McCormick Place in Chicago hosted 2018’s Lightfair trade show, “the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference”.
I attended the show for three days, Tuesday through Thursday. The show was across one large hall, with exhibitors spanning general illumination lighting for lamps and luminaires, architectural and decorative lighting, components for lighting technology, LED suppliers, and various industry bodies.
This show report contains my top five stories from the show.
