Lightovation Announces New Dates for January 2023
Lightovation, the largest residential lighting trade event in North America, has announced new dates for its January 2023 show: Tuesday, January 10 through Friday, January 13. The Total Home & Gift Market will remain January 4-10, 2023.
The date shift was made after extensive feedback from the lighting retail community and in collaboration with Dallas Market Center’s Lighting Board of Governors, which had also consulted with customers and sales representatives to inform a recommendation.
The new dates allow for more time after the new year for travel to the global show and for exhibitor set-up. An optional preview day for Lightovation will take place on Monday, January 9.
“Listening to the lighting industry we are making this adjustment in order to better serve lighting retail showrooms, many of which travel long distances to attend the show,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “As a permanent marketplace we have the flexibility to be ready when the customer is ready. At the same time, we heard from the lighting retail community that they wanted to attend our Total Home & Gift Market, and these new dates meet their complete needs. I want to thank our Lighting Board for their leadership and cooperation that place customer interests first.”
Lightovation, held each winter and summer in Dallas, welcomes attendees from around the world to review new products from among more than 200 leading brands across a 1 million square foot lighting marketplace. Participants include independent retailers, buying groups, plumbing and electrical distributors, lighting designers, architects, builders, specifiers, and interior designers.
The next edition of Lightovation takes place June 22-25, 2022. Registration for that event is open at www.dallasmarketcenter.com/lightovation. Summer 2023 dates (June 21-24, 2023) remain unchanged.
