Who Should Attend?
The Lighting Summit is for dedicated landscape lighting professionals looking to take their business “to the next level”.
Landscape lighting is a niche business, there are not many opportunities for professional development other than product and installation training. The Lighting Summit focuses on the business of landscape lighting by discussing topics for sales, marketing, improving operation efficiency and setting goals.
The goal of the Summit is to share what has worked and not worked for us over the past 20 years. It is also a great place to meet other dedicated landscape lighting professionals, share concerns and ideas in a non-competitive atmosphere. Our hope is that you can shave a few years off the learning curve.
What To Expect When Attending The Lighting Summit:
At the Summit, you can expect a content-focused agenda geared towards helping your business be more efficient, making it more likely to grow and succeed. The Summit is not sponsored by any manufacturers and does not focus on product.

In addition, attendees build lifelong professional relationships in a non-competitive environment.
