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

The continuing growth of PLDC over the last ten years prompted the decision to develop a strategy for the next decade. The main goal, to establish the professional lighting design profession in its own right and on a global scale, will remain at the heart of upcoming conventions and the overall concept of staging an information and communication event will be maintained.

VIA Events does not intend to develop PLDC in size, but rather intensify its efforts by adding the Asian and American markets. PLDC will take place on a yearly basis, the next convention is scheduled for 25th – 27th October, 2018 in Singapore under the motto “a smart move”.

PLDC 2019 and PLDC 2021 will take place in Europe, and PLDC 2020 is planned to take place in New York City, USA.

As part of the development, an international community representing the profession and supporting the essential CPD programme, the Alliance, will serve as an open platform to provide guidance on lifelong learning and a link to learning opportunities.
