CALL FOR SPEAKERS – CLOSED 1/31/21

Calling all innovators: Have you been wanting to present information in a truly different way, interact with your audience, use props or hands-on demonstrations? Are you tired of case studies that hide the reality of failure and on-the-fly adaptation behind the glossy veneer of a perfectly executed project? Are you frustrated with a lack of diverse voices and abundance of safe subject matter in traditional seminar tracks?

Are you ready to be honest, be collaborative, and most importantly, be yourself?

If so, we’d love to give you a forum to let your info flag fly at the inaugural ArchLIGHT Summit, September 21-22, 2021.

We’re committed to being boldly different and actively inclusive in every aspect of our event, including the presenters we partner with. So if you’ve had an idea for an engaging demonstration or discussion that hasn’t fit the mold of a traditional trade show or conference, let us give it the platform it deserves.

Dallas Market Center is already the largest residential lighting marketplace in North America, home to the semi-annual Lightovation show and the busiest open-daily design center in the country. With the introduction of the ArchLIGHT Summit, our lighting leadership will also encompass commercial brands and attract lighting designers, architects and specifiers.

Whether you are a professional from one of those disciplines yourself or offer insights that could help any passionate (read: workaholic) creative, we want to hear what you have to say.

Submit a Speaker Registration form to start a dialogue about your idea, including how it could be executed at our unique venue. But do it quickly—our deadline for submissions is January 31, 2021.


Stipend and travel considerations will be considered for each speaker. Please note any special accommodations that will need to be considered for your presentation to be successful.
