Learn about the latest DLC efforts to push the envelope on efficient LED technology

The DLC Stakeholder Meeting is an opportunity to hear directly from industry experts on movements and trends in an incredibly dynamic industry, in addition to connecting with representatives from different programs and companies to hear a variety of perspectives on challenges and innovations within the lighting industry. There are many exciting new developments happening constantly in lighting, and the DLC Stakeholder Meeting provides a centralized forum to hear, learn, and discuss developments. Opportunities for learning and collaboration range from panels led by industry experts, to Structured Networking, to in-depth discussion sessions.


Participate in Structured Networking sessions

Structured Networking offers a unique opportunity for your business to meet with DLC Member programs. The goal is to increase understanding between individual manufacturers and utility and energy efficiency programs, in order to maximize the value of incentive programs as well as leverage market opportunities. Participation in the small group meetings is open to all attending manufacturers, but it not guaranteed as space is limited. Conference sponsors receive preference in the selection process.


Showcase your company’s leadership in the industry by becoming a sponsor of the event

Sponsoring the DLC 2018 Stakeholder Meeting is an exciting opportunity for companies to showcase their own programs and developments. Sponsorship gives your company a high degree of visibility at the conference and the flexibility to really make an impression through opportunities such as providing opening remarks, helping to design and put on an off-site event, or showcasing your company via a booth. It is a terrific way to connect your brand with other industry stakeholders and sets the stage for potential partnerships and leads. Sponsorship also provides the opportunity to involve your brand in the lighting community outside of your particular industry and gain recognition and respect amongst attendees.
