Just in case you have never heard of this trade show, it’s AWESOME. I’m going again (my second time) this year.
Basically, all the manufactures in the photography world that you know will be there with their products (some brand new), as well as plenty of smaller companies that you will not have heard of. Those smaller companies are super-interesting as many of them make niche products. Registration is free for the trade show until a week before the event. The products are shown on 2 humongous floors in the Jacob Javits center in NYC.
IN ADDITION — The Photoplus expo also has an amazing selection of seminars (with well-known instructors) that you can choose to attend if you pay for them.
Hope to see some of you there, and feel free to connect with me beforehand so we can meet up in NYC. Just as an FYI, hotels in NYC are crazy expensive. If you want to save a few bucks stay in east New Jersey.
