The cornerstones for the establishment of the lighting design profession were laid with the first convention in London/UK in 2007 and the successive event in Berlin/D in 2009! These first steps need to be reinforced and developed! Under the guidance and with inspiration gained from experienced lighting professionals, the new lighting design generation is ready to forge ahead and make their contributions in all fields of lighting design and research!
PLDC is a three-day conference built around four tracks (Lighting Application Case Studies, Exterior Lighting Solutions, Lighting Application Research and Professional Practical Issues) offering around 65 papers from internationally renowned speakers and the next generation of lighting professionals.
The conference is accompanied by an exclusive manufacturers’ exhibition, offering industry partners a platform to present their companies and broaden their business contacts! The first partners in the lighting industry have already confirmed their participation in the event.
Furthermore, PLDC comprises:
- A Gala Dinner at which the PLDR Award will be given for outstanding achievements in lighting design
- Celebration of Light Party
- Vox Juventa – PLDA’s mini-conference for the under 30s
- Pre-Convention Meetings
- A designers’ evening get-together
- Self-running poster presentations
