Clarion Events, owner of Revo, the organizer of LuxLive, the Lux Awards, and Lighting Design Awards, has announced that all its events are postponed indefinitely.

In a statement, Clarion Events said: “While we continue to assess what 2022 will look like for the Revo business, all planned activity, including the lighting news channel LUX REVIEW, will be on hold for the remainder of the year. This is obviously extremely disappointing and a tough decision to have to have made but the effect of the pandemic continues to have a profound effect on the events landscape and indeed the sectors that the lighting community serve.”

In the absence of a presentation ceremony, the winners of the 2020 Lighting Design Awards–postponed from last May–will be announced on the website on Monday 29 March 2021.

LED Lighting Development Wins 2021 Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering (QEPrize)

Isamu Akasaki, Shuji Nakamura, Nick Holonyak Jr, M. George Craford and Russell Dupuis were awarded one of the world’s most prestigious engineering accolades.

Isamu Akasaki, Shuji Nakamura, Nick Holonyak Jr, M. George Craford and Russell Dupuis were recently awarded one of the world’s most prestigious engineering accolades.

London, UK: The 2021 Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering (QEPrize) is being awarded for the creation and development of LED lighting, which forms the basis of all solid-state lighting technology. Isamu Akasaki, Shuji Nakamura, Nick Holonyak Jr, M. George Craford and Russell Dupuis are recognized not only for the global impact of LED and solid-state lighting but also for the tremendous contribution the technology has made, and will continue to make, to reducing energy consumption and addressing climate change.

First awarded in 2013 in the name of Her Majesty The Queen, the QEPrize exists to celebrate ground-breaking innovation in engineering. The 2021 winners were announced by Lord Browne of Madingley, Chairman of the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering Foundation. HRH The Princess Royal shared a message of congratulation for the winners.

“This year’s Prize winners have not only helped humanity to achieve a greater degree of mastery over the environment, they have enabled us to do so in a sustainable way,” said Lord Browne of Madingley, Chairman, Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering Foundation. “They have created a product which we now take for granted, but which will play a major role in ensuring that humanity can live in harmony with nature for many more centuries to come.”

“The impact of this innovation is not to be understated,” said Professor Sir Christopher Snowden, Chair of the QEPrize Judging Panel. “It makes lighting a lot cheaper and more accessible for emerging economies. For example, LEDs are being used on fishing boats where previously the only option would have been paraffin lamps. They are much cheaper and safer. It is not only an extreme engineering achievement but a societal impact that has a significant impact on the environment.”

The winners will be formally honored at a ceremony later this year; they will receive the £1 million prize and an iconic trophy, designed by the 2021 Create the Trophy winner Hannah Goldsmith, a 20-year-old design student from the United Kingdom.
