Lovers of Light - Game Show benefitting the IALD Education Trust
See what the excitement is all about with the Acclaimed Lighting Game Show, Lovers of Light, joins ArchLIGHT Summit as part of North American Tour.

Join us at the Light Bites stage as six designers square off to debate lighting topics we care about! Food, refreshments, prizes and frivolity are guaranteed for this event benefiting the IALD.

The Lovers of Light game show will take place 6:00-8:00PM with free drinks, food and a lot of interactive fun for all!

Lovers of Light (LoL) is a lighting industry panel point/counter point debate tackling important lighting topics in a lighthearted gameshow format. This session will be the square off between 6 contestants. The contestants will consist of manufacturers, designers and sales representatives and be paired prior to the show to select their topic of debate. Typical topics include: Light and Health - the new future of lighting or still too early; Dark Sky – Do dark sky design requirements create a better outdoor design; credentials – do they matter? Each one of the pair will have 2 minutes to address their side of the topic. After the debate, the other contestants will provide a 1-minute comment then select who they agree with, providing a point to the contestant. The topic will then be thrown to the audience for them to weigh in on the topic. After a 5-minute audience participation session, an applause-o-meter will be used to select which side they agree with along with 5 points. This sequence will happen for each pair. A lightning round will follow with similar sequence but randomized topics and shorter response times. As previously mentioned, this can be a bunch of fun but get some serious dialog going on the industry hot topics.
  • Gain insight into both pro and con sides of 6 topics relating to the lighting industry.
  • Audience will have the opportunity to participate in the debate by voting and or commenting on the debate topics.
  • Topics will include both technical and business-related items. The debate will help the audience form opinions on technology related to products and specifications and develop strategies to help grow their business.
  • Audience will gain insight on topics from a cross channel perspective with the panel consisting of Manufacturers, Specifiers and independent sales agents.
