The Conference Dinner is one of Showlight's signature events and a great opportunity for delegates and exhibitors to mix socially and carry on the conversations started earlier in the day. Traditionally each table has a host whose 'guests' move from one table to another during the course of the evening, ensuring everyone meets someone new and providing a memorable experience into the bargain!
In 2005 the dinner was held at the Ayinger Brewery, just south of Munich in the heart of Bavaria. The 1200-year old village of Aying, famous for its traditional way of life and its snow-covered Alps, provided the perfect setting for a traditional Bavarian evening.
The 2009 dinner took place in Glasgow's old Fruit Market which, hidden from view in the city's cultural Merchant City next to the City Halls, has retained all of its period charm and forms part of Glasgow's Centre for Music. Plans are advancing for a truly memorable Conference Dinner in Cesky Krumlov in 2013!
"As the MD of a small business, nearly five days out of my working week represents a big decision. The (2009) event was everything it promised and more. A chance to consider the experiences of those at the top of their field, some thought provoking presentations and a fantastic humorous balance."
David Amphlett, Gekko Technology
"Showlight is always the most refreshing and revitalising industry event. We met new friends, reaffirmed relationships and learned new approaches to old problems. MA Lighting will remain a firm fan and supporter of this unique event."
Philip Norfolk, MA Lighting (2009 Exhibitor)
"I've never been to such a diverse and interesting symposium about lighting. It was a true pleasure to listen to the experiences and ideas about light. I really enjoyed and was stimulated by the entire experience. I hope that I can join in again the next time."
Roberto Schaefer ASC (Speaker 2009)
"I first attended Showlight as a speaker in 2005 and was so impressed that I came back as a delegate, and I have not been disappointed. It's wonderful to be part of this unique event."
Ken Billington, Lighting Designer
