The following is a press release from the Designers Lighting Forum of New York announcing that LEDucation 2020 has been postponed until August.

The Designers Lighting Forum of New York and the LEDucation committee announces the LEDucation 2020 Trade Show and Conference will be canceled based on the growing concerns of COVID-19 in the lighting industry and the New York community.

The trade show and conference, slated to be held in New York City on March 17–18, is rescheduled for August 18–19, 2020 at the New York Hilton Midtown.

LEDucation 2020 is host to more than 400 exhibitors representing the lighting industry’s most innovative design and technology companies. The two-day event was anticipated to draw over 6,000 attendees. “We recognize all the hard work that so many have put into preparing for the Leducation Trade Show and Conference,” said Burt Grant and Caroline Rinker, LEDucation co-chairs. “Based on the evaluation of evolving circumstances, it is clear that it would be an unacceptable risk to bring so many together in New York next week. The safety and health of our industry is of utmost importance.”

The March conference was set to feature 33 sessions, led by lighting and allied field industry experts. "We appreciate the effort and support of our LEDucation 2020 speakers" said Wendy Kaplan and Craig Fox, presentation co-chairs. "We look forward to working with them again for the August show."

All exhibition and attendee registrations will remain fully valid for the LEDucation alternative date of August 18-19, 2020. Details regarding hotel, show materials and freight will be announced in the next 48 hours.
