NASHVILLE, TN – Registration for Professional Photographers of America's annual photography convention and expo is now open.
The 2015 edition of Imaging USA is set for Feb. 1 to 3 at the Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. More than 10,000 industry professionals will descend upon the Music City for three days of photography education and inspiration as well as some exclusive shopping.
Imaging USA is the longest running international photographic convention, expo and image exhibition in the world, drawing thousands of professionals from across the globe. The event dates back to 1880, when it began as the annual convention and tradeshow for Professional Photographers of America (PPA). It continues to grow and evolve along with industry trends and technology.
A few major components of Imaging USA include the three-day Imaging Expo tradeshow, featuring more than 600 booths, several all-inclusive parties and more than one hundred speeches, presentations and hands-on demonstrations by some of the most respected names in the photographic industry. Imaging USA's renowned educational classes are geared to improve a photographer's business skills, photographic repertoire and use of technologies. The event also features mentoring opportunities, portfolio reviews and much more.
New to Imaging USA this year will be a new mobile app and game, extended viewing hours for the International Photographic Competition (IPC) exhibit and an opening night Super Bowl viewing party.
Imaging USA is the annual first major photography event of the year where photographers seek to kick-start their business.
