The tenth Showlight quadrennial, the full speaker programme of which was announced last month, takes place in just three months (20-23 May) in Florence, Italy, and all exhibitor spaces have sold out. The latest exhibitors to be welcomed on board are AED, Elation Professional BV, PRG, SGM and Music & Lights. The full list of confirmed exhibitors can be found on the Showlight website at http://www.showlight.org/it/exhibitor-list/
Each exhibitor sponsors a lighting student for the duration of the show to give them a valuable opportunity to network with industry professionals in return for help (and experience) on the stand.
Showlight’s conference programme traditionally includes a panel discussion, and this year is no exception as renowned TV lighting designer, Bernie Davies, chairs a panel that focuses on the subject of Programming. Programmers Stuart Porter, Brad Schiller and Ross Williams will explore the changing role they fill and how they fit within the lighting structure. They will look at how this vital role varies in different genres of lighting, how they got to where they are, and where they think things will go in the future.
