Showlight 2021 – Call for Speakers

France – 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.

The essence of Showlight is its speakers, and Showlight is 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 20 minutes in length to enable as many papers as possible to be presented over the three-day period.

Showlight aims for variety, across topics relevant to all aspects of the lighting industry today, so want to hear about experiences, ambitions, inspirations, concerns, successes and failures. Showlight is not looking for simple product promotion.

Typical subjects might include:

  • Innovative and interesting designs

  • Unusual projects large or small

  • Solving the impossible

  • Unique corners of the lighting world

  • The future and the past, where should it be going and what should have been learned

  • Issues that are affecting the industry and its workers

To become part of Showlight 2021 by presenting a paper, please send the following at

  • Name(s)

  • Company

  • Mobile number

  • Email address

  • A brief summary of the proposed paper

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.

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