PLDC has expanded to Asia and America and will now be an annual event!
PLDC aims to establish the lighting design profession in its own right and on a global scale. Now taking place on an annual basis, the next convention will be from 25 - 27 October 2018, in Singapore. The motto for the 2018 convention will be 'a smart move.'
PLDC 2019 and 2021 are both scheduled to take place in Europe, with PLDC 2020 planned to take place on New York.
PLDC is organised by VIA Events, the Educational Events Division of VIA Verlag, who publish the Professional Lighting Design Magazine. The first PLDC took place in London on 2007. Professionals from different fields of practice and research came together to discuss and exchange ideas, approaches and concepts. The international and interdisciplinary understanding of lighting design that PLDC generates also supports the ongoing process to gain recognition for lighting design as a specialist discipline, and for the profession as a whole.
