IALD Enlighten Call for Presentations

Created exclusively by and for lighting design professionals, the Enlighten Conferences are a series of boutique educational and networking events in the Americas, Asia and Europe. They’re the place where the lighting community comes together to learn, share ideas and explore solutions with likeminded people who are passionate about light. Intimate by design, registration is capped to fewer than 500 attendees, allowing for meaningful close connections and thought-provoking discussions with the profession’s foremost experts who inspire and motivate, moving architectural lighting design into the future. 

The Call for Presentations for Enlighten Americas 2022 in Palm Springs, CA USA is now open, and we are seeking energetic and engaging speakers to lead impactful learning experiences. We know that lighting designers learn best from each other, and that idea is what the Enlighten conferences are built on. If you have a story to share, we want to hear it. The call has been extended through Tuesday, 18 January 2022!
