The LFI Innovation Awards ceremony always serves as a nice launch pad for all of the events that take place at the Lightfair show. The ceremony presents the finalists and winners of this annual competition. Lightfair officials note the award winners exemplify the industry’s most innovative products and designs introduced during the past year.
