(Europe) – IALD’s Enlighten Europe conference to be held online on 18-19 November.
The IALD has announced that registration is now open for Enlighten Europe 2020. The conference will be held online for the first time this year, owing to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, and will take place on 18-19 November.
A popular fixture in the international lighting design community, Enlighten Europe draws a diverse audience of lighting designers, manufacturers and suppliers, educators, students and other related design professionals. The shift online makes the conference more accessible to a broader audience of professionals in the international lighting community.
“IALD has represented the profession of lighting design for more than 50 years, and this year, it is more important than ever to be that central point of connection for the greater lighting community,” said IALD President, Douglas Leonard.
“Our European members and friends have been looking forward to being together this year. While we are unable to meet in person, IALD’s Enlighten Europe 2020 online is our opportunity to bring our European lighting community together, foster personal connections, share learnings and participate in a new virtual experience.”
Created for and by lighting designers, Enlighten Europe 2020 online is designed to bring the lighting community together in new and exciting ways, at a time when staying connected matters most. This year’s event will feature the interactive “Light Playground”, special social gatherings, engaging breakout discussions and 15 luminaries of lighting from around the world. Speakers at this year’s event include: Andreas Schulz (Licht Kunst Licht); Monica Lobo (LD Studio); Julia Hartmann (Lightsphere); Kai Piippo (Light Bureau); Carla Wilkins (Lichtvision); Kaoru Mende (LPA); Dawn Hollingsworth (Darkhorse Lightworks); and former IALD President David Ghatan (CM Kling + Associates), among others.
“Given the challenges that many businesses are experiencing this year, the IALD is offering its Enlighten Europe 2020 registration at a significantly reduced rate,” added Marsha Turner, IALD CEO. “This decision was made so that our European members can easily connect with each other and gain valuable access to continue their professional development.”
