The Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP) is supporting this year’s Highways SIB (Seeing is Believing).
The ILP is the UK and Ireland’s largest and most influential professional lighting association, dedicated solely to excellence in lighting. Founded in 1924 as the Association of Public Lighting Engineers, the ILP has evolved to include lighting designers, consultants and engineers amongst its 2,000 strong membership.
The key purpose of the ILP is to promote excellence in all forms of lighting. This includes interior, exterior, sports, road, flood, emergency, tunnel, security and festive lighting as well as design and consultancy services.
Highways Magazine editor Alec Peachey said: “One of the reasons we hold the event in November is because of the early dark nights which allow lighting companies to show off the luminosity of products in their real working environment. The ILP will be speaking as part of our conference programme and we look forward to welcoming their members as exhibitors in our lighting zone.”
Scott Pengelly, the ILP’s vice president of events, added: “The Institution of Lighting Professionals is delighted to be on board as a brand new supporter of Highways SIB. We’re looking forward to participating and highlighting prevalent topics in the sector such as part-night lighting and the rise of LED technology. The event offers an opportunity to see lighting products showcased in the environment that they’re designed for and we’ll be encouraging our members, many of whom work in the highways industry, to attend the event.
Highways SIB is Europe’s only event for indoor showcasing of highway products as well as outdoor demonstrations in all lighting conditions and will take place at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire from 9-10 November.
