"VISITS" is an acronym for "Very Important Specifiers Invited to Santa Barbara".

In the Spring and Fall each year, BEGA hosts these day-long seminars in our state-of-the-art 1200 sq. ft. showroom/training facility here in Carpinteria, CA.

Guests arrive in Santa Barbara on Thursday for the group’s first get together that evening at a great local restaurant. On Friday, they are transported to the BEGA factory for a day filled with education, networking, idea sharing, gourmet food – and yes – even fun!

Topics discussed include materials used for outdoor applications (metals, glass, etc.), competitive comparisons and new product developments (lamp and ballast discussions).

Attendees, who are eligible, earn five (5) LEU's from the A.I.A. These learning units may also be used for educational credit toward LC requirements for members of the IALD and I.E.S.

During their stay our guests are housed at the beautiful beachside Harbor View Inn in downtown Santa Barbara. On Saturday they are free to explore the local area, which is filled with opportunities to shop, sightsee, whale watch, dine, wine taste, or simply relax and unwind.

Since VISITS is by invitation only, and each session is limited in size, if you are interested in attending a future program, please express your interest to your local BEGA representative.
