Four years after it met in Philadelphia, Lightfair International will again convene at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in 2017.

All planners know the importance of looking ahead—the earlier the details fall into place, the less stress one has to deal with as the event nears.

We know Christmas in July sounds crazy, but it really is a planner’s dream. With all the heat and sunshine, winter feels light-years away.
