Dallas Market Center, the home of Lightovation - the largest residential lighting trade event in North America, is proud to announce the 2022 Light Stars honorees. These individuals will attend the June 22-25 edition of Lightovation as honored guests and the group includes some of the top salespeople from leading lighting retailer across North America.

Anyone in the industry can nominate a Light Star, which are lighting industry personnel who wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to attend Lightovation but would greatly benefit from the experience. Honorees accepted into the Light Stars program receive airfare and two nights of hotel accommodations during the June show. Nominations were received this year through March 1.

In addition to travel and hotel arrangements, Light Stars are granted access to all Lightovation exhibits and events, including the Showroom of the Year Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, June 22 at 6 p.m and the ALA Meet Your Young Executives Reception on Thursday, June 23 at 5 p.m. Lighting After Dark will close out the event at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel at 8 p.m. with an evening to unwind and enjoy the boho vibes of a night in Tulum featuring live music from Danni & Kris, food and drink, plus giveaways and other prizes.

“We are thrilled to welcome back the Light Stars with this unique program honoring great sales people,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “We welcome them to Dallas and look forward to deepening their knowledge and relationships through events, products, trends, and networking.”
