The Lighting Industry Association (LIA) has announced that it will officially launch its Academy on 28 September 2016 with a VIP lunch and guest speakers.

The launch follows the Academy’s recent announcement of a formal partnership with the University of South Wales, to offer recognised qualifications in lighting.

The event will feature presentations by industry figures, as well as a tour of the Academy and the LIA Laboratory.

Steve Davies, CEO of the LIA, said: “We’re inviting our LIA members to save the date in their diaries. Formal invitations to the LIA Academy official launch will be sent out shortly.”
