Event Details


LiGHT 23 - The UK’s only dedicated exhibition for lighting specification. LiGHT 23 is the UK’s only trade show dedicated to high-end lighting specification, bringing the design community the very best that the decorative and architectural lighting market has to offer.
Following the popularity of LiGHT 22, which saw over 3,500 visitors attend to discover over 100 high-end international lighting brands, LiGHT 23 is back for a second year. With an extended exhibition floor space and new features, the two-day show is set to be even bigger and better for 2023 and the [d]arc media team is excited to welcome the design community back in November.
Taking place on the 21 & 22 November 2023 at the Business Design Centre in Islington, LiGHT 23 will see even more exhibitors taking part than last year, with new spaces and exciting additions to the [d]arc thoughts talk programme.
[d]arc thoughts talks programme
Show highlights include the highly regarded [d]arc thoughts talks programme, which will move upstairs to the Gallery level.
Running for two-days as part of the wider LiGHT 23 exhibition, talks and presentations will focus on trends and innovation within lighting, while being moderated by arc and darc magazine editors as well as guest editors. All talks are completely free to attend.

Networking Opportunities
There will be a late-night opening on 21 November for those designers keen to experience the show once the office doors have closed. Other networking opportunities include the extremely popular LiGHT Lunch on day two of the show. 
Also new for 2023, the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) will host a networking day and LiGHT Lunch on 22 November for its members and potential new members in the Associations Lounge, which can be found next to darc space.
darc space
To fully embrace this design focus, an exciting new area for the 2023 show has been announced – darc space. The darc space focuses on decorative lighting in architecture, acting as the perfect place for interior designers and lighting designers to network, collaborate, provide inspiration and specify decorative lighting brands for their projects.
Situated in a prime position adjacent to the main conference room where the [d]arc thoughts programme will take place, darc space gives decorative lighting brands a dedicated area to shine. darc space will provide designers and specifiers looking for their next stunning light feature a one-stop-shop of decorative lighting brands to choose from.
LiGHT Work
LiGHT Work is also back – providing visiting designers a focused space to catch up on emails, carry out office tasks, or have one-to-one meetings.
