Virtual Showlight 2021 – Registration is OPEN!

Virtual Showlight 21 is delighted to announce that registration for its unique online event is now OPEN! Tickets can be obtained from Hubilo by following this link:

Tickets are free of charge, but delegates are encouraged to make voluntary donations via our Just Giving page when registering as all proceeds will go to support industry charities, Backup and Behind the Scenes.

The event will be hosted on behalf of Showlight by MaxLive Events and takes place on 25 May 2021 between 15.00 BST and 23.00 BST.

We have an exciting programme of speakers lined up for your entertainment and education! These will be interspersed by a number of ‘Video Shorts’ – short stand-alone papers, some of which will be forerunners to the full Showlight event that we hope will resume next year.

A discussion panel of international speakers will focus on the issue of diversity in the lighting industry. And in between sessions there will be a number of breakout rooms, hosted by our sponsors, which delegates can enter to view and discuss sponsors’ products and services. We will also have a networking lounge for general mixing and mingling.

So come and join us for a day of networking and lighting indulgence in celebration of the spirit of Showlight. Sadly, the only thing we cannot offer you is the famous Showlight refreshment which, on this occasion, you will need to provide for yourself!

We would like to thank our generous sponsors whose donations have enabled Showlight to cover the cost of this virtual event, allowing the maximum of delegate donations to go direct to the charities. Robert Juliat is our headline sponsor, and is joined by Ayrton, ACT Lighting, Inc., Altman, ARRI, Claypaky, Copper Candle, ETC, Robe and Vectorworks. Virtual Showlight is also supported by media partner, LSi, and by LSA.
