BRUSSELS, BEGIUM 15 OCTOBER 2020 | The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), announces its Enlighten Europe 2020 will be held online for the first time on 18-19 November 2020 and registration is open. The premier conference for the international lighting design community, Enlighten Europe draws a diverse audience of leading lighting designers, lighting manufacturers and suppliers, educators, students, and other related design professionals. This is the first time Enlighten Europe is offered online, making it accessible to a broader audience of professionals in the international lighting community.
“IALD has represented the profession of lighting design for over fifty 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, IALD. “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 our lighting community together in new and exciting ways at a time when staying connected matters most. This year’s “taste” of Enlighten Europe features the fun and interactive “Light Playground,” special social gatherings, engaging breakout discussions and 15 luminaries of lighting from around the world—all of which can be enjoyed from the comfort of home or office.
The IALD is also offering the popular Lighting Cross Talk, now online, where leading lighting designers join lighting manufacturers in small groups for focused discussion about future product designs and needs in the marketplace. Additionally, IALD is hosting virtual exhibit rooms for sponsors to connect directly with attendees during the event.
“Given the challenges that many businesses are experiencing this year, the IALD is offering its Enlighten Europe 2020 registration at a significantly reduced rate,” states IALD CEO Marsha Turner, CAE. “This decision was made so that our European members can easily connect with each other and gain valuable access to continue their professional development.”
