The Society of Light and Lighting Masterclasses were introduced in 2004 in response to demand for provision of lighting events regionally in the UK. Each series comprises of seven or eight one-day seminars, plus a shortened schedule which is held at the LuxLive exhibition every November. 

Each Masterclass venue around the UK and Ireland is of high quality and interest. The overall theme and paper topics for each Masterclass series is agreed at the start of the year between the Society and the Sponsors. Each sponsor provides a ‘Master' to give their peer reviewed presentation and the Society provide a guest speaker at each event.

We are pleased to announce that members of the Electrical Contractors Association will also receive the SLL Members rate to attend. Please complete the interactive booking form and return it to
