The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) is rescheduling the Enlighten Americas 2021 conference to 2-4 November 2023, in the same scenic mountain destination of Banff, AB Canada. IALD’s decision comes as a result of the continued uncertainty in Canada around the pandemic, including Canadian travel restrictions and the country’s rules about in-person events.

“The Enlighten conferences have always focused on bringing our lighting communities together in one place. Although we’re disappointed not to be able to bring everyone together as soon as we hoped, rescheduling our conference in Canada is the best action to take as responsible leaders,” says IALD President Douglas Leonard, IALD. “IALD will continue to host Enlighten conferences in 2022 and 2023 and use this opportunity to explore a reimagined Enlighten moving forward.”

“Rescheduling Enlighten Americas was a clear decision because of the uncertainty around travel and in-person events in Canada due to the pandemic,” states IALD CEO Marsha L. Turner, CAE. “As a global organization that is built around community and connection—both locally and globally—we will continue to connect, learn and celebrate through our online activities and events.”

The IALD Enlighten Conferences are a series of boutique education and networking events for lighting designers and the lighting community that take place in the Americas, Asia and Europe. This year, IALD Japan will host Enlighten Asia 2021 in Tokyo, Japan from 10 to 11 November 2021 both online and in-person. Enlighten Americas 2022 will be held in picturesque Palm Springs, CA USA from 29 September to 1 October 2022. The following year Enlighten Americas 2023 will take place 2 to 4 November 2023 in the scenic mountain destination of Banff, AB Canada. The IALD is currently exploring options for future Enlighten Europe events and will share more information as it becomes available. Visit our IALD Enlighten Conferences page for more information.
