Ahead of Lightfair 2013

I'll be heading to the world's largest lighting show next week. Tell me what to look for while I'm there.

Lightfair, the architectural and commercial lighting tradeshow and conference, is the event around which lighting suppliers -- large, small, and startup -- plan their announcements. The show is gearing up to welcome 23,000 attendees and more than 500 exhibitors this year.

I have seen plenty of press releases in advance of Lightfair, and they will guide my initial plans. Here are some of the companies and the developments and products they have announced.

In addition, I'll certainly pay visits to the other big names in LED lighting: Acuity (booth 801), Cree (booth 833), GE (booth 2101), and Samsung (booth 2645).

What other news, announcements, or buzz have you heard in advance of Lightfair 2013? What should I absolutely not miss?

If you'll be at Lightfair, please leave a comment below (or drop me an email, if you don't want to be so public). Perhaps we can meet up.
