The lighting industry continues to be in a state of rapid transformation. New technologies and new business models are forcing the industry to rethink what it means to be a lighting company in the 21st century. To understand and address this issue, the Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is bringing together leaders from the lighting industry, policy makers, and business development experts for a panel discussion on the future of lighting and industry stewardship in this time of change, as part of the LRC Partner-Alliance Event, to be held September 5-6 in Troy, New York.
To begin the discussion, each panel member will present a brief summary of their views of where the lighting industry is going, and the challenges and opportunities they see over the next ten years. They will then engage in a moderated discussion with other attendees of the LRC Partner-Alliance Event with the goal of developing a roadmap for the industry during this time of transition.

About the Glenn W. Bailey Memorial Fellowship
Glenn W. Bailey was a major force in lighting. Under his leadership, Genlyte became one of the two largest luminaire companies in North America with a company culture focused on productivity and openness. In 2010, the Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation provided an endowment to the LRC memorializing Glenn Bailey’s contribution to the lighting industry. The stated objective of the endowment is to provide support to the LRC to establish closer ties with lighting manufacturers with a strong presence in the United States.
