Over the next few weeks, MK Illumination will once again be running a number of events in Germany and Austria that will focus on cities, public spaces, and trade. German-speakers are invited to come along to these events, network, learn more about liveable and sustainable cities, and how turn retail spaces into experiential places.
Here are some of the events that you’ll want to be part of:
28 February 2019: City Marketing Best-Practice Day in Seefeld
In cooperation with City Marketing Austria, we’ll be offering a best-practice day in Seefeld with the theme of “Magic of Light: Design with Light Art in Public Spaces”.
We’ll be discussing the importance of light to humans and how the tone, intensity, color and design of light can alter mood and influence behavior.
Design and art are both important in filling spaces with atmosphere, attracting visitors, and making people feel at home. We’ll be taking a look at how combining light, design, and art are playing an increasingly important role in turning cities and public spaces into destinations and visitor attractions in their own right.
