Established in the late 1980s, the Lux Pacifica is an international platform for organizing lighting conferences with the lighting societies of the Pacific Basin region. The Lighting societies of India, China, Japan, Thailand, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, South Africa, Mexico, Taiwan, South Korea and Vietnam are associated with this movement.

One of the goals of the conferences organized by Lux Pacifica with its associated lighting societies is to make a conscious effort to promote good lighting design (by having special lighting design sessions), as well as to expedite the development of lighting technologies along with lighting education.
