April 26, 2021, NEW YORK — Due to the uncertainty of New York local and state restrictions regarding mass gatherings in August, as well as government restrictions that impede international travel, the LEDucation committee has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the in-person Trade Show scheduled for August 17-18, 2021. However, the committee is pleased to announce that LEDucation will offer a series of accredited virtual conference sessions in August 2021. Definitive dates and details are forthcoming.
“To accommodate scheduling efforts and critical deadlines in the industry, we have come to the unfortunate conclusion that an in-person LEDucation in 2021 is not feasible. The safety and protection of attendees and exhibitors is of paramount importance to us,” LEDucation Co-Chairs Burt Grant and Caroline Rinker said in a joint statement. “We understand that this comes as an enormous disappointment to the exhibitors, buyers, and industry professionals who were due to attend the show. As we continue to tackle the unknowns and prepare for better days ahead, we look forward to dynamic and interactive presentations coming this August and look forward to seeing everyone in 2022.”
The next in-person LEDucation Trade Show and Conference is slated for March 15–17, 2022 at the New York Hilton Midtown in New York City. The event will include multiple exhibition halls featuring the industry’s top manufacturers and suppliers, as well as a dynamic conference program. In a post–COVID-19 environment, LEDucation will continue to prioritize the health and safety of all attendees and will run in accordance with official government and local authority guidance, as well as New York Hilton Midtown health protocols.
Details for the 2022 show will be posted in the coming months
