Building on the success of the ARC Show, LiGHT 22 is a lighting trade show, of which designing lighting (dl) is a proud sponsor, meant specifically for specifiers and designers. The show will take place on 22-23 November at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. The intention of the show is to provide an exhibition that focuses on lighting design and specification, with lighting manufacturers showcasing their latest product lines alongside a two day talks program and a late-night drinks event.
[d]arc media Managing Director Paul James said of the new event: “I am very excited to announce the launch of the LiGHT exhibition at the Business Design Centre next November. The lighting industry has many happy memories of The ARC Show at the BDC over a decade ago and we want to bring that spirit back to the lighting event calendar.
“There is a new breed of lighting specifiers and suppliers that weren’t part of the industry then so didn’t have the chance to experience the event. This will bring friends, old and new, together to do business and network in a friendly, dynamic environment. I am confident that the time is right to create a boutique lighting event in a fantastic venue in London, the world hub of lighting design. I look forward to welcoming everyone there.”
This revival will take place in London, as the UK has the second largest global design industry with lighting playing a vital role in design-led businesses. Over half of the lighting design firms in the UK are located in the Greater London area as well. This concentration of designers and architects in a country that values innovative design sets up LiGHT 22 to be a great success.
LiGHT 22 is free to attend, and registration is now open. designing lighting (dl) is proud to be a sponsor for this year’s show and supporting the industry through successful exhibitions and networking events. We are also excited for the opportunity to report on new developments and announcements that will take place at the show in November.
