LIT Design Awards 2019 Winners Event has been postponed to 2021.
The 3rd LIT Design Awards winner event originally planned for March 2020 is now officially postponed till next year due to the current global health crisis caused by Covid19. With over 100 attendees registered from 20 different countries, the safety of our winners and organizing team is of primary concern.
Therefore, we have decided to postpone the 2019 LIT Winners evening reception. This decision has not been made lightly, as it’s a key yearly event amongst the leading global Lighting and Lighting Product Designers. The LIT 2019 Winners will be celebrated together with the LIT 2020 Winners at a future date and location which will be announced early 2021.
