PLDC 2013 Update
PLDC 2013 Partners’ presentations
As another new feature this year, we offered the Partner Associations and Partner Universities of PLDC 2013 the opportunity to provide a short presentation of their goals, activities or courses.
As we upload the presentations to our website, we would like to thank all our partners for their support. We are looking forward to welcoming them back for PLDC 2015 in Rome!
Evening events in Copenhagen
After a day of intensive discussions and input, it is always good to gather and share thoughts with friends and colleagues in the evening.
On Wednesday, 30. October, 2013 the event will be officially opened with a cocktail reception.
After an exciting first day at the conference all attendees will have the chance to enjoy the rest of Thursday, 31. October, 2013 with chilled drinks and cool sounds at an evening get-together at Toldboden nightclub.
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.
PLDC concludes with a Gala Dinner on Saturday, 2. November, 2013. Following the Gala Dinner and Awards Show, the evening will close with a PLDC 2013 Party, offering all lighting enthusiasts the opportunity to celebrate light on the dance floor!
Gala Dinner venue confirmed!
The PLDC team of organisers are proud to present this year’s Gala Dinner venue!
The extraordinary and exciting venue bears the name Lokomotivværkstedet, which is Danish for “train workshop”. We were always good for surprises!!
The rustic building makes for the perfect setting for a magical journey – dinner guests will be transported from reality to illusion and back without even noticing …
We look forward to a memorable evening, a sparkling awards show and a great party to end the night!

New components at PLDC!
This year PLDC will be offering a series of moderated discussions on some of the main topics of the conference. Brief but tightly focussed panel discussions of around 30 minutes will be offered, for example, on the topics of ‘Lighting in museums’ and ‘Lighting in hospitals and healthcare facilities’.
Lighting designers, architects, industry and clients will be discussing cutting-edge approaches, research findings, and the questions – and answers – they give rise to.
Discussions to be held in the PLDC lounge:
- Thursday, 31. October, 2013 – 13.30 to 14.00: The Professional Lighting Design community – what is it and what does this mean?
- Friday, 1. November, 2013 – 13.30 to 14.00: Museum lighting – where scientific research is taking us and what the repercussions for lighting design in museums are
- Saturday, 2. November, 2013 – 13.30 to 14.00: Lighting for hospitals and healthcare facilities – how lighting influences healing processes and patients’ well being
The moderated discussions are free-of-charge and open for all to attend.
