The ILP is proud to support the Professional Lighting Design Convention, PLDC 2017 as a Partner Association.

This biannual 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.

Based on the proven success of the PLDC concept, the convention will again be built around a three-day professional conference offering up to 90 professional papers given by high-profile speakers from the world of lighting design, architecture, research, city planning, daylight design and other related professions. Three tracks will be offering traditional 45-minute presentations, the Lighting Application Research track will adopt a new format comprising 20-minute scientific papers.
