Website development

The Lighting Industry Association launched this new website in March 2016, to provide a modern digital platform for the LIA. With further releases scheduled throughout 2016, our aim is to incrementally improve our offer in direct response to member feedback, providing a dedicated resource for the lighting industry.

The new site is designed to provide a flexible foundation, with a series of smaller releases scheduled for further development. We have a lot of ideas for improving our online services, but are eager to be responsive to feedback and member-demand. Our approach maintains the flexibility to incorporate ideas from a range of sources, ensuring the platform continues to grow and be relevant in the future.

We are committed to using this approach to bring constant improvement in all areas, including improved Member services, greater prominnce for ICEL and member products, and enhancements to the Laboratory and Academy offers.
