Chicago, Illinois, USA – The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) is rescheduling the Enlighten Americas 2021 conference to 2 to 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,” said 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,” stated 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,” added Marsha.
