—Global brand returns to the dominant marketplace for lighting innovation—
DALLAS – September 12, 2019 – Acuity Brands Lighting is returning to Dallas Market Center with a new showroom in Trade Mart 4634 that will open in time for the winter edition of Lightovation, January 8-12, 2020. Acuity will showcase their residential and retail lines of smart home, LED, and lighting solutions inside nearly 1000 square feet of custom, interactive space. Juno AI will be among the innovative products showcased: a LED light fixture that not only illuminates a room but also controls any smart home device that works with Alexa.
"Acuity Brands Lighting realized that if we want to reach the buyers that matter in the lighting trade, then we have to have a presence at the Dallas Market Center. They are known not only for the top trade shows in this business, but also for strong daily design traffic. Acuity is excited to launch our new showroom at the leading marketplace for lighting innovation,” says Dennis Noyce, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President-Strategic Account Sales.
Acuity joins dozens of lighting companies deepening their commitment to Dallas Market Center via long-term new leases, renewals, or expansions. The total space under new agreements for Lightovation is more than 100,000 square feet and represents the largest collection of new lighting leases since 2007.
“We’re proud to have the confidence and long-term support from innovative companies including Acuity Brands Lighting,” says Cindy Morris, President and CEO of Dallas Market Center. “Their lighting and building management solutions are the best reflection of quality, style and innovation we promote at Lightovation. Our exhibitor partners know that only in Dallas will they experience strong trade events with global buyers as well as daily design business to help them achieve their business goals throughout the year.”
