Hey photographers, mark your calendars. Photo District News (PDN) announced today that this year’s
will take place later this year, returning once again to the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City. The event is scheduled for October 31 – Nov. 2, 2002. This year’s event focuses more than ever on digital photography, too.
PhotoPlus Expo is geared for pro and advanced amateur photographers, along with production and pre-press pros, creative directors, art buyers, graphic designers, stock photo pros and others. The event features almost 100 photography and design-related seminars and hands-on workshops. Experts in digital imaging products and techniques will be on hand to talk about the latest innovations in the field, while photo masters will speak on lighting, printing, marketing, stock photography, photojournalism, wedding photography, fashion, Adobe Photoshop and more.
The Digital Learning Center (DLC) will help photographers keep track of the latest advances in digital technology. Sponsors of the area will be on hand to demonstrate scanners, digital cameras, printers and imaging software. Lectures and presentations at the DLC are also scheduled for all three days of the show.
The PhotoPlus Digital Lab Forum will give photographers a chance to learn more about the latest start-of-the-art in digital and film photography and production. Free seminars will be hosted daily. Featured content at the forum includes information about the consumer photo retailing/onsite processing market, and keynote presentations will be given by leading vendors.
More than 200 exhibitors are also expected to show, with many using the venue to introduce new imaging hardware, software and photographic products. PDN Vice President/Publisher Jeffrey Roberts noted that this year’s PhotoPlus Expo takes place only a few weeks after Germany’s bi-annual Photokina show — the timing means that many of the products on display will be having their U.S. debut at the event.
More details and online registration are available from the Web site. Free or discounted registration is available before October 4, 2002.
