Top lighting and energy efficiency professionals are motivated by a driving concern: developing LED lighting solutions that people love. To stay up to speed on fast-evolving technologies, market transformation, and efficiency regulations, these professionals have an ideal forum in the DesignLights Consortium. For the second year in a row, Akoya is proud to have provided event management and logistics for the consortium’s signature event, the annual stakeholder meeting. This year’s event in Portland, Oregon, attracted more than 250 people for three days of education, networking, and even a little fun— attendees enjoyed a casino-themed reception and an evening at the Oregon Zoo.
Akoya worked closely with the client on the site search, venue selection, and contract negotiations, and handled all aspects of logistics management, including securing a local professional photographer and transportation vendor. On site, our team handled all behind-the-scenes management—such as registration, room and banquet setups, and last-minute requests—to ensure the client could focus on the content of the meeting itself. We’re proud of our partnership with the DesignLights Consortium and look forward to another successful conference in 2018!
