TMCNet:  Soraa and IESNYC Hold Lighting PlugFest Media Event at Control This! 2012

[December 04, 2012]

Soraa and IESNYC Hold Lighting PlugFest Media Event at Control This! 2012

--(Business Wire)--

Soraa:




WHAT:

   

In an effort to remove barriers to the rapid adoption of LED lighting, Soraa will sponsor the lighting industry's first PlugFest in conjunction with the Illuminating Engineering Society of New York City (IESNYC) at their annual Control This! event. One of the greatest hurdles to the adoption of LED lighting today is the incompatibility between LED lamps or fixtures and the installed base of legacy control gear and dimmers, which are largely designed for incandescent, halogen, or fluorescent lamps. Lighting PlugFest affords participants the opportunity to test their products and identify underlying compatibility issues.

 

Control This! 2012 is free of charge for media-if interested in attending, visit: www.controlthis.org and use discount code MEDIA when registering.

 

WHO:

Wilfred Martis, Vice President of Marketing at Soraa
Paul Gregory, Founder and President of the award-winning architectural lighting design firm Focus Lighting, Inc.
Meg Smith, LC, IES, LEED AP, co-chair of the IESNYC education committee, and senior project manager, Philips (News - Alert) Lighting Solutions and Services
