Introducing kbis think

Ever heard of the term “User Generated Content” ? Well it’s a big deal in the digital world and while you may not know the term you’re doing it all the time – creating content by posting on your Facebook, Instagram and other social media channels. Why is this form of discussion and communication so popular? Because it’s usually free, easy, quick and a wonderful way to share your thoughts, opinions and experiences. In real life, this exists too and it’s called a Barcamp format – originally created by geek groups (we say this lovingly) and later adapted by many other interest groups. The point: Instead of panel or speaker format, actual event attendees get to create a topic, post it and invite others to join the conversation and at KBIS, we’re doing just that with the newly minted KBIS THINK.

lightovation lounge

Lightovation Lounge features two days of lighting-focused programming by nationally recognized lighting designer Randall Whitehead, IALD, aka “The Lighting Doctor,” and Joe Rey-Barreau, AIA, longtime director of Education for American Lighting Association, and professor at the University of Kentucky, aka “The Lighting Professor.” In addition to leading 20-minute educational sessions on a range of timely lighting topics, the “Doctor” and the “Professor” also will host office hours to meet individually with attendees to answer their lighting questions one-on-one.

Lightovation Lounge also brings Dallas Market Center’s Lightovation event to KBIS via a virtual reality experience that transports attendees to the largest residential lighting show in North America.

The Lounge is presented in partnership by Dallas Market Center, the American Lighting Association and Furniture Lighting & Decor magazine. Educational programming is sponsored by Hinkley Lighting.
