France - The first sponsors of Showlight Quadrennial (Fontainebleau, France – 22-25 May 2021) have been announced by its organisers. Joining Headline sponsor Robert Juliat, the 100-year old, family-run, French manufacturer of lighting equipment are: Platinum sponsor, Ayrton; Gold sponsors, Eyetidy, Robe and SFL Group; Silver sponsors, ABTT, ACT Lighting and White Light, and Bronze sponsor, PRG. Media Partner for Showlight 2021 is LSI, with generous support from LSA and PLASA. “We are extremely grateful to all our sponsors, partners and supporters, but this list is just the beginning,” says Showlight. "It is a little-known fact, but Showlight is organised entirely by volunteers and would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors. We are currently looking for more sponsors to make Showlight 2021 a success, so why not get involved? There are many ways to become a Showlight sponsor and be part of one of the lighting industry’s most popular networking events."
Showlight Quadrennial is one of the few international events organised specifically for lighting professionals, by lighting professionals across the performance, television, film, architectural and event worlds. Regarded as one of the best networking events in the industry, Showlight combines three days of eclectic talks with a great social programme, a sponsored student scheme and a supporting exhibition that gives unique opportunities for manufacturers and lighting designers to network in a relaxed and non-pressured environment.
”This too will pass”
A statement from the Showlight organisers on the current coronavirus health scare reads: “With the immediate global focus on the containment of the COVID-19 virus, international events are being hit quite badly, with cancellations and postponements of trade shows and conferences taking the headlines on a daily basis. While this is a prudent precaution to limit the spread of the virus, it does lead to logistical nightmares for those who organize, exhibit and attend these vital networking events.
“However, with suggested peak levels anticipated to be around two months’ time, with a further two months for it to subside completely, the best we can do is carry on with confidence that ‘this too will pass’. Showlight 2021 is more than a year away and we are continuing to progress plans in the usual fashion. To this end, we are delighted to announce the first sponsors for Showlight 2021 which will take place in Fontainebleau, France from 22-25 May next year.”
Become a Showlight Sponsor
Showlight would not be possible without the generosity of its sponsors and supporters. “You don’t need to be an exhibitor to become a Showlight sponsor, and there are a wide range of sponsorship opportunities to suit everyone. Sponsors can contribute towards a particular item - for example, speaker expenses, tea/coffee breaks etc, and be named as the sponsor for that item. Or they can choose to donate a sum of money which will be put towards the organisation of the whole show, with suitable acknowledgement as a Showlight sponsor.”
