The FINANCIAL — GE Lighting is taking its energy-saving, cost-reducing lighting solutions on the road again with the 2012 GE Lighting Revolution Tour.
This tradeshow on wheels is designed to give designers, distributors, architects, contractors, facility maintenance and utility executives a first-hand experience of GE’s latest innovations in lighting technology. This year, GE will be hosting commercial users and officials in nearly 50 cities, showcasing new advanced-technology products and solutions in areas ranging from architectural lighting to retail and outdoor lighting.
According to General Electric Company, the tour kicks off in Miami, Fla. this week and concludes in Hendersonville, N.C. on September 20 after stops in 57 cities across North America.
This year, on-board exhibits include products in-use, educational information and innovative solutions, all focused on helping lighting customers reduce energy. A new lighting-control solutions section highlights ways to make lighting operations easier to manage by adopting a low-maintenance control format.
The latest floating, sleek and stylish 2X2 Lumination LED Edge light fixture will be suspended onsite, along with several new product lines including the GE ConstantColor CMH Integral PAR 38 lamps, a replacement option that is four times more energy efficient than the Halogen PAR 38 lamp which will soon be eliminated. Refrigerated display case lighting, outdoor signage, indoor LED solutions and more will be featured this year.
In addition to the opportunity to see the latest lighting technology first-hand, visitors will have direct access to onsite GE experts who will be available to analyze specific lighting application challenges and objectives.
The 2011 GE Lighting Revolution Tour reached 47 U.S. and Canadian cities last year hosting almost 10,000 total visitors over the course of 10 months.
