Checklist for Photographers Before Attending Photography Conferences

At the first quarter of each year, the two big photography conferences, Imaging USA and WPPI, are held. It is the time for professional photographers to gather, to connect and to learn. It is also time for companies in the photo industry to debut new products and services they have been busy working on.

This year, WPPI is March 5-7, 2024 at the Mirage, Las Vegas. Along with hundreds of other exhibitors, Zno, is proud and excited to return to WPPI this year. Look for our big hanging Zno sign to find us at Booth #719. We’ll see you there!

Learn About WPPI in Advance

There is A LOT happening at these conferences. To stay on course and energized at these conferences, it is important to know what will happen during the conference before booking the tickets. Usually, the conference will hold lectures, workshops, photo walks, and other activities to attract more attendance. Learning about each day’s schedule will allow you to better plan your trip.

Experience WPPI Workshops

Photography is a special industry that is constantly evolving. There is always something new to learn. That’s why it is valuable to attend photography conferences to learn from these master photographers. You can practice shooting at a photowalk, select workshops such as lighting, posing, in addition to classes on how to run your photography business. Because professionally where you are now, is where they have been. So tips, tricks and lessons you learn at the conference will be invaluable when you return home to run your photography business.

Seize the Photographer Industry Trends

The charm of a large-scale conference is that people related to the industry will attend no matter which niche they belong to. With thousands of people in attendance, it is the best time to watch and learn what the new industry trends are. It is an opportunity to talk to fellow professional photographers, print labs, camera manufacturers, accessory companies and software service companies. Learn what they are doing and what they can do to help you adopt these trends and stay ahead.

Checklist for Photographers Before Attending WPPI Photography Conferences

Build new relationships to Grow Your Business

WPPI will have over thousands of photographers and industry professionals to help you grow your professional network. Photographers will find mutuals in the photography community here, build profitable relationships with vendors, and connect with colleagues in real life. It’s a professional photographer’s networking dream.

Confirm Your WPPI Vendors List At Least Twice

With hundreds of exhibitors on the show floor, it is important to keep track of a vendors list that you wish to visit. This is a list of vendors you currently use and vendors you wish to learn more about. So, it is advantageous to set up your events schedule of classes and workshops to attend and list of booths to stop at. Being able to get some face time to make connections with your vendors is invaluable because you never know when you have questions or issues and need assistance in the future.

Catch WPPI Show Special Offers

When visiting a booth, it is not only important to speak to the vendor, but it is also important to see, touch, and feel their products. But don’t forget, they often will have show specials available to those only in attendance at the show. They may include product and/or service discounts, free samples, and more! This year at WPPI, Zno invites you to join their free loyalty program specifically designed for professional photographers.

Feel the Product Sample and Find a Reliable Print Partner

Search the words ‘photo print lab’ online will return you thousands of results. But how do you find the right one who will be a reliable partner to you with all those choices? That’s why it is beneficial to attend these conferences and talk to the different print labs. Hold an album in your hand and feel the material. See the quality in their handiwork. Check out their prices. Check out their services. Find one that is right for you and your business needs. You need a reliable partner that you can trust to offer top quality products, exceptional service. That being said, we’re waiting to meet you at the Zno booth #719 at WPPI 2024!
