MK Illumination is proud to be one of the sponsors of the 2020 CEMR (Congress of European Municipalities and Regions) congress in Innsbruck from 6 – 8 May 2020.

This year’s theme, “Local Action. Global Shift. Living the Sustainable Development Goals”, allows us to get together with some of the brightest minds in Europe to discuss how to make sustainable a reality, and with our 26 years’ of working with cities and municipalities, we have a vested interested in not only being part of the conversation, but being part of the solution.

Join our CEO Klaus Mark in a number of engaging sessions, including:

Thursday, May 7th, 9.30 a.m.: Ready, steady, build your dream city! (in two parts)

The year is 2030. What would your ideal city look like? How would you design a place where all the SDGs have been reached? Join our interactive “gamestorming” session with participants from a wide variety of backgrounds. The first part of this session will focus on the co-creation of your dream city. The second part will dig into the different scenarios and determine which city meets the most criteria for success.

  • Federico Batista Poitier, Director of External Relations & Partnerships, Pineda Foundation / World Enabled

Thursday, May 7th, 2 p.m.: Sustainable lighting concepts: A global issue

Family-owned business MK Illumination currently has 40 branches across 41 countries. Its impressive lighting concepts help stimulate regional economies by livening up gastronomy and trade and boosting the number of overnight stays. Planning and staging a lighting display, however, calls for careful consideration of the budget, local residents and the environment. In his presentation, owner and founder Klaus Mark will give you specific recommendations on how to stage festive lighting in harmony with sustainability.
