The National Lighting Bureau (NLB) has announced the recipients of its inaugural Lighting Transformation Awards at the NALMCO Annual Conference held recently in Indian Wells, California.

Mary Beth Gotti, Chair of the Lighting Transformation Awards and NLB, expressed, “We are delighted to introduce a lighting design award program that acknowledges unparalleled innovation and thoughtful design in lighting retrofit solutions.”
