Looking Ahead

Printer Friendly, PDF & Email

There’s so much excitement going on today, I’m not sure what to talk about first. 

I’m in Dallas this week for the summer edition of Lightovation, and our schedule is jam-packed with great events, including the Showroom of the Year Awards, and new products to see.

But that’s not all.

Now that the cat is officially out of the bag, I can happily announce my new role as Editor-in-Chief of Residential Lighting and Home Fashion Forecast, effective July 1. Laura, whom all of you know and love, has accepted a new position with the Dallas Market Center as their Vice President of Lighting Technology Development & Marketing effective Aug. 1. She’s definitely not going away (and she’ll still be with the magazine at the market), but it’s bittersweet.

I’m truly excited to continue on my journey in the lighting industry, and I feel equipped and ready to keep providing the content you know and love from Residential Lighting. I’ll be writing more about this in our July print issue, so take a look there as well.

I’ll see many of you (I hope) at the Showroom of the Year Awards on Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the Loft 4 space of the Trade Mart’s fourth floor. Once again, we were thoroughly impressed by the caliber of entries and are looking forward to crowning the six winners in front of a big crowd.

Also, if you’re an under-40, don’t forget about the Beers with Peers event happening Thursday night from 5:30-7 p.m. at the D15 lounge on WTC’s 15th floor — craft beers, Texas-style eats and live music await. I’ll save you a seat.

Safe travels to the D!
