Background:
Every year the Swedish Energy Agency arrange a series of seminars under the name ”lighting week”. At their last event in December 2018, one of the program points was ”Lighting quality at stages & theaters”.
At the end of the seminar a group of participants had a discussion about lighting quality in new sources and decided to make an open event, inviting both users and manufacturers for a full scale test.

Riksteatern did a similar test for their own personnel a while ago, comparing new and old conventional light sources with enlightening results. It was decided that this would be redone with added input from several speakers.

Now we invite everyone for a full day with halogen and LED.

The main goal with this workshop is to open communications between users and manufacturers in the hopes that we can learn together for the future.
We will talk about the upcoming Ecodesign directive. We will test sources against sources. We will discuss with manufactures about the user’s needs.

Main language of the event: English
Deadline for booking: 2019-03-08 (8th of March).

We will be offer free coffee and an enjoyable wrap for lunch.
Please notify us when you make you booking if you would like a vegetarian alternative or if you have any food allergy.
