I have finally found a group of people that share the same passion and truly care about the growth of our industry. The friendships I've made and the knowledge I walk away with each year are worth every penny of the conference.

The beautiful thing about The Lighting Summit is the space it creates for people to come together and help one another improve and grow their businesses. We keep coming back, not only because of the incredible impact attending it has had on our company, but also because of how great Jerry and his team at McKay Lighting have been sharing their experience with others.
