This year's Conference featured both CLVLT and COLD certification training sessions, numerous industry experts as speakers, educational seminars, a grand Expo and its annual awards reception where professional excellence in outdoor lighting design is honored each year.

“As a first time attendee, I found the Conference to be enlightening and a great learning environment. I walked away with numerous actionable takeaways that I am now applying to my business - it was money well spent. Before the end of the Conference, I paid my deposit for next year and am looking forward to the 2013 AOLP Conference in Atlanta.”
- Rick Bequette, Brilliant Nights, Tampa, FL

“It was a great experience being able to meet so many other talented design professionals and to be a part of such an educational weekend. This was my first Conference and AOLP did a tremendous job in all aspects of making the experience educational, informative and engaging.”
- Matt Carli, Moonlighting Landscape Lighting Systems, Charleston, SC

“Every year that I make the decision to invest in myself and attend I find it worthwhile - I think the conference is the best opportunity available anywhere to meet face-to-face with lighting design professionals, manufacturers, distributors, etc. It's always a good kick-off to my season - meeting and talking with the high level of professionals who attend also always raises the bar and causes me to push myself that much harder to excel in my own business practices.”
- Scott Ruhoff, CLVLT, After Dark Landscape Lighting, Boise, Idaho

“I learned a lot and had a great time at the AOLP Conference. I only wish that I attended years ago! This is a great way to keep in touch with the industry and the other professionals that are in it. See you next year!”
- Leon Hordyk, Shademaster Landscaping Ltd., Waterdown, ON Canada

“This Conference is a must for any outdoor lighting professional. Nowhere else can you get this quality of education or networking.”
- Matthew Broyles, CLVLT, COLD, Firefly Lighting LLC, Atlanta, GA

“The AOLP Conference is always a highlight of my business year. I always look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. I can keep current with the newest technology and learn the best way to implement it into my business.”
- Bill Knowles, Northern Outdoor Lighting, Billerica, MA
