Two full days of topical presentations from experts across all fields of lighting, combined with a comprehensive programme of interactive CPD workshops, sessions and exhibition.

The Professional Lighting Summit is the annual must-attend event for any lighting professional and includes the ILP’s AGM.

The conference is for lighting designers, engineers, consultants, contractors and any other professionals interested in lighting. It provides a focus for all those involved in lighting to get together to share expertise, discuss new ideas, understand technical and legal changes to our community… and ultimately to provide each other with information on how to carry out our roles more effectively. Conference sessions, workshops, exhibition and professional networking all combine to make two days of outstanding CPD.

The Professional Lighting Summit also includes workshops and an exhibition.

ALL ARE WELCOME: members and non-members alike

It’s great, particularly for new comers

By far the best CPD available and mixed with the exhibition and workshops makes for a really interesting event and a fantastic opportunity to mix with the best in the business.

The Summit is an ideal place to network with fellow professionals and indulge in copious amounts of CPD.

Thanks for putting on a great show at Newcastle, it was well attended and great to see the introduction of new things and new tech such as the VR experience! It was beneficial and very enjoyable.

A lot of opportunities to learn and get involved

Excellent CPD, good exhibition and great for networking, what more could you ask for.

Value for money

We found that we built great connections with delegates that visited our stand when we exhibited our solar light product – solareye80.  For us, exhibiting with the Institution of Lighting Professionals has been a great return on our investment and we look forward to exhibiting at future events.
