Catching my flight to Lost Wages & WPPI. If any forum members there, I'll be in the Canon, onOne, and Software Cinema booths. Please say "Hey!"

Have fun Jack...see you at Photoshop World. Sure I read you were going to be there. HP is featuring my wildlife photography in their booth.

Terrific. I'll hunt you down there and check out your images. Always great.

Jack, sorry I missed you... had to fly back for a session. Seemed like the trade show was smaller this year.... :cool:

Hey Stan,
Really sorry I missed you. It was crazy for me with all my appointments and commitments.
Hope you got my message.

Did you go to both rooms? It's always strange to me to have a show divided into two places.

I did get your message, thanks. I went through both rooms, it was a little odd having the separation.... :cool:

how was it?

It was "interesting". WPPI claimed 16,000 attendees. Where?

And while it was well attended, a lot of vendors told me it seemed like a lot of them became professional photographers at least 2 months ago.

Overall, it was a good, fun show, but it is a different crowd than those who go to Imaging.

It is bigger but different.

This year, it almost felt like a baby Photo East (lol, inside joke for anyone who get's it) but still different.

I was doing demo's twice a day all three days and the majority of crowd was definitely within the first 2-3 years of their journey.

In theory, it must really be a good time for convention organizers.

And for vendors. New photographers need new stuff.

Is it going to be in Vegas again next year?

In Vegas at MGM until 2014. After that, it will probably still be in Vegas.

I plan on being there next year so I guess I'll finally get to see Vegas. Yes I'm 46 and have never been there. I've always figured casinos weren't built by people winning and I had no desire to donate to one so I never ventured there. Now I have an excuse to go.
