LED Outdoor Fixtures for Convention Centers
What's the best LED Convention Center light?
The best way to determine what the best light is for your convention center is to create a Convention Center lighting plan.
A convention center lighting plan simulates your indoor area or outdoor parking lot. It places lights, either in existing locations or in new locations, and calculates how bright and well lit the conventions center floor will be. We can build a custom convention center lighting plan for Free.
Considerations When Buying Convention Center LEDs
1. Energy Efficiency
LED convention center lights have high efficiency. Most convention centers realize up to 75% energy savings after replacing old lighting. Considering the lights are on for several hours a day, centers can save thousands of dollars.
Smart LED fixtures feature daylight harvesting and presence detection systems. These further reduce the amount of energy consumed. The daylight harvesting features can dim, turn on and off in response to daylight. Presence detection sensors switch the lights on when there’s any movement and off when there’s none.
LEDs generate much less heat than other light sources. This keeps the temperature in the convention center low and reduces air conditioning. Less air conditioning results in less energy use.
2. Converting to LED in your convention center provides almost Zero Maintenance
Another feature of LEDs that saves centers is the low maintenance over the lifespan. They have a long rated life of 50,000-100,000 hours, meaning that you won’t have to worry about replacing them often.
Convention centers upgraded to LEDs are saving because of the low maintenance costs. Replacing lamps, ballasts, and labor involved consume time and money better spent elsewhere.
3. Superior Performance
Convention center LED lights produce high-quality light. The importance of this cannot be undermined for a convention center. During exhibitions, light enhances product appeal, capturing customers’ attention. They can examine the details, textures, and colors of various products.
Good illumination also gives visitors a positive impression about the venue and brand. It influences the purchasing behavior of customers, leading to more sales for businesses. Bright light also provides a clean and fresh appearance. It makes the venue attractive and visitors are able to enjoy events more.
4. High Quality Light - Color Rendering Indexes (CRI)
LEDs have high color rendering indexes and make objects appear as in natural light. In convention centers, the exhibited products and venue look good because of the high CRI.
Lights with a CRI of 80 and above make the colors of the displayed products to pop and the textures to stand out. They look more attractive and people are able to see the details better. Exhibitors may make more sales and the convention center may get repeat business.
5. Instant Brightness
Convention center LED lights provide instant brightness. They do not have a restrike time; when you switch them off, you can switch them on again immediately. In case the power goes off suddenly during an event, event attendees are not covered in darkness. Also, frequent turning on and off does not affect their performance. Which is very common with fluorescent lamps.
6. Flexible and Controllable
LEDs are compatible with lighting control systems like dimmers and occupancy sensors. You can easily integrate the controls in an already existing LED lighting system or buy lights with pre-installed controls. Lighting controls help to further enhance energy efficiency. Some LEDs are tunable and have different color temperatures to create the right atmosphere for each time of the day.
7. Focused Lighting
LED lighting is directional and focuses light exactly where required. During an exhibition, different LED lights illuminate different areas of the convention center. Some lights can highlight the products to make them more appealing to visitors.
8. Light Uniformity
LEDs produce uniform light. The light is just enough and does not create shadows or dark spots. This means that all areas of the convention center will be bright. Accidents and other dangers are eliminated by LED lights
