brodrick, PhD, and Stephen Jones will address solid-state lighting and the impact of integrated design on the AEC (architectural, engineering and construction) industry in a two-day lineup of dynamic keynote luncheons. Jones takes the stage on Monday, May 10—the opening day of the Institutes—and Brodrick follows on Tuesday, May 11.
Pulling from professional experience and significant research, both speakers will individually address critical factors weighing on the future of the industry while engaging the audience with compelling information and enlightening solutions. The two-day series spotlights:
