New Partner categories

Following the successful partnerships with international lighting associations, universities offering Lighting Design programmes and/or Architecture courses, and media partners, and given the fact that PLDC has become an acknowledged platform for networking and learning for lighting professionals, architects and planners from related disciplines, the PLDC organisers are introducing two new Partner categories for PLDC 2015.

Partner Cities will be invited to discuss lighting in the public realm in the 21st century and to share new ideas for enhancing urban spaces. A dedicated programme will enable city planners and public clients to meet experienced lighting professionals involved in all areas and aspects of public lighting.
Partner Events will have the opportunity to introduce their event during PLDC, giving PLDC attendees the chance to explore potential speaking and continuing professional development opportunities in their respective countries and secure the best possible rate (10% reduction) for admission to Partner Events when they take place.

The first Partners in these new categories will be announced shortly.


The Professional Lighting Design Convention brings together professionals from all around the world to network and discuss the latest developments and trends in the lighting world. Even the most experienced of lighting professionals can deepen their knowledge of specific topics, expand their design skills and improve their professional practice by attending the series of outstanding papers and gaining new perspectives from research results and case study accounts.

Partners of PLDC are professional associations from the field of light and lighting, universities and institutes that run Lighting Design programmes and degree courses for related disciplines, and established online or print media publications that support the event and its target of establishing architectural lighting design as a profession.

Recognition as Official Partner of the global professional lighting design convention is guaranteed whatever category of partnership.
