Dec 22, 2021

Call for 2022 Designery Speakers and Tour Guides Now Open

LightFair closes 2021 on a high note, with early commitments for more than 75% of its available 2022 exhibit space and applications now accepted for 2022 Designery speakers and exhibit hall tour guides. LightFair’s 2022 edition is June 19 – 23 in the Las Vegas Convention Center's brand-new, state-of-the-art West Hall.

“Exhibit space for LightFair 2022 is selling quickly – suppliers are eager to reunite with the lighting industry once again,” said Dan Darby, show director. “Beyond exhibits, we also have started the search for passionate industry professionals to educate the future of lighting in the Designery and guide our many specifiers through the exhibit hall.”

Space Selection Closes Out 2021 Strong

Space selection, which began in November for LightFair 2022, is approaching capacity with nearly 100,000 square feet of exhibit space already sold, equating to 75% of the show floor. According to Darby, 90% of 2021 exhibitors have already secured their booth space for LightFair’s Las Vegas 2022 edition with sales showing no signs of slowing down through December.
