2020 IES Virtual Annual Conference
Aug 24 – Sep 4 all-day

August 24-28, 2020
August 31 – September 4, 2020

2020 IES Virtual Annual ConferenceThe Illuminating Engineering Society’s Annual Conference (August 24 – 28, 2020 and August 31 – September 4, 2020) provides a range of educational programming on the art, design, science, and research of lighting relevant to lighting professionals, educators, and related design disciplines. The 2020 Annual Conference has been moved to a virtual setting due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As always, professional education is paramount, with a broad selection of CEU credits available through participation at the conference.

IES’s priority is the health and safety of the lighting community, including our members, staff, supporters, vendors and volunteers. As the COVID-19 pandemic continued to unfold, it became clear that in the face of an unprecedented situation, we needed to make tough choices. While it took longer than expected to reach a resolution, we believe that this was handled with the precision necessary to preserve the well-being of the Society while creating an opportunity for success both in the present and future.

DATES: August 24th – August 28th and August 31st – September 4th
TIMES: Official times to be determined, but there will be two blocks of sessions each day.
IES MEMBER REGISTRATION: $249*
NON-MEMBER REGISTRATION: $349
* There will be reduced rates for Emerging Professionals (EPs) and Student members, but we encourage you to wait on registering for the conference until we announce the benefits of the EP Program for this year.

The virtual Annual Conference will have sessions that will be held August 24th – August 28th and August 31st – September 4th. By providing a schedule that offers content across these two weeks, registrants will be able to attend all sessions and not have to choose between different tracks.

Despite the disruption we are facing, the IES is excited to bring you the opportunity to participate in the Annual Conference without having to leave your workspace. We will leverage our technology to disseminate valuable, relevant and timely content. We hope that you find this virtual Annual Conference insightful, beneficial, and of the quality that you have come to expect from the IES.

There will be no virtual tabletop sessions this year. We will resume tabletops when we return to an in-person annual conference.

More information, such as agenda, speakers, and more will be made available shortly.

Please note, if you previously registered for the 2020 Annual Conference, your payment has been refunded. Those that have booked their rooms at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, the hotel will cancel your room reservation on your behalf.
