Showlight 2021 – Call for Speakers!

Fontainebleau, France – 22-25 May 2021

The Showlight quadrennial lighting conference will take place at Fontainebleau, France from 22-25 May, 2021. At the heart of Showlight is its fascinating programme of papers delivered by lighting practitioners from around the world.

Call for Papers – we want to hear from you!

The essence of Showlight is its speakers, and we are now calling for 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 their ideas for 2021’s conference papers in Fontainebleau. Talks are to be twenty minutes in length to enable as many papers as possible to be presented over the three-day period.

We aim for variety, across topics relevant to all aspects of the lighting industry today. 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 Showlight 2021 by presenting a paper, please send us the following at

  •  Name(s)
  • Company
  • Mobile number
  • Email address
  • A brief summary of the paper you are proposing

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.
