Cameron Peters Fine Lighting is in London this week, presenting our first fine lighting show, lightjunction, collocated with designjunction. We are there to help professional visitors get the maximum out of their visit.
lightjunction's aim is to be the most efficient, time-saving way to introduce specifiers to fine lights, to the people who design and make them and, above all, to raise brand-awareness.
We started by assembling a carefully curated, varied collection of lighting makers -- the best ever seen in one place in London. If you don't believe me, for the very first time, thanks to Architonic, you can see not only who is exhibiting at a show but also what they are exhibiting! This information is available now (to help you plan your visit), during the show, and for several months after it. So it is always there to remind you what you saw.
There is a designjunction app available from iTunes and the Android Play Store, plus there is the "Virtual Showroom" on the lightjunction web site.
To assist you further, Fine Lighting News has a series of brief illustrated posts that look at specific exhibitors and at trends. There is an index to them here.
We have arranged three short training sessions on key topics -- the lightjunction Professional Series in the seminar theatre. Half an hour each, back-to-back, you can attend all three in ninety minutes (10:30 to 12:00) and, so you don't have to miss them, they are being given every day (except Sunday). They are:
-- Vibia on a new kind of light being made by several companies -- modules that you can build up into large, site-specific installations. Such freedom can be daunting though, so they'll be demonstrating CREA -- free software that makes it easy!
-- Architonic is arguably the most important free tool available to specifiers. Many people use it -- either on Architonic's own web site or (without realizing it) on resellers' web sites, such as our LIGHT FINDER. But it can save much more time than many users realize, so they'll demonstrate how. If you use the designjunction app or Virtual Showroom, you are using Architonic, because it is they who have kindly made this new service available to our show. Architonic are the Headline Sponsor of designjunction and lightjunction
-- Megaman are going to brief us on the current state of LEDs in decorative lighting. LEDs are changing so fast that they are probably going to have to give this presentation every year! I asked Megaman because, of all the major lamp makers, it is they who have formally committed themselves to creating decorative-lighting-friendly lamps. I was therefore particularly delighted when they agreed to sponsor lightjunction.
The lightjunction Debate takes place in the seminar theatre at 12:30 on Saturday. It looks at a subject close to our heart -- emotion and lighting -- made more complicated/interesting by new lighting technologies and legislation:
It is great that David Trubridge was able to come over here from New Zealand to take part. One of the genuine stars of the world of fine lighting, he is an artist who also makes lights -- a practical dreamer! (Don't miss his stand.)
You won't even have to waste time getting to lightjunction! We are really centrally located, by Tottenham Court Road tube station. And we're FREE!!! So do come and join us.
