What makes PLDC so different?
Fifth reason: The lighting design community knows no borders.
There are national groups and there are specialists, there are designers, researchers, educators, architects and clients, employers and employees, students and manufacturers. But at PLDC everyone has a place and a voice, everyone is part of it, a community moving together towards the market and design trends of the future.
PLDC is more than just a conference. Every two years like-minded people meet to share new knowledge and experience, to expand their own skills and know-how, or to discuss real projects. PLDC is not a conference in the traditional sense. PLDC is an inspiration, a continuing professional development opportunity, a feel-good experience, a happening, and a place to meet friends – old and new.
PLDC knows no boundaries between countries and nations, professions, age groups, has no prejudices, creates no unnecessary barriers. Creativity meets experience, research meets practice, and concepts meet applications. The latest technological developments are met with as much interest as the latest findings on the effect of light on human beings, nature and architecture.
PLDC is the time and place where nothing else counts other than the global network of like-minded people and colleagues present in real-life mode. With more than 1700 attendees, PLDC is the biggest and most representative lighting design event in the world that takes place every two years, the starting point for new ideas and input, the Thought Leadership Event for the next two years…
