    This is to register for the half-day ILDA Laser Operator Safety class. This is for persons who work with or operate lasers for lightshows and displays. It teaches basic lightshow safety concepts and procedures.


    This class is a prerequisite for the more advanced ILDA Laser Safety Officer for U.S. Lightshows class.

     

    (Note: The Laser Operator Safety class is NOT included in the ILDA Conference registration. It is a separate event, requiring separate registration and fees. If there is insufficient interest -- not enough registrants -- the class will be cancelled and registration fee will be refunded.)

    This is to register for the half-day ILDA Audience Scanning Safety class. This covers how to do safe, legal and effective audience scanning at laser lightshows.


    This class is for both operators (responsible for safe exposure) and show designers (responsible for implementation and measurements). Prior laser show safety experience or courses are recommended. If you do not have such prior experience/courses, or if you have questions, please contact the instructor, Greg Makhov, at greg@lsdi.com. Greg is ILDA's Safety Committee chair and an instructor for other laser safety classes.

    (Note: The Audience Scanning Safety class is NOT included in the ILDA Conference registration. The class is a separate event, requiring separate registration and fees. If there is insufficient interest -- not enough registrants -- the class will be cancelled and registration fee will be refunded.)

    This is to register for the full-day ILDA Laser Safety Officer for U.S. Lightshows class. This covers laser shows only -- no medical, industrial or other non-lightshow laser usage. While European and international regulations are discussed, the majority of the regulatory discussion is on U.S. laser and aviation issues.


    To take this class, you must have prior laser show experience, or have taken ILDA's Laser Operator Safety course.  If you have questions whether you are ready for this class, contact the instructor.

    The instructor is Greg Makhov, ILDA's Safety Committee chair and an instructor for other LSO classes. More information on the class is at the ILDA Laser Safety Officer course webpage.

    (Note: The LSO class is NOT included in the ILDA Conference registration. The LSO class is a separate event, requiring separate registration and fees. If there is insufficient interest -- not enough registrants -- the class will be cancelled and registration fee will be refunded.))

    This registration is for the ILDA Conference, including the Lase-Off and Awards dinners. (Note: The Conference does NOT include any Laser Safety Education classes or the Nov. 13 Cultural Tour.)

    Spouse/Guest info: When you register, you can also register a spouse or one or more guests who are staying with you in the same room. The cost is $325 per ILDA Member's spouse/guest, or $425 for a non-member's spouse/guest. The spouse/guest can attend all meals, the Welcome Reception, the Lase-Off, and the Awards Banquet; but they can NOT attend the business, seminar or workshop meetings. (A spouse/guest can also go on the Nov. 13 Cultural Tour by signing up separately.) A Spouse/Guest is defined as a person related to a Full Conference registrant. The relationship must be that the spouse/guest is married, is a significant other, is a family member, or is a personal friend who is not employed in a lasershow-related business.

    Save money by registering as early as possible. Prices go up to $765 during Regular Registration, July 1 - September 30, and $965 during Late Registration, October 1 to November 11. 

    Also save money by booking ILDA-rate rooms with the Hôtel Bonaventure.
    Simply book directly with the hotel using the hotel reservation link for ILDA attendees available on this page. This will assure that ILDA is properly credited for your stay. If you do not use this method, your ILDA Conference registration cost will be $250 higher to cover ILDA's hotel contract penalties.
