"We are very happy and privileged to have been part of Showlight 2013. It is a real forum for discussion and ideas in our industry, and we were so happy to be able to represent our country in this way." Josef Valchář, CEO, Robe (main sponsor 2013)

"Showlight was a brilliant event, with a unique combination of speakers in a unique environment. But most important, you made it feel like a family gathering! I have participated in many events over the years and organized some myself, but I have never seen such a high quality event in all details that is organized so smoothly and relaxed." Chris Van Goethem, RITS School of Arts (delegate)

"As a 'Showlight Virgin' I was not sure what to expect, and to be perfectly honest spending most of my day traveling on planes and coaches was not something I was looking forward to, especially as it was my birthday. But the trip was well worth it! The location was great, the variety of the speakers spot on and the organisation was, I am sure, challenging but went extremely smoothly. Well done to you and your team." Adrian Searle, Stage Electrics (delegate)

"Buongiorno - a short email to personally congratulate you for having organized such a memorable event. It's been really nice to see so many friends from the industry in one place talking about lighting without the rush of a trade show. It's made with passion and attention to detail, well done." Fabiano Besio, Luci Della Ribalta (speaker)

"I hope you will continue bringing students to Showlight, as I felt it was important for me as a student to be there to build a network and learn from the people in the business. I got acquainted with a lot of people who happily shared their experience. I have already set myself a goal to come to Showlight next time as a lighting designer." Dorthe Wiig Andersen, student
