Managing Editor, Line Goyette Players of all sizes and backgrounds

We often talk about all the new players coming and going in the lighting industry, shaking our heads with good reason over industry members who have not invested in infrastructure, in public and staff training, or in research of a technical, social or aesthetic nature, take market share, and who consequently slow the development of a healthy industry.
