February 1-4, 1998, the Energy Efficient Lighting Association (EELA) will sponsor Enlightening America '98, a conference and trade show that will be held at the Grand Kempinski Dallas Hotel. "The EELA conference goal is to help building owners move the upgrading of their lighting systems from the 'we should do it' to the 'let's get it done' stage," explains Jeffrey Barnhart, EELA's executive director. "It brings together industry team members, energy-efficient products, and project expertise for one-stop shopping."

Exhibitors include Advance Transformer Co., A.L.P. Lighting, and The Watt Stopper. Products to be exhibited include ballasts, fixtures, lamps, reflectors, controls, and light guides from 3M Lighting, Howard Industries, Lexalite International, Mytech, Renova, Venture Lighting, and others.
