WAC Lighting hosted its first-ever Landscape Lighting Summit November 4 and 5 at its headquarters in Port Washington, NY.

The event was designed to introduce a key cross-section of landscape professionals, including electrical engineers, irrigation professionals and landscape contractors, to the WAC Lighting Company and its WAC Landscape Lighting brand. The conference shared information on current products, new LED technologies, and concepts for lighting fixtures that were not currently in the marketplace.

“We were very impressed by this distinguished group of landscape lighting pros and their thoughtful interest in our new product line of forward-thinking LED technologies,” said Shelley Wald, president of WAC Lighting. “Our experience in the landscape industry has been above and beyond everything we imagined it would be. This visit only fueled our passion for inventing more exciting products that will solve challenges they face daily in their work.”

Since the event, WAC Lighting has polled a few of the attendees for feedback. According to Ric Sinclair of Hulihan Territory based out of Jacksonville, FL, "The homeowners are delighted with the wide offering of WAC luminaires, and the fact that the lumens can be increased or decreased to fit the homeowners taste. In one case we are lighting a 150-year old massive Oak with seven Spots at full capacity. This Oak display is blowing away everyone who sees it. The owner told us that of the $2 million he spent on this renovation, it is by far the best investment on the job.”

“Such a good experience and wonderful people. The owners, Shelley and Dirk, could not have been nicer people,” added Bob Odynski, of Foegley Landscape Inc., who also attended the Summit.
