Evening events

After a day of intensive discussions and input, it is always good to gather and share thoughts with friends and colleagues in the evening.

On Wednesday, 1. November, 2017 the convention will be officially opened with a cocktail reception at 20.00. Results from the pre-convention meetings will provide an initial impulse for discussion. The opening reception will be held at the Palais des Congrès (the convention venue) in the manufacturers’ exhibition on level 2.

It has become a tradition that all attendees are invited to a party on Thursday evening – after a first full, informative and inspiring day at the conference – to celebrate light and to use this social evening event and casual atmosphere for further networking. With Platinum Sponsor Targetti, the organisers have found an excellent host for the evening. The organising team from Targetti have secured a special location for this party: the nightclub La Machine du Moulin Rouge. All PLDC conference attendees are automatically registered for this special evening event, which promises to be another PLDC cult party!

As a tradition, the Friday evening during PLDC is free for attendees to spend as they wish. You may like to attend one of the events organised by the sponsoring partners or co-ordinate your evening with friends and/or business partners.

This year PLDC has extended the supporting programme with the introduction of the PLD Week – a week of activities and events in Paris to facilitate discussion about the importance of light. Manufacturers will open their showrooms from 30. October to 4. November and stage events to inform, discuss and philosophise about light.

PLDC concludes with a Gala Dinner on Saturday, 4. November, 2017. Following the Gala Dinner and Awards Show, the evening will close with a grand Party, once again offering all lighting enthusiasts the opportunity to celebrate light on the dance floor!
