Why do these restrictions on lighting exist?

The Las Vegas Convention Center experienced several fire safety incidents in the past as a result of lighting hazards. LVCVA addressed this concern by implementing regulations on halogen lighting used in their facility. Since then, nearly all of the other casino convention centers in Las Vegas have adopted these regulations.
