Enlighten Asia in Japan 2019

“Enlighten Asia in Japan 2019” is an international seminarconference hosted by the IALD Japan, the Japan Lighting Manufacturers Association (JLMA ), and Nikkei Inc., and is to be held at Tokyo Big Sight within the venue of Lighting Fair 2019 (March 5 to 8). This seminarconference by lighting designers—first held in 2013, with the next one scheduled for spring 2019 being the fourth—has widely gained a good reputation from many people involved in architectural lighting. The IALD Japan is currently working on adjusting the programs of our international seminarconference . We are also planning various events for “co-re-ca-light: a light for the future, ” of which the IALD Japan and the Lighting Fair Planning Committee are in charge of planning, and the preparations are progressing better than last time. We hope this event in the year leading up to the Olympic year will be successful and have fulfilling content—messages not only within Japan but to the world. We are waiting for the active participation of many people involved in lighting design, as well as IALD Japan members.
