Virtual Showlight 2021 Call for Speakers!

Virtual Showlight will take place on May 25.

Showlight has always centered on its fascinating program of papers, delivered by lighting practitioners from around the world. Determined to uphold the spirit of Showlight despite the global restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Showlight will treat its delegates to a day of talks and networking opportunities that give a flavor of the full event.

Call for Papers – we want to hear from you!
Showlight is therefore issuing a fresh call for papers to anyone involved in lighting - be they lighting designers, lighting directors, directors of photography, architectural lighting designers or associated crafts like programmers and manufacturers - to submit papers ideas suitable for presentation in the virtual conference on 25 May 2021. Papers are to be 20 - 30 minutes in length, followed by a Q&A session. Full technical support will be given in advance, so don’t be daunted by the virtual platform!

We aim for variety, across topics relevant to all aspects of the lighting industry today, and we envisage this will be especially appealing to speakers whose commitments usually prevent them from speaking at a full Showlight event. We want to hear about your experiences, your ambitions, your inspirations, your concerns, your successes and your failures. We are not looking for simple product promotion.

Typical subjects might include:

  • Innovative and interesting designs
  • Unusual projects large or small
  • Solving the impossible
  • Your unique corner of the lighting world
  • The future and the past - where should we be going and what should we have learnt
  • Issues that are affecting our industry and how we work

If you would like to become part of Virtual Showlight 2021 by presenting a paper, please send us the following at [email protected]:

  • Name(s)
  • Company
  • Mobile number
  • Email address
  • A brief summary of the paper you are proposing
  • Is your proposal for Virtual Showlight or Full Showlight?

Showlight is always on the look out for new speakers, so if you prefer to submit your ideas for the full Showlight event as soon as it returns, we are also happy to hear these – just specify on your submission if you are applying for Virtual Showlight or Full Showlight.

Please note: all papers will be considered by the Showlight Papers Committee, and if selected you will be contacted for further details, and with technical requirements and accommodation information.

We look forward to receiving your exciting ideas.
