Edison Report Supports PLDC 2018 in Singapore

We are happy to announce that EdisonReport has again accepted to be an Online Media Partner of the Professional Lighting Design Convention (PLDC). This traditionally bi-annual Convention was created for the global lighting design market. Lighting designers, architects, researchers, universities, industry and clients use PLDC as a platform to meet, learn about the latest developments in lighting design, and discuss the future of the lighting profession. PLDC stands for high quality knowledge transfer and international networking opportunities.

Through this partnership, Edison Report will promote the convention programme which takes place 25th – 27th October, in Singapore. For readers who cannot attend the event in person, your humble Editor will post news and summaries, directly from the convention floor.

PLDC 2018 will held be in Singapore.

Based on the successful proven concept of prior events, PLDC will again be built around a three-day professional conference offering approximately 70 presentations given by high-profile speakers. All submissions will be blind-reviewed by an independent jury of experts from the lighting business. The convention will also include invited Keynote Speakers, a sponsoring partners’ meeting area, pre-convention meetings, social events, self-running electronic poster presentations and a Gala Dinner during which the Professional Lighting Design Recognition Awards will be given for outstanding achievements in Architectural Lighting Design.
PLDC offers further and continuing education in the field of lighting design and the presentation of cutting-edge technologies. The convention offers a communication platform for established lighting designers, researchers, students, manufacturers, city planners, architects and related professions to network, exchange and share knowledge and new approaches in the field of light and lighting.

PLDC expands to Asia and America and changes to an annual event

After staging six editions in ten years, VIA have analysed the impact of the event and are ready to develop this event to the next level. As part of the development, it is necessary to offer a professional CPD programme and organise an international community representing the profession and guiding the CPD programme with regard to content. It has also been decided to take PLDC to the next level and stage the convention on a yearly basis, adding the Asian and American markets. VIA has given thought to the next three locations / cities for PLDC. This means that
–> PLDC 2018 will take place in Singapore in October 2018
–> PLDC 2019 will take place in Europe – Rotterdam
–> PLDC 2020 is planned to take place in New York City/US
–> PLDC 2021 will take place in Europe again

With this structure and concept they believe that the lighting design profession in architecture will gain even more momentum and PLDC can deliver more value to the global market.
