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.

First Showlight 2021 Sponsors

Our headline sponsor is, of course, Robert Juliat, the 100-year old, family-run, French manufacturer of top quality lighting equipment whose country plays host to Showlight 2021.  Also from France is our Platinum sponsor, Ayrton, the industry-leading specialists in intelligent LED-based moving light fixtures. We currently have three Gold sponsors, Eyetidy, Robe and SFL Group, three Silver sponsors, ABTT, ACT Lighting and White Light, and a Bronze sponsor, PRG. Our fabulous 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.

Become a Showlight Sponsor

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.

You don’t need to be an exhibitor to become a Showlight sponsor, and there’s a wide range of sponsorship opportunities to suit everyone. Sponsors can contribute towards a particular item for example, such as speaker expenses, coffee/tea breaks, or wine with lunch, 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.
