LiGHT 23: A One-Stop-Shop of Inspiration for All Designers 19th October 2023 | IN DESIGN EVENTS | BY SBID

LiGHT – the only trade show in the UK dedicated to lighting specification – will build on the success of its first year in 2022 by enhancing its offering to attract the wider design community.

A common misconception is that trade shows dedicated to lighting specification are just for lighting designers. This, put simply, just isn’t the case…

Lighting is one of the first things that should be considered when working on a project – whether you’re a client, developer, architect, interior designer, or lighting designer. The importance of working with the right tools and having the right knowledge to produce the best light – and in turn the best environment for the end user – is undeniable. So many times, lighting is an afterthought on a project, when it should be at the forefront of everybody’s minds.

So, if you’re NOT a lighting designer why should you attend LiGHT 23?

Well, ask yourself these questions…

1. Do you work on commercial and / or high-end residential projects?
2. Do the projects you work on feature lighting in some capacity?
3. Would you like to understand more about the effects of good and bad lighting on design schemes and the end user?
4. Would you like to broaden your knowledge on the built environment?
5. Would you like to make new connections within the industry?

If you answered YES to even just one of these questions, then LiGHT 23 is the event for you and with FREE visitor registration, what’s to lose?
