LIGHT TALKS

“Every seat was full, people were standing outside the door- great turnout" Sally Storey, Lighting Design International 

The Light Talks alumni of lecturers reads like a Who’s Who from the lighting design industry. Curated by lighting consultancy Light Collective and sponsored by LED Linear, Light Talks hosts some 16 presentations over the 2½ days of the Show.

Sometimes controversial, always educational and 100% 'sold out', Light Talks is the focal point for architects and designers to listen and learn.
