The Illuminating Engineering Society of Australia and New Zealand (IESANZ)
together with the IPWEA’s Street Lighting and Smart Controls (SLSC) Programme
are jointly hosting an international study tour to one of the world’s most highly regarded street and area lighting conferences
in Austin, Texas USA.
The IES Street & Area Lighting Conference (SALC)
is one of the leading conferences of its kind dedicated to improving
the outdoor lighting business of councils, road authorities, utilities
and other service companies. It attracts more than 900 delegates for
three days of presentations, workshops, networking and trade exhibits.
Many of the leading figures in the global street lighting industry
attend this event, which consistently offers valuable insight into where
street lighting, smart controls and, increasingly, smart city
technology is heading.
Each year SALC attracts a small handful
of ANZ delegates who recognise its value as one of the best single
opportunities to meet and learn from industry peers. IPWEA and IESANZ
are now taking this to the next level with an offer to host an AUS-NZ
delegation to SALC to advance your knowledge of what is happening on the
international street lighting scene.
Whilst all conference
registration, travel, transfers, meals and accommodation costs are at
your own expense and own arrangements (there are no group bookings for
travel or accommodation), SLSC and IESANZ will be providing:
- Two hosts to coordinate conference attendance
- Up to 5 strategic side-meetings to ensure that delegates optimise their time and investment
introductions to many of the leading figures in the US and global
street lighting industry. These will include senior figures from many
of the major street lighting and smart controls suppliers that serve ANZ
and are SLSC partners.
IESANZ and IPWEA have requested a reduced registration fee from IES
(North America) for an AUS-NZ delegation and, if this occurs, you will
be personally informed.
that the conference commences with an evening reception on Sunday 10
September. Attendees may also wish to consider the additional LED and
smart controls courses run in the morning of Sunday 10 September. This
conference is a fantastic but intensive few days so attendees are well
advised to arrive a couple of days prior to help overcome jetlag.
