PlugFest – the European technical lighting event – returns to France in 2024

The PLASA-hosted technical lighting event, PlugFest, returns to Lille, France from 16-19 April 2024, bringing together lighting professionals from across Europe to test products and learn about protocols and standards.

Together with the expert hosts, Hamish Dumbreck (JESE Ltd), Wayne Howell (Singularity UK) and Peter Willis (Howard Eaton Lighting), PlugFest provides a unique opportunity for lighting manufacturers, developers, and technicians to test and debug their designs, as well as improve the connectivity of their products.

Besides interactive testing, PlugFest offers a programme of educational seminars, unpacking the most widely used protocols.

And the organisers are pleased to announce that the 2024 event timetable has been extended for more in-depth testing time, without compromising the valuable conference offerings.

Furthermore, attendees can join technical discussions on DMX512, RDM, sACN, Art-Net, RDMnet, LLRP, as well as other topics of interest such as Ethernet, DALI and Fixture Libraries – allowing product designers to ensure their products meet relevant standards and offer maximum interoperability.

PlugFest 2023 sold out well in advance, proving the ongoing value of the gathering for the technical lighting community.
