In a reworking of the previous Masterclasses, each LightByte event provided a day of peer reviewed, bitsize presentations focusing on the key factors relating to the following topics:





Each of the speakers delivered a presentation on an aspect of each of these four topics, with an opportunity for a discussion after each session. 

The speakers for the 2017-18 series were Les Thomas MSLL, Fagerhult, Helen Loomes FSLL, Trilux, Roger Sexton MSLL, Xicato and Graeme Shaw MSLL, Zumtobel. We were also joined by digital engineering specialist, Carl Collins, CIBSE.

Each year all of the presentations are brand new and peer reviewed, providing the opportunity to add 4.5 hours to your CPD.

The new structure will be continued for the 2018-19 series and is designed to cover the most relevant and pressing issues which currently face the lighting industry, as well as generating debate and discussion between those within the lighting community and in associated industries.

The 2017-18 SLL Lighting Knowledge Series was supported by:
