Directory of ILDA Accredited
Professional Lasershow Companies

ILDA Accredited Professional Lasershow Company logoThe "ILDA Professional" (IAPLC) program is for companies, organizations and individuals that have proven, documented and substantial experience with laser shows and safety.

ILDA Pro companies are usually ILDA Members; however, membership is not a requirement -- any qualified company can submit  documentation showing that they meet "ILDA Professional" requirements, which are listed below.

The companies on this page have passed the IAPLC accreditation process and are therefore ILDA Professional companies. They are eligible to display the ILDA Pro logo during the 4-year term of their accreditation. Companies are listed alphabetically.

NOTE: ILDA Professional accreditation ultimately means that a company has submitted documentation indicating that they meet the IAPLC program's criteria, and has paid fees covering program and marketing costs, plus ILDA operations. Accreditation does not cover business practices or non-laser display work, and is not necessarily a guarantee of quality or satisfaction.

ILDA does not run or monitor the operations of those achieving accreditation.
Persons hiring any laser display producer should check business references,
review past shows and take other prudent steps to ensure a good fit
between the client's needs and the laser company's experience.

How does a company become an accredited ILDA Professional?

Any company, organization or individual producing laser shows may apply for ILDA Professional accreditation. A company does NOT have to be an ILDA Member to be in the IAPLC program. The applicant must prove a minimum level of documented experience in the following areas.

  • Professional Performance: Shows and awards
  • Professional Experience: Years in business, letters of reference, association memberships
  • Volunteer Service: To ILDA, entertainment industry, laser industry, and community
  • Education and Professional Development: Educational history, participation and attendance in industry conferences
  • Safety: Laser Safety Officer and other safety courses, safety permits and variances held, service in laser safety groups, teaching about safety
  • Statement of Affirmation: Understanding and agreeing to safe laser practices

In addition, ILDA Professional applicants must pay an application processing fee and a 4-year program fee. The fees cover IAPLC program and marketing costs, and help support ILDA general operations.

ILDA Professional status is good for four years. It can then be renewed by submitting additional documentation showing activities in the past four years.

More information on the IAPLC program is here.
