DALLAS – ArchLIGHT Summit has extended both its 2023 Call for speakers and Early Bird exhibitor discounts for 2023 booths.
Dallas Market Center launched ArchLIGHT Summit in September 2021, the first in-person commercial lighting event held in nearly two years, establishing a platform for product innovations from leading lighting exhibitors and a robust educational program. The event built on this success for the second edition in September 2022 with a 22% increase in exhibitor participation and a 34% increase in attendance.
The next event, taking place September 19-20, 2023, will welcome lighting designers, architects, interior designers, specifiers and students to review new products, network, and attend a wide range of seminars. As in 2022, ArchLIGHT Summit overlaps with the September 17-19 National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors (NAILD) annual Convention and the September 18-21 Dallas Design Week, both also co-located at Dallas Market Center.
Prospective ArchLIGHT Summit speakers are invited to submit proposals consistent with the show’s mission to be boldly different and actively inclusive. The deadline for applying to speak has been extended to February 15, 2023. The most sought-after sessions will be those that break the mold of traditional presentations and panels, in favor of more experiential learning and honest discussions. A new programming feature for 2023 is Light Bites, an opportunity for shorter, easily digestible presentations taking place on the Dallas Trade Mart’s show floor.

For exhibitors, the 2023 ArchLIGHT Summit will present the unique opportunity to reach the architectural, specification and design communities seeking commercial lighting brands that represent the leading edge of innovation and technology. A generous $500 discount on both booth size options—10×10 and 6×10—will continue through January 31, 2023. Custom sponsorship and marketing packages are also available to increase visibility, with complete information at www.ArchLIGHTSummit.com and Exhibitor Registration at https://archlightsummit.com/exhibit/.
