Illumination Engineering Society

Illumination Engineering Society

The IES is an organization based in New York City whose membership is comprised of Lighting Professionals from around the world.

In 2007, IES held their Annual Conference in St. Louis where they worked with Fogarty team members to produce their Illumination Awards. Over the years this relationship continued to grow. Fogarty now partners with the IES on conception, staging, production, and coordination of their Annual Conference which includes the Illumination Awards. They also produce and stage the annual Street and Area Lighting Conference, the Roadway Conference along with smaller meetings throughout the country.

In 2017, Fogarty began working closely with Tom Butters, the new Director of Education. Working hand-in-hand, they have recorded, produced and edited a variety of videos for the Education section of the IES website. These include the Trailblazers and Icons Series, Indispensable Lighting Series and series of online CEU videos.

Quote from Tom Butters

“After a lot of very hard and incredible work by Susan and Ralph, I can now present to all of you with what we believe is the final product of the joint IES, AIAU and IALD Production of “Lights of the Round”. Susan and Ralph, I’m standing and applauding.“I mean it. You guys are the best. Working with you is the best part of my job”.

Warm Regards,
Tom Butters, LC
Director of Education, IES
