New identity for leading UK lighting institution

12 October 2010 12.00 BST

(UK) - The Institution of Lighting Engineers has launched its new identity as the Institute of Lighting Professionals.

The rebranding was revealed to hundreds of delegates by Alistair Scott, ILP President their annual conference in Chesford Grange, UK, in September. The new name supersedes the Institution of Lighting Engineers, which was established over 20 years ago.
The main reason for the re-branding, according to Alistair Scott is to “modernise the Institution and its image and to provide an organisation that is more relevant to its membership, potential members, the wider public and the future requirements of the profession ...The ILP aims to enhance support for the whole profession as with time, we will have greater political influence and resources at our disposal.”
The three-day Annual Conference featured a range of activities and a diverse selection of presentations, including John O’Hagan’s ‘Can Light Quality Affect our Health?’; ‘A Sustainable Lighting Strategy for the UK’ by Mark Sutton Vane; Martin Lupton’s ‘Guerrilla Lighting’; and Giulio Antonutto’s paper, ‘Computational Design Optimisation and Lighting’. On the first night, the YLP festival, arranged by the ILP’s dynamic young people’s group, comprised a live band and BBQ, which allowed delegates and exhibitors to network informally. The more formal President’s dinner the following night was used to recognise and celebrate the hard work and achievements of those within the lighting community. The ILE Awards presented at the President’s dinner were:
·      Student of the Year – Herbie Barnieh
·      Best National Conference paper – Nigel Townsend & Dr John Bullas
·      Best Lighting Journal Article – Wout Van Bommel
·      ILP Special Recognition Award 2010 – London Borough of Southwark.
Next year’s ILP Annual Conference and Exhibition will take place in  Harrogate from September 28-30.
