Masks Are Strongly Encouraged: Review Updated Health & Safety Measures

You're invited to the 12th Annual Showroom of the Year Awards in Dallas on Thursday, June 24. We know this event is extra special this time as the industry comes together again in person, so we are planning an off-site ceremony at the nearby Virgin Hotel (1445 Turtle Creek Blvd.), followed by a celebration we are calling the Big Texas Welcome.


  • The Showroom of the Year Awards ceremony will begin at 7:00 PM in the Manor room. Any attendees, exhibitors, or reps participating in Lightovation are welcome to attend with no tickets or reservations required. The award ceremony will be streamed on Facebook Live via the Lightovation page, so anyone who is not able to attend in person can still be a part of your big night.
  • The Big Texas Welcome will immediately follow in the Giant room starting at 7:30 PM, kicking off with some light-hearted laughs led by lighting industry veteran Jimmy Norris and live music by the Jake Maurer Band.


6PM - 8PM
Shuttles depart from WTC Main Entrance 1 to The Virgin Hotel
8PM - 12AM
Shuttles depart from the Virgin Hotel to the Sheraton Dallas, Renaissance, and Hilton Anatole
  • We will also offer an Uber code for $2 off rides; watch for details about this in upcoming buyer communications.
