If you are a Lighting Designer, Lighting Architect, Researcher, Universities, industry or end-user please feel welcome at the next edition of PLDC as a platform to meet, learn about the latest developments in lighting design, and discuss the future of the lighting profession. PLDC stands for high quality knowledge transfer and international networking opportunities.
Based on the successful proven concept, PLDC will again be built around a three-day professional conference offering approximately 70 presentations given by high-profile speakers. All submissions will be blind-reviewed by an independent jury of experts from the lighting business. The convention will also include invited Keynote Speakers, a sponsoring partners’ meeting area, pre-convention meetings, social events, self-running electronic poster presentations and a Gala Dinner during which the Professional Lighting Design Recognition Awards will be given for outstanding achievements in Architectural Lighting Design.
PLDC offers further and continuing education in the field of lighting design and the presentation of cutting-edge technologies. PLDC 2015 will comprise the next chapter in a history of successful conventions. The convention offers a communication platform for established lighting designers, researchers, students, manufacturers, city planners, architects and related professions to network, exchange and share knowledge and new approaches in the field of light and lighting.
This year’s motto is a clear announcement and appeal for more education in the field of architectural lighting design. On the one hand, lighting design is an independent profession and the scope of work and value of working with a lighting designer needs to be communicated to related professions, clients and end-users. On the other hand, new technologies and the scope they offer, as well as the latest research findings, also demonstrate the need for more education on the part of the lighting designer him-/herself to ensure all clients’ needs and forthcoming standards can be met.
PLDC 2015 will address education on both levels, taking the lighting design community’s efforts a step further and contributing towards all involved being able to make an educated decision in future!
