Strategies in Light 2009

Feb. 19, 2009
The 10th annual Strategies in Light business-oriented conference and exhibition on high-brightness LEDs took place on February 18-20 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.
Strategies in Light is the leading conference and tradeshow for the high-brightness LED marketplace, and celebrated its 10th year this year.

The 2009 event was extremely successful, with more than 2000 registrations, an increase of more than 33% over 2008. The mood was very buoyant, and the industry appears to be optimistic about the future for LED lighting, despite the general economic gloom that has hit other LED markets.
