PLDC strategy 2027
PLDC (Professional Lighting Design Convention) 2018 had a successful event in their new location as part of their recent expansion to Asia and North America.
Aiming to demonstrate the changes in our society in terms of lighting, PLDC’s expansion to Asia was representative of the on-going development towards smart solutions for urban issues, such as lighting and public safety, mobility and IoT.
Additionally, a further project that was presented in Singapore was the CPD platform, which will offer professional training from a wide range of providers, as well as encourage self-study on all levels. PLDCPD will deliver the structure and back-up required for high-quality continuing of education.
Given the shift on the market and within the field of technology, VIA-Verlag is prepared to take a further step and responsibility to reach this goal.
It was also announced the Professional Lighting Design magazine will cease to be available in print, but will continue to be published online by the VIA publishing company. This recent online relaunch brought with it some new features to the platform, including a new aesthetic.
The next PLDC event will take place in the Netherlands at the Ahoy Rotterdam convention centre in 2019.
PLDC 2020 is planned to take place in New York City.
