ILP announces Professional Lighting Summit returns

21st February 2022

(UK) – The Institution of Lighting Professionals announced that the Professional Lighting Summit, their annual conference, is returning in 2022. 

It will be a two day event, held on 21- 22 June at Watershed in Bristol, UK and online. The event will be a focus for all those involved in lighting to get together to share expertise, discuss new ideas, understand technical and legal changes to the community, and ultimately to provide each attendee with information on how to carry out their role more effectively.

The ILP is designing a programme of CPD content valuable for lighting engineers, designers, consultants, contractors and other professionals. 

The Institution has launched a ‘Call for Papers’ and is looking for speakers. Submissions are invited now from everyone who has a lighting story to tell. Welcomed topics for discussion include: Interesting topics, expert knowledge, inspirational talks, case studies, exclusive papers that haven’t been given elsewhere.

Prospective speakers should email Jo Bell – – telling her:

  • The author’s full name, role and organisation       
  • The author’s email, postal address, mobile and landline telephone numbers      
  • The title of the proposed paper
  • 250-500 words describing the paper with enough information for the reviewers to make an informed decision
  • Details of any event or publication that has previously featured the paper.

    This is a professional career development opportunity and organisers are very supportive of first time speakers. Marketing ‘sales pitches’ are not allowed. Applications should come from the speaker themselves.  

Submission deadline is 1 March. Alongside the Continuous Professional Development portion of the event, there will also be times for networking, and an exhibition. Details on how companies can support this event by taking up exhibition and sponsorship opportunities will be released soon.
