TiL 2018: Embracing all the opportunities that come with profound change

TiL 2018 is the lighting industry conference designed to encourage the cross-discipline, professional and creative application of digital light and embrace all the opportunities that come with the profound changes in the lighting industry. The doors to the event will open in just one week.

TiL 2018 demonstrates a vision that lighting design is not limited to architecture and luminaires, but instead encompasses design in the broadest sense, as well as a sound understanding of the digital ecosystem.

Just like in music and photography, digitization means that everyone can now get involved in lighting design; it's simple, safe, creative and fun. It is so empowering.  Moreover, thanks to the digital nature of new lighting technology, scientific findings in areas such a wellbeing, health, safety and productivity are now much easier to translate into viable, economical and desirable solutions in the real world.

Embracing all the opportunities that come with profound change

The event is a call-to-arms for keen and curious minds. The organisers want the attendees to use their experience of TiL 2018 to fuel their ability to spot the opportunities with light, broaden their horizons and widen their imaginations.

“I want to create a venue for the new paradigms of the lighting industry. A platform to connect the established with the new, and a place where technology meets science. Engineers engage with coders, users brief creators. I know change is not just around the corner, but we have to start somewhere and we have to start soon.  TiL 2018 is that starting point.  It leads to a new and exciting future of lighting design for everyone.” Rogier van der Heide, Event Curator.

Debating this new and exciting future for lighting design will be 3 extraordinary expert panels.
