Wednesday opening reception
On Wednesday, 30. October, 2013 the event will be officially opened with a cocktail reception. Joachim Ritter, editor-in-chief of the Professional Lighting Design magazine and Chair of the PLDC Steering Committee and representatives from the Platinum Sponsors will welcome all attendees. The reception and subsequent get-together is co-hosted by the partner for the evening, Selux. The opening reception offers a platform for communication and for sharing first thoughts about the pre-convention meetings that occurred during the day and expectations of the coming convention!
The opening reception is open to all conference ticket holders.
Thursday evening get-together
After a full day at the convention centre, conference attendees will be invited to go on a “cultural excursion” (… more information to follow shortly), after which VIA and XAL will welcome convention attendees to the XAL showroom for an evening get-together! In a relaxed atmosphere, guests will have the chance to enjoy the rest of the day with chilled drinks and cool sounds!
Friday – ‘free’ evening
It has become a tradition that the Friday evening during PLDC is free for attendees to spend as they wish. You may like to attend one of the events organised by the sponsoring manufacturers or co-ordinate your evening with friends and business partners.
Saturday Gala Dinner
PLDC concludes with a Gala Dinner on Saturday, 2. November, 2013.
The seated dinner provides a framework for closer networking with colleagues and business partners in a special location.
The main focus of the evening is the Professional Lighting Design Recognition Awards ceremony. The PLDR Award recognises those individuals, practices, institutions or industry partners who have contributed most in their work, actions and deeds to the advancement of Architectural Lighting Design as a recognized profession.
The PLDC organisers have re-designed the Awards ceremony, which will be incorporated into an exciting cultural programme. The hosts for the evening are looking forward to welcoming guests to a memorable show!
PLDC 2013 party
Following the Gala Dinner and Awards Show, the evening will finish with a PLDC 2013 Party, offering all lighting enthusiasts the opportunity to celebrate light on the dance floor!
All Gala Dinner guests and ticket holders will have an entrance pass to the PLDC 2013 Party.
Tickets for the party only, can be reserved. Registration will be online from February onwards.
