Live Design's Top Stories Of 2022

2022 was a big year for Live Design and LDI!

We won three Folio:Eddie Awards! The honors were given to Ellen Lampert-Gréaux's long-running blog The Forecast; a look at the some of the future of hybrid tech, Designing For The Metaverse: An Introduction To Encore; and a behind-the-scenes-tour of the Eurovision Song Contest

We also hosted a spectacular LDI2022 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in November, marking a huge comeback for the industry after the pandemic years and paving the way for an even better LDI2023, which will take place November 30 - December 5, 2023. Save those dates!

Thank you to all our loyal readers and attendees, we are so happy to have you along for the ride!

This year's top stories reflect a diverse interest in all things live entertainment, from flying whales to the Super Bowl with a sprinkling of excitement for new tours coming to the US in 2023. And, as always, you want plots, plots, and more plots! Check out our annual feature, 31 Days Of Plots, for a holiday bonanza of last year's lighting plots, from concerts to theatre and dance.
