OVERLAND PARK, Kansas, March 7, 2011 - Lusio Solid-State Lighting, a worldwide brand and division of LightWild,
announced today the delivery of 4,750 high bay LED fixtures to Doha, Qatar,
for the Qatar National Convention Centre extension. Scheduled to open later
this year, the project will add 850,000 square feet, a significant feat for a
convention centre.

Lusio ( lighting was specified by Burns &
McDonnell, the Prime Architectural and Engineering firm for the project, and
lighting designers Yarnell & Associates and LightWorks. The stringent
requirements called for a fixture that could be mounted at 40ft (12m),
withstand ceiling temperatures of 115 degrees F to 131 degrees F (45-55
degrees C), deliver at least 50 footcandles overall illuminance with a 40
degree cutoff, and still meet the centre's strict energy caps.

"According to the specifications, the owner wanted a highly technical and
leading edge solution to lighting the exhibition hall space, and metal
halide, fluorescent sources and associated luminaires were not providing the
functional requirements," said Tom Stafford, President and CEO of LightWild
and Lusio Solid-State Lighting. "Lusio had already achieved UL and CE
approvals for a fixture rated at 60 degrees C and we were able to provide LED
high bay fixtures to meet the requirements and help achieve lighting goals."

"The Lusio fixtures are a high-quality, well-built choice for this
project," said Bruce Yarnell, Principal of Yarnell Associates, Architectural
Lighting Design. "The fixtures delivered the clean source cutoff and the
aesthetically sleek profile originally conceptualized for the project. Lusio
also exceeded very demanding performance specifications."
