Showlight is set to return in May 2025. The host city for the 12th Showlight will be the city of Dijon in France. The event will take place from Monday 19  to Thursday 22 May 2025 and once again supported by headline sponsor Robert Juliat.

Ranked as a must-visit destination, Dijon is located at the centre of France’s Burgundy region – the vineyards of which were recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with city centre – it promises to be the perfect setting for next year’s Showlight.

The Showlight organisation is in the midst of creating brand-new programme of Papers drawing on the wealth of knowledge from lighting practitioners across theatre, television, concert touring, themed attractions, events and architecture on a diverse range of topics, in a relaxed and convivial environment. There will also be plenty of time to network and socialise in between presentations, enjoy face-to-face discussions with lighting designers and manufacturers alike, and browse the supporting exhibition that runs alongside the Papers presentations. Students are actively encouraged to attend for an unprecedented opportunity to learn from those already working in the industry.

Details of the programme, Speakers and Papers, will be revealed in the coming months. For those in the community that are invested I presenting Papers at the event should Contact the Papers Committee at with an outline of your idea.
