Lightapalooza: The Custom Integration Market Lighting Show

Lightapalooza: The Custom Integration Market Lighting Show


A different kind of lighting show has been quietly growing. Lightapalooza will be holding its 3rd annual conference & trade show, February 26-29, 2024, at the Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel & Spa, in Glendale, AZ. The event is organized by the Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA), a national association of specialty retailers and custom integrators who design and install high performance technology systems.

The first year of Lightapalooza (2022) had 200 integrators, reps, and manufacturers in attendance. The 2023 event had almost 750 attendees, 30 hours of educational sessions, and double the number of exhibitors from the year before. The next Lightapalooza 2024 will offer 103 hours of educational sessions, 64 total sessions with 38 sessions included with registration. 2024 will also have almost 50 exhibitors in 12,000 square feet of exhibit space. See the exhibitors and show floor map here.

Lightapalooza is a third example of new trade shows focussed on lighting controls. The other two being the DLC Controls Summit and NYControlled. More information on Lightapalooza 2024 can be found here.
