PLDC 2017 – Press release awards and statistics

PLDC 2017 – awards, facts and figures


PLDC 2017 received an overwhelming response and recorded 2165 registered attendees. In 2019, PLDC will again serve as a driver of state-of-the-art lighting design, a platform to enable trends to be discussed and developed – taking the next step to strengthen the interdisciplinary character of the educational event.

Contrary to the tradition of announcing the location for the next PLDC at the Gala Dinner, the organisers withheld their final decision. Due to the development of a long-term strategy pursuant to market developments, the location for the next PLDC will be decided by the end of 2017.
