Infocast's Smart Lighting Value Chain Summit

Presenting a Rare Generational Opportunity to Realign the Turbulent Lighting Industry That Is Poised for Rapid Growth Over the Next Five Years

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2011) - Out with the old and in with the new echoes are reverberating within the lighting industry as Infocast brings its game changing Smart Lighting Value Chain Summit to the Networking Meeting Center in Santa Clara, CA from June 20-22, 2011. This Summit presents financiers and entrepreneurs with a fantastic opportunity to realign and be a part of this rapidly growing smart lighting industry that could double in the next five years and significantly increase their bottom line.

The smart lighting market is experiencing strong growth, according to a new report by Pike Research. It states that global revenue for intelligent lighting controls will grow from "$1.3 billion to $2.6 billion by 2016 ... [and] could grow as large as $3.5 billion within the same time period" under an aggressive growth scenario. Philips Lighting CEO, Rudy Provoost, concurs and states that the lighting market is "extremely dynamic" and adoption of solid-state lighting (LED) technology will be "the key driving force for growth in the lighting industry."

The Smart Lighting Summit will bring together members of the intelligent lighting value chain including property owners, municipal and state energy directors, LED developers, lighting system designers, vendors of network intelligence and building controls, building managers and contractors and others to discuss the new sales channels and product opportunities in this fast-changing industry. The Summit also provides a unique opportunity to create a robust environment for both identifying new opportunities and strategies and for relationship building and deal making.

The premiere business-networking event will feature keynote presentations from Naveen Tumula of Philips Lighting, Gary Flamm of California Energy Commission and Bracken Hendricks of Center for American Progress. It includes presentations from lighting industry pioneers including Acuity Brands, Philips Lumileds Lighting, Daintree, Digital Lumens, Johnson Controls and Edison International among many others.
