Retail Lighting Symposium Planned 

Voorhees, NJ (May 10, 2006) -- Service Lamp Corporation announced plans for the first Retail Showroom Lighting Symposium to be held July 18 at the Philips Lighting Applications center in Somerset, New Jersey. The symposium will bring a broad range of retailers together to discuss retail lighting techniques and technologies. Ground transportation, meals and lodging will be provided to all participants attending the industry event.

Bill Tortora, Vice President, Philips Lighting Company, will open the one-day symposium.  Philips Lighting Company and Service Lamp Corporation announced a distribution partnership to improve communication between Philips and the furniture Industry in July 2005.  The lighting symposium is designed to provide a forum for furniture retailers.

Following an informative exchange with lighting experts, furniture retailers will voice their opinions to a panel charting the course of retail lighting.  Michael Konczyk, Regional National Account Manager, Juno Lighting and Leendert Enthoven, Phillips MasterColor Market Development Manager have been named to the industry panel.  Service Lamp expects to name other panel members and speakers soon.

Invitations for a very limited number of seats are being sent to Top 100 retailers, regional chains and retailers with multiple stores.  The goal of this selection process is to provide a wide cross-section of industry views. Retailers interested in participating can self-nominate by contacting Service Lamp at 800-222-5467.  

Located at the Philips Lighting Company North American headquarters in Somerset, New Jersey, the Lighting Application Center offers more than twenty thousand square feet of demonstrations and applications. The Lighting Application Center is well recognized for its outstanding ability to communicate first hand—and in full scale—the art, science and experience of light.
