The disruption that our lighting community is experiencing offers unprecedented opportunities.We will create more wealth in the next ten years than the previous hundred.There is easier access now to capital, knowledge and expertise and advanced technologies than ever before.The cost of food, transportation, communications and energy have fallen dramatically over the past century.LED lighting has also faced demonetization and has become competitive with traditional sources making it accessible and preferable to most consumers.Miniaturization, integration into the electrical infrastructure of buildings and SSL morphing with other trades is already occurring.The pace of future progress will quicken and lighting professionals who embrace it will be rewarded.We ultimately cannot protect the past from the future.The promise of progress is available to whoever best understands and addresses the exponential growth shifts we are facing.Attend this session for a glimpse at the promise and a message on how to enjoy and benefit from the transformation we are experiencing.
