Visitors to SPARC 2015, Australia’s premier lighting event, will be treated to a stellar line up of international and national expert speakers.

To be held from May 27-29 at Sydney Exhibition Centre, Glebe Island, SPARC 2015 will feature an exhibition, seminars and gala dinner.

This Wednesday (May 27) at 7pm SPARC is presenting the Asia-Pacific Lighting Systems Workshop.

This two hour event covering seven discussions, will bring the minds of many leading scientists in the Asia-Pacific region to present on Iighting measurements, standards and regulations, lighting controls and innovative applications to reduce energy consumption.

Speakers such as Ian Cowling, Adrian Cupitt, Amir Moayedzadeh and Rod Hewins will discuss the question: “Can you believe your light-meter?”

And Dorukalp Durmus and Wendy Davis will examine: Colour Difference and Energy Consumption of Absorption-minimising Spectral Power Distributions.

On Thursday (May 28) at 7pm, SPARC International Lighting Event will host its first Pecha Kucha evening, a fast-flowing night of hand-picked lighting experts and architects presenting 20 slides in quick succession.

Each presenter will share their insights and designs on 20 slides over six minutes with each slide advancing after 20 seconds. Entry to this event is included in “Display Ticket.”

On Friday (May 29) at 2pm, wrapping up the three-day event, a unique opportunity exists to listen and be involved at the Speaker Panel Session.

The session will be hosted by inventor and entrepreneur, Mark Pesce who co-invented VRML – a 3D interface to the web, has written six books, was a judge on ABC’s The New Inventors for seven years and regularly comments on the intersection of technology and society for JJJ Hack, The Project and ABC Radio.

Mr Pesce will open the floor before turning the table to the featured SPARC speakers for an audience Q&A-style session.

SPARC speakers have been invited back on stage for this highly sought after Q&A session and will answer audience questions on all-topics lighting.

It is the ideal opportunity for anyone who has questions for a speaker, or who missed any of the speakers throughout the event to hear from those specific speakers before SPARC concludes.

SPARC offers architects, designers and lighting specialists an opportunity to hear and learn the latest research, insights and product knowledge that the international lighting community has to offer.
