Showlight is a bringing together of lighting professionals from all areas of expertise and levels of experience, from wizened professionals to fresh-faced students! The emphasis is on sharing knowledge and enjoying the inspiration and variety our industry offers in a networking event without parallel. An eclectic programme of speakers will inform and entertain delegates in a series of 20-minute sessions, interspersed by a micro-tradeshow, and accompanied by a social programme which includes company dinners and a series of half-day visits to local places of interest, before culminating in the legendary Conference Dinner. The host venue for the four days will be the glorious Palazzo Dei Congressi, a state-of-the-art conference venue inside an historical and charming Italian-style villa in the heart of Florence.The main sponsor for Showlight 2017 was announced last year as Italian lighting manufacturers, Clay Paky.

The quality of the papers, the networking opportunities, the stunning location and the promise of an immensely enjoyable event, guarantee this will be an extremely popular conference. “Every Showlight is a new experience: a different venue and different speakers make each one unique,” says Showlight Chairman, John Allen. “The only similarity is that we work hard to make Showlight engaging, interesting and educational for everyone, seasoned professionals and students alike.” Potential exhibitors should contact Jane Cockburn or Derek Gilbert on This email address is being protected from spambots.
