PLDC stands for Professional Lighting Design Convention

More than a regular convention

The supporting programme for PLDC 2018 in Singapore offers a range of wellestablished formats. The Professional Lighting Design Convention, PLDC will take place at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre from 25. – 27. October, 2018. The conference programme provides many impulses for discussion and debate that continue after the speakers’ presentations. Some topics and key focus groups require additional time outside the regular conference schedule, which has led to the development of a
preconvention programme, this year taking place on 25. October, 2018, preceding the opening reception in the evening.
Meetings


Thursday, 25. October, 10.00 – 13.00
At the Educators and Researchers meeting, educators attending will be able to report on new programmes, progress being made at / between existing schools, and research programmes. One main topic will be the role universities and research departments can play in contributing towards CPD for practising lighting designers, CPD being essential for gaining recognition of the profession. Attendance is free of charge, to register please contact Franziska Ritter, fritter@via-internet.com. The Cities’ Forum will serve as a discussion platform for city officials, urban planners and other lighting professional working for cities who are currently investigating the potential and sense of digitalisation in the public realm. Besides presentations, the Cities’ Forum incorporates a work-in-progress session and moderated F2F talks. To register for the Cities’ Forum please use the registration form here.

Excursions to iconic projects have proven to be a popular part of the PLDC preconvention day programme for years.
