As a Lightfair attendee, I

As a Lightfair attendee, I must agree with everything Ms. Van Zeyl wrote about the show...high energy, diverse crowd, and some beautiful LED lamps. However, as a LED retrofit professional, I must disagree with the last statement in the article. LED lamps do not have the "enhance" an environment to make them appealing to end users. We have seen time and again that LED lamps simply need to look similar to their incandescent counterparts to be acceptable. Once a client is made fully aware of the amazing money savings potential of an LED retrofit, "good" light is perfectly acceptable. "Great" light is often pushed aside for lower CRI and lower priced alternates. Economics, not aesthetics will usher in the LED revolution.
