The National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) on Thursday announced that
2004 PhotoshopWorld Conference & Expo
will happen from March 1 – 3, 2004 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif.
Sponsored by Adobe Systems Inc., PhotoshopWorld is billed as the largest Adobe Photoshop event in the world. Attendees comprising digital photographers, videographers and graphic designers gather for three days of training from leading Photoshop authors and experts.
This year’s theme is “Photoshop CS: Built for Speed.” Instructors will focus their training on improving productivity and creativity in digital imaging using Photoshop CS, the latest version included with Adobe’s Creative Suite package. A total of 75 educational sessions are planned, with teachers including Scott Kelby, Jack Davis, Deke McClelland, Ben Willmore, Russell Brown, Julieanne Kost, Dan Margulis, Vincent Versace, Eddie Tapp, Michael Ninness and others.
50 exhibiting companies will also be on-hand including Adobe, Nikon, Epson, Canon, Microsoft, B&H, Wacom, HP, Dell, and Pantone, demonstrating new software, cameras, printers, workstations, training material and accessories.
Previous PhotoshopWorld events have occurred in Los Angeles, Calif., and with this the first time that PhotoshopWorld is set to happen in San Francisco, the show’s organizers are hoping for a record turnout.
Admission to PhotoshopWorld costs US$499 if you register by January 30, 2004. After that, it’s $599. NAPP members save $100. Educational discounts are available.
