Industry Insider: January 2013 Archives

January 2013 Archives

At Imaging USA this year (Jan. 20-22), we set records. It's no promo push--in over 100 years, none of our Imaging USA events has had such huge advance registration ending with 10,800 enthusiastic attendees who are already telling their friends this is the show they can't miss!

Why was it so great? Maybe it was the drool-worthy products and services you exhibitors brought to the Imaging EXPO. Perhaps it was the jam-packed class schedule with topics and experts that helped attendees grow their skills. Maybe it was the inspirational pick-me-ups that were around every corner of the trade show and convention center. And it was probably a combination of all those great things!

So we wanted to send a great big THANK YOU to everyone--attendees, exhibitors, sponsors and volunteers--who helped make Imaging USA 2013 the most rewarding and exciting international photographic convention and trade show of the year! The EXPO and your contributions towards creating a lively environment full of shopping opportunities for the attendees remain at the epicenter of this event.
