Welcome to LightFair

This is where we shape the future of lighting together.

LightFair, presented by Light + Building, is the premier, biennial architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, the preferred marketplace, networking, and learning destination bringing the best and the brightest together.

The LightFair Conference has been setting the standard in continuing lighting education for 30+ years offering the lighting community the chance to earn CEUs, learn from the best, and connect with leading practitioners.

Managed and produced by Messe Frankfurt, LightFair is also co-owned by the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES). The co-ownership of LightFair by the IES and IALD provides a unique and valuable opportunity for attendees to connect with and learn from professionals in the lighting industry who are at the forefront of their field. The combination of the latest technology and products with the expertise of the IES and IALD provides attendees with a comprehensive and invaluable experience at LightFair.

We look forward to seeing you at LightFair!
