LEDucation 2021 – NOW VIRTUAL
Virtual sessions will be available
Reason Going Virtual
Due to the uncertainty of New York local and state restrictions regarding mass gatherings in August, as well as government restrictions that impede international travel, the LEDucation committee has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the in-person Trade Show scheduled for August 17–18, 2021. However, the committee is pleased to announce that LEDucation will offer a series of accredited virtual conference sessions in August 2021. Definitive dates and details are forthcoming.
