GALLERY: LEDs Magazine celebrates 2023 BrightStar Awards at LightFair

June 7, 2023
The LEDs Magazine team visited with BrightStar Awards Honorees in attendance at the Javits Center for LightFair's 2023 edition.

During LightFair on May 23, LEDs Magazine team spent face-time delivering BrightStar Awards to representatives of companies that received Honoree recognition in this year's program. A panel of industry experts reviewed each submission, assigning it a score from zero to 5 stars. Products receiving an average score of 3.5 stars or higher were named BrightStar Awards Honorees.

What stood out among all the meetings was the excitement and appreciation expressed by each organization in receiving industry acknowledgment for advancing LED and solid-state lighting technology across several areas: reliability; energy and operational efficiency; ease of integration, installation, or use; and innovation in addressing specific applications. Programs like the BrightStar Awards continue to demonstrate strong participation, which shores up the value of assessing recently released products as benchmarks for emerging trends, advances in previous generation features, and indicators of market expansion.

Although we were unable to meet with some of the BrightStar Awards recipients live, we would love to share and highlight your company's recognition in our gallery when you receive your shipped awards. Please email Carrie Meadows with any photos you would like to share on the LEDs Magazine website, with names and titles of any personnel appearing in the images, and we will continue to add them.

Please feel free to download slideshow images showing your company's awards for marketing and social media efforts, and credit Endeavor Business Media.
