The Vu1 team wrapped up an exhilarating first day at Lightfair 2012 – the world’s largest lighting trade show – in Las Vegas. Visits to our booth were non-stop, with interest expressed from all facets of the lighting business – distributors, media representatives, rebate companies, scientists, students – even a representative from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) spent time learning about our proprietary ESL technology. In fact, we learned that interest in – and prospective purchasers of — the Vu1 ESL bulbs may come from avenues that we hadn’t anticipated.
The day began on a high-note, as Vu1 was recognized as one of a handful of nominees for the Lightfair International Innovation Awards in the conventional light replacement category. It’s a pretty heady achievement for Vu1, in a category dominated by larger companies, and almost entirely by LED manufacturers.
In fact, Vu1 offers a notable counterpoint at Lightfair this year, with more than half of the exhibitors displaying some form of LED lighting solution. We repeatedly answered the question of “what exactly is ESL anyway?” and were met with almost universal acceptance for our technology, attributes and price point.
We look forward to reporting to you after Days 2 and 3 of the show. Thank you for your continued interest in Vu1.
