Showlight 2021 announced – Save the Dates! Fontainebleau, France – 22-25 May 2021
Details of Showlight 2021, the unique lighting colloquium organised for lighting professionals by lighting professionals, have just been announced! The next gathering for this quadrennial event will take place on 22-25 May 2021 in the beautiful French town of Fontainebleau. The main sponsor for the event will be the 100-year old French manufacturer of follow spots and theatrical luminaires, Robert Juliat. The Showlight committee searched long and hard for a setting worthy of Showlight’s reputation for fascinating locations, and settled on the historic town of Fontainebleau which lies 55.5km south east of Paris. The highly-anticipated conference will take place in the town’s Théâtre Municipal, directly opposite the Château de Fontainebleau, where delegates can enjoy the varied programme of conference papers delivered by professionals across many lighting disciplines. A small supporting exhibition will take place in the theatre’s foyer and courtyard between papers sessions offering superb opportunities to network and exchange ideas with other lighting professionals.
And of course, the event will close with a resplendent Gala Dinner in a stunning – and yet to be disclosed – location! Being so close to Paris, Fontainebleau is easy to reach, with good connections to airports and Eurostar terminals. So put the date in your diary now, and get planning your presentation papers as Showlight will be putting out a call for speakers in the coming months. Demand is always high so book your place early. Booking details will be released closer to the event. “We are very excited to be selected as the main sponsor for Showlight 2021,” says François Juliat, CEO of Robert Juliat. “Robert Juliat is celebrating its centenary in 2019 so the fact that we can welcome Showlight and its delegates to our country at this time is very special. Showlight is such a unique event, and Fontainebleau is a perfect location – it is an unmissable opportunity for everyone in the lighting fraternity who is interested in light.”
