SVL | May 2016
Just 7 Days 'til The Summit!      

Smart Vision Lights' first-ever Innovative Illumination Summit is coming up fast, and we're getting excited. From the looks of things, so are you - already we have nearly 100 registered attendees. If you haven't registered, there are only a few days left to reserve a spot, so act fast!

We've been getting lots of questions about how to schedule fun stuff too, like nearby golf, tours, the Leland Wine & Food festival, fishing, best places to eat, etc. Good news there: We're setting up an SVL concierge service next to registration to help you handle the arrangements without getting in the way of the technical presentations.

We look forward to seeing you June 8-10 in Traverse City, Michigan!
