The Big Day Is Here!
After months of planning, the time has finally arrived to pack everything into the van and make our way down the M6 to The Photography Show at the NEC in Birmingham. We'll be leaving on Friday to get everything set up in time for opening day on Saturday, where you can find us at stand G69.
On the stand, we'll have the whole collection of Photo Boards® on display for you to browse and buy on the day. The team will be on hand to answer all of your questions so come along and say hello!
Now in its fifth year, The Photography Show is the biggest event in any photographer's calendar. It's packed full of exhibitors demonstrating the latest in camera equipment and kit as well as a range of talks and seminars from industry leaders and experts. Whether you're a seasoned professional or amateur enthusiast, there is something for everyone. We're especially looking forward to catching a few talks on our lunch break including Darren Brogan's 'Using Instagram to Share Your Story' on the Mobile & Social Stage (14:00 - 14:30 on Saturday 17th) and Jasmine Star's 'Determination, Drive and Building Your Brand - Success in a Social Age' on the Super Stage (11:00-12:30 on Monday 19th).
