Helpful Hints: October 2016 Archives

by James Yates

Imaging USA in San Antonio is right around the corner, January 8-10, 2017, but there are a few ways to save money if you get started NOW! Here is a list of tips to put in place and ensure that you show up in Texas with even more spending money...

1. REGISTER EARLY! Aren't registered yet? Imaging USA is the world's strongest and longest-standing professional-photography convention, with hundreds of classes, tons of networking opportunities, a huge photo exhibit, and a giant expo floor. Over 10,000 photographers attend to be taught by the industry's best. Register by December 8, 2016 to save $50 with the Early Bird Rate! 

2. BOOK YOUR HOTEL EARLY! If you're not staying at the host hotels, chances are good you'll have to spend some money on a taxi or parking to come over for some of the events. Why bother? Stay at the host hotels and be at the center of it all. They're filling up fast, though (especially for Pre-Con) so BOOK NOW at our easy, one-stop-shop booking platform.

Imaging USA Host Hotels
•  San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter (HEADQUARTERS HOTEL)
•  San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk
•  Hilton Palacio Del Rio
•  Grand Hyatt San Antonio

3. FIND A ROOMMATE! Get on theLoop, PPA's exclusive social network, to post about and find a roommate. Everything's cheaper when you split the cost. 

4. MAKE AN EXPO GAME PLAN! Create a shopping list of the things you need for your studio in 2017 and grab those items first. The trade show floor is the best place to find exclusive deals from vendors, so save your holiday cash for January 8-10. 

Get ready to enjoy an amazing trip to San Antonio and rest easy until then knowing you're saving money!
