Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Today’s Leapfrog Lighting blog report again covered Lightfair International, including full details of the happenings, innovations and seminars at the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference. Here are some highlights (visit the blog for a full report>>).
The exhibition floor remained crowded and the lineups at the door were no smaller than on opening day.
Significantly, they reported, this year’s show displayed far more LED finished products and showcased less in the way of LED lighting components or test gear.
On the floor they also noted a big increase in museum track lighting because “the push is on due to the low heat and no UV/IR characteristics of LEDs, making them an ideal choice for galleries or museums—one of the key reasons for conversion.” The Lighting Services Inc (LSI) museum track head is specifically designed for galleries and museums.

With legislation and building codes focused on efficiency as well as a push for green initiatives, it no surprise that Building Automation Systems (BAS) are on the rise, and well represented at the show, they reported. BAS’s help to “reduce energy cost as well as operation and maintenances cost, improve comfort and productivity of occupants, provide alarms to anticipate issues/complaints, and provide timely information to the facility management team.”
In the blog report, they gave detailed highlights of four seminars attended, including:
· Luxurious Luminosity: Shedding Lighting on Hospitality Illumination, by Emlyn Altman
· Form Follows Function: How Changing Library Practices are echoed in Design Choices, by Ardra Paige Zinkon
· Integrating LEDs and Lighting Controls for Increased Energy and Cost Savings in Commercial Interiors, by Donald Millstein
· The Burden Museum: A Case Study of Specifying LEDs and Compatible Dimming, by Naomi Miller and Janet Lennox Moyer
