The combination of LED and Lighting Controls represent the future for lighting, offering features previously not possible with conventional sources and systems. However, unlike previous lighting advances, this combination will create a tectonic shift, upending the entire lighting industry, and forever changing how lighting is used. How will customer needs change? What skill-sets will be required of tomorrow’s lighting practitioners? This presentation will provide those answers by examining the future of the lighting industry.
1. Learn how the Internet of Things will affect building control systems design and how the lighting industry’s “ceiling ownership” may be at risk
2. Understand the complexity of LED/Lighting Control systems that can affect the success of energy saving strategies
3. Investigate what the needs of tomorrow’s lighting customers will be, as well as who is likely to fulfill those needs.
4. Using the computer industry as a template, business strategies emerge that will benefit attendees who are looking to thrive in tomorrow’s lighting industry.
