PLDC 2013 Update
Friendly reminder – early registration ends in May
Preparations for PLDC 2013 are running smoothly but at full power and as usual with great attention to detail. PLDC is arousing tremendous interest, which in turn reflects the community’s interest in the new trends and changes within the lighting design industry.
The numbers of visitors to the PLDC website during the month of April corresponds to the immense growth in interest. The numbers recorded are twice as high as in the years before. Cumulative values have also doubled in comparison to previous years. We counted 20,000 unique visitors on our website up to the end of April.
We are happy to say this trend is also apparent in the current number of registrations for the event. By the end of April, along with the website values mentioned above, the number of registrations had already risen by over 120 per cent compared previous events.
Our team of organisers strongly recommends people to take advantage of the early registration rates and to plan their itineraries and hotel reservations as early as possible.
The pre-registration phase including best possible ticket prices ends on 24. May, 2013!

In 2013, Lichtforum NRW will begin with an initial training programme for members from the lighting industry, followed by other seminars, services and collaborative research and development projects.
