Moderated Discussions

For the third time, in Paris PLDC offered a series of tightly focussed moderated discussions on some of the main topics related to the conference, plus additional topics of interest. Lighting designers, architects, experts from the lighting industry, and clients were invited to discuss cutting-edge approaches, research findings, and the questions – and answers – they give rise to.

The discussions were moderated by Joachim Ritter, Editor-in-Chief of the PLD magazine and initiator of PLDC, and supported by experts from the respective topic-related field.

The moderated discussions are free-of-charge and open for all to attend. They took place during the lunch breaks in the PLD Alliance lounge, located in the manufacturers’ exhibition area.
