Showlight is proud to offer a sponsorship scheme for students currently enrolled at a University, College or School on a course of studies which includes at least some content of lighting for the performing arts, events, broadcast or film. . . .

There are 40 student places available, with sponsorship covering:

  • access to all seminar presentations
  • access to the trade show
  • full participation in the unique visits programme
  • food and drink throughout the event
  • a place at the main conference dinner

All students are asked to pay for in addition is travel and accommodation – for which grants are available upon request and at the discretion of the committee.

Each student is sponsored by one of our 40 exhibitors who represent the world’s leading entertainment lighting technology companies. Exhibitors each have a small stand in Showlight’s tradeshow and, in return for sponsorship, students are asked to assist their sponsor on stand as required. Aside from this, student delegates have an invaluable opportunity to learn from top lighting designers and practitioners by attending our series of diverse seminar presentations. There’s plenty of time for networking too, with a conference dinner and varied programme of informative, fun and engaging visits to the local area all taking place.

A number of former Showlight student delegates have gone on to become award-winning lighting practitioners, with a number even returning to Showlight to present papers.
