Yearly, we sit up for October. It’s that point when PhotoPlus Expo takes over the Javits Middle in NYC and we get to hang around with people who find themselves as obsessive about pictures as we’re.

The Expo kicks off on Thursday, October 26th and runs by Saturday, October 28th. In the event you’ve by no means been, you have to test it out — particularly for the reason that commerce present is free to attend. Often known as the “greatest pictures occasion in North America,” it is a likelihood to see all the most recent gear and listen to a full day of matters associated to rising your picture enterprise. You’ll be able to register immediately right here.

We’ve been concerned with PPE in some capability for the previous few years, and at all times have a blast. One yr we had our personal sales space, one other yr we gave out popcorn to attendees, different years we’ve hosted picture enterprise seminars. No matter we do, the very best half is at all times seeing our business mates and catching up with PhotoShelter photographers.
