Showlight 2023 – Showlight to exhibit at ABTT – stand E32

Showlight is only a year away and we are getting excited already!

As part of the build up, Showlight will be exhibiting at ABTT (#ABTTTheatreShow) next month at Alexandra Palace (22-23 June 2022). Our first trade show since 2019 and a chance to meet with our future delegates, exhibitors, sponsors and speakers face-to-face.

Come and find us on stand E32, which is situated conveniently close to Education Alley, the Associations Area…and the refreshment area! You can find out more about Showlight quadrennial and why it is such a popular and unique networking event.

Showlight is the only international event organised for lighting professionals, by lighting professionals and gives you 4 fantastic days (20-23 May 2023) focused around a fascinating presentations delivered by lighting designers from all disciplines, and plenty of opportunity to network at a range of social events, workshops and dinners, not forgetting the glamorous Grand Conference Dinner of course! The Papers Committee has started work on the programme of speakers and is already spoilt for choice, but will continue to invite participants until closer to the date to ensure the most current projects are considered.

Showlight has always been well-supported by its exhibitors and 2023 will see around 25 exhibitors join the fun. Showlight offers unprecedented access to designers, students, venues and technicians in an informal atmosphere where knowledge sharing is paramount. Not sure if you want to be an exhibitor? Check out our website for some good reasons why, (www.showlight/why-exhibit?) or better still, visit us at ABTT next month to discuss some options. We currently have places left, but they will go quickly as costs continue to represent excellent value for money. Don’t miss out on this once-in-four-year opportunity!

ABTT is a Silver Sponsor of Showlight and we are continuing to invite more sponsors to come on board. As well as the standard sponsorship opportunities, we are also looking for mini-sponsors – companies or individuals or those with smaller budgets who can opt to sponsor the small but vital things that help make Showlight so enjoyable. Past mini-sponsors have supported Showlight by sponsoring welcome drinks on the first night, a student or speaker, or even tea, coffee or lunch refreshments.
