Europe - Showlight has confirmed that it is back and will return ‘soon’. Following the enforced postponement of Showlight 2023 and a bumpy ride during the pandemic, the committee has reassembled and is working towards the next in the series of this industry networking event.
The Showlight committee is currently exploring new locations and actively seeking sponsorship for the next Showlight, the date and location of which will be confirmed in the New Year.
Many experienced committee members are joined by a flush of new members in organising what promises to be one of the most exciting issues of this quadrennial to date.
Incoming Showlight chairman, Jim Tetlow, who has moved from his previous position as papers chairman, says: “We are truly excited that Showlight is back with such energy and cannot wait to bring our delegates a fantastic programme of papers and networking opportunities. This has been a much-loved event since 1981 and there will be many in the industry who are very happy to hear that we will return.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank the recently retired members of the committee for their years of hard work and dedicated service.” Retiring committee members are John Allen (chairman), Mark White (finance director), Petra Sefton (catering & food), Rob Dyer (student coordinator), Ed Jackson (exhibition coordinator) and Rudiger Benz (technical support/stage Manager).
“The spirit of Showlight has been kept truly alive by their work and we are excited to carry it forward to the next event. We have been joined by several new committee members, namely Simon Barrett, Alan Luxford and Peter Marshall, and are still looking for new members to fill the roles left vacant by our outgoing committee members.”
