Lightfair International Student Outreach Program returns for 2010 event

05 February 2010 14.30 GMT

(USA) - Now in its third year, Lightfair International (LFI )‘s LFI Student Outreach Program is designed to stimulate and educate lighting, architecture and engineering students from across the nation and around the world.

The 2010 LFI Student Outreach Program at the Las Vegas show this May will offer educational and volunteer opportunities on the trade show floor and in the classroom during the LFI Conference and Institutes.  Students who take advantage of this program are exposed to more than 500 lighting exhibitor resources and more than 220 hours of lighting-related education.

The program, exclusively offered by Lightfair for students dedicated to the industry, offers a vast array of opportunities to participate in the largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show & conference. The 2010 student benefits include a  Student Design Competition display; Student Portfolio Review; and Lighting Education Meet & Greet.

Student Design Competition display 
- University of Alabama engineering, interior design and art students formed interdisciplinary groups within a new lighting class and defined lighting needs throughout the University campus - creating projects to help make it more efficient. The two winning projects will be displayed in the Lighting Education Lounge at the show.

Student Portfolio Review -  industry professionals will provide critical input to students’ work for interviews and job hunting.

Lighting Education Meet & Greet  where students, educators, industry professionals and supporters of lighting education are all invited to meet and mingle in the Lighting Education Lounge.

Student Tours of the LFI Exhibit Hall - a look around Lightfair, led by industry professionals.

Free student registration for the LFI Exhibit Hall and one free seminar;

A reduced Student Full Conference Package (includes access to eight seminars/symposia, the LFI Exhibit Hall for all three days and the LFI Innovation Awards).

50% off all other in-depth courses (3-hour workshops, 1-day and 2-day Institute courses).

Complimentary New Attendee Orientation taking place on the opening day of the Exhibit Hall, May 12.

Student Volunteer Opportunities at the LFI Conference in exchange for free courses.

Supporting these initiatives and offerings is the Lighting Education Lounge, positioned in the LFI Exhibit Hall. The lounge - an education destination for students, educators and those seeking additional lighting education - features an information counter and displays material from universities and institutions involved in lighting education.

Students and educators are invited to participate in the 2010 LFI trade show and conference. The LFI Conference management team is working closely with schools to ensure another successful turnout of student participants and volunteers in Las Vegas after a hugely popular reaction to the 2009 outreach program last year.
