Brands and Retailers share their LED Experiences at AATCC Lighting Conference

You cannot control what happens as the world transitions to new LED light sources, but you can position your company to put your product in the “best light”. As a Brand and/or Retail market leader, you recognize that color is a major factor in your customer’s decision process and work tirelessly to identify the color that will lead to the purchase of your product. You also know that lighting plays a major role in how color is perceived and that different light sources affect how colors of objects and products are viewed.
