The Designers Lighting Forum of New York – the organizers behind LEDucation 2017 – is committed to exploring and presenting the power of lighting in design. Founded in 1934, the Designers Lighting Forum is a not-for-profit organization. Today, it is led by a voluntary Board of Managers and sustained by member dues and the generous support of the corporate sponsors.
They enthusiastically provide designers, architects, manufacturers and their representatives, contractors, educators, and students the opportunity to meet and experience the wonder of lighting in New York City and beyond. The DLFNY also supports formal lighting education through contributions to local universities and design schools, as well as national funds.
