Social Media Workshop: Facebook
Speaker: Leslie Carothers

As the second session in Leslie’s three-part series, this hands-on seminar will cover how to execute a results-driven Facebook campaign.

What to Look For on a Spec Sheet

Speaker: Peter Romaniello, IALD
Time: 12 – 1:30 p.m.
In this seminar, attendees will learn how to work with a customer “layout” for recessed lighting and how to research, compare and analyze a variety of fixtures that will work best for customers’ needs.

Specifying Linear Light Sources
What to Look For & What to Avoid

Speaker: Peter Romaniello, IALD
Time: 4 – 5 p.m.
Linear light sources are second only to recessed lights in terms of frequency of use in residences and things that can become problematic. In this seminar, Peter will explain how to consider remote drivers, integral drivers, ELV, MLV, 0-10, extrusions, lenses, color consistency and size. Attendees will discuss what to look for in selecting a fixtures solution for common needs, like undercabinet, cove and cabinet accent lights, and will learn how to incorporate LED strips into just about any piece of cabinetry or millwork while avoiding issues for both the installer and the customer.

Friday, Jan. 18
Taking the Fear out of Lighting Control Systems
Speaker: Peter Romaniello, IALD
Time: 9 – 10 a.m.
In this seminar, attendees will learn why lighting controls and system integration are here to stay, and are only becoming more popular. Peter will discuss the systems designed by AV Integration companies and identify smaller systems for projects that might not have the budget or need for an AV Integration Specialist. Attendees will learn how showrooms can address customers’ growing interest in lighting controls, how to design a lighting control system, how to document the system design, who is responsible for programming, and what the options are.
