Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s News & Insights for July 5, 2023. I hope that everyone who had a holiday this past week has returned refreshed and “ready to rock” as I have. 😊 It’s strange to lead off a newsletter by touting my own promotion to editor-in-chief, but here we are. I appreciate the support from all of my colleagues at Endeavor Business Media who have encouraged me, mentored me and challenged me! over the years, including those former PennWell friends who have since moved on. I’m fortunate to work with a fantastic team and I look forward to growing this brand as the premier resource for professionals involved in LED and lighting technology, business, and applications. I really enjoy hearing from our readers, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with comments, questions, and suggestions for coverage topics, sources, and organizations we should know about.

In this issue:

  • British trade groups LIA and CIBSE go circular with a new program for eco-certified products.
  • If you have questions about wireless outdoor networks for lighting and campus management, register for our July 18 webinar. I’m looking forward to understanding more about the role of Bluetooth Low Energy technology, and I hope you are, too.
