Jo Bell, ILP Operations Assistant

The Institution of Lighting Professionals invites you to a day of discovery, technology-rich insights, design inspiration and the opportunity to gain CPD hours and make networking connections.

Discover what’s new and help your career at the same time.

From asset registers to zebra crossing beacons, the challenges of asset management are growing all the time. With the profession now facing Well Managed Highways, EV supplies and smart city technology, we are all experiencing struggles and opportunities linked to the diversification of street lighting assets.

You may feel you have left it too late to tackle this change – but don’t worry. The ILP has arranged a one off CPD day where you can get the answers you need to make sure you are fully prepared.

• Meet a wide range of lighting organisations in the exhibition area who offer lighting products and services
• Network with your peers in a face to face setting
• Enquire about ILP membership upgrading at the Professional Development Zone
• Meet local professionals from Midland and Northern ILP regions
• Develop new ideas and plans to take back to your workplace
• Find out more about Young Lighting Professionals support group
• Increase your competency


Well Managed Highway Infrastructure: An introduction to the new code of practice for managing highway assets
Andy Warrington, Technical Director, Arcadis
Andy will outline the background to the new code of practice published in October 2016 and due to be implemented by all local highway authorities by October 2018. He will also discuss some of the key changes from the previous codes of practice and share a view of how local highway authorities are prioritising and tackling the changes.


Are you ready for the new Code of Practice?
Allan Howard BEng(Hons) CEng FILP FSLL, WSP
CPD Session delivered by ILP Premier Corporate member WSP
Well-Managed Highway Infrastructure: a code of practice has been developed through consultation with practitioners, professionals and user groups. It was approved and published by the UKRLG in October 2016 and comes into force in October this year. The ILP are aligning TR22 to aid members in meeting the CoP but through regional workshops there seems to be a lack of awareness of the CoP’s existence. Allan will review and advise on the CoP which requires a step change in approach requiring an understanding of asset condition and a risk / asset management approach to the management of the asset.

Global Market Access – What should I know when I am exporting my luminaires?
Dr. Hans Laschefski, UL
CPD Session delivered by ILP Premier Corporate member UL
Different markets – different requirements – and very often an unexpected surprise. You may be familiar with all the general and local requirements in your home market. Due to a promising contact from a trade fair, a strategic decision in your company or even due to political circumstances an export idea or export need occurs. So how should you proceed? Underwriters Laboratories (UL) will provide a short introduction with a brief overview about the general regulations exist around the world.


A Local Authority Risk Manager’s Perspective
Paul Middleton, Central Bedfordshire Council
Paul will take us through how the code is being implemented and the risk management associated with a risk-based approach. He will explore what we have learnt to date, where the areas of concerns are and how we need to manage this with the political needs of a local authority. Learn how the risk-based approach is managed with the differing needs and objectives of the assets, and the way we can innovate to ensure that we reduce the risk.

Doors close
