The quintessence of Showlight is its speakers, and its team is now calling for lighting directors, lighting designers, 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.

The Showlight team aspires to get variety, across topics relevant to all aspects of the lighting industry today. They want to hear about your experiences, your ambitions, your inspirations, your concerns, your successes and your failures. They 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 them 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 more details, and with technical requirements and accommodation information. They look forward to receiving your ideas.

Speakers will be announced as confirmed from 2020 onwards. Join their NEW mailing list and social media, and log into our their website to be the first to hear!
