With more than 80 Seminars and Master Classes, 225 Exhibitors, Photo Walks and a Trilogy of World-Class Keynotes, PhotoPlus Expo 2014 is the Must-Attend Event for Photography Professionals, Students, Filmmakers, and Enthusiasts
NEW YORK (July 15, 2014) — Emerald Expositions, Inc. announced today that registration is open for its PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo, taking place October 29-November 1, 2014 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. With NYC as your backdrop and Halloween as the theme, PhotoPlus Expo (PPE) will be an experience no one should miss this year! From a trilogy of world-class keynotes to photo walks throughout the city and a conference program of seminars featuring the industry’s finest working photographers, PPE continues to be the premiere annual gathering place for visual artists to inspire and be inspired. And, if it’s a party you are looking for, PhotoPlus will be hosting its annual bash at the luxurious 230 Fifth Rooftop Club and Penthouse Lounge exclusively for its VIP Expo Pass holders.
Attracting more than 22,000 attendees last year, PPE continues to be the pilgrimage site for photographers, filmmakers and those in digital imaging. A testament to this is the 2014 lineup of keynote speakers, which will include Ben Folds, Martin Parr and a panel presentation by A Day Without News speakers, including Aidan Sullivan, Santiago Lyon, Lynsey Addario, Ron Haviv and Antonio Bolfo. Some of the most successful and respected professionals in the photography and filmmaking business today will lead seminars, Master Classes and workshops. These classes will focus on elements within lighting, portraiture, filmmaking, post-production, social media and marketing, weddings and special events, to name a few. A complete listing of seminar topics and presenters can be found at PhotoPlusExpo.com.

Members of the Photo Group (PDN, PhotoServe.com, and WPPI) save up to 30% on all conference seminar passes: Full Conference Pass, One Day Conference Pass, as well as A-la-Carte Seminars and Master Classes. Through July 31, 2014, the price of a Full Conference Pass is $399 for members and $449 for non-members. The price of a One Day Conference Pass is $149 for members and $169 for non-members.

Conference passes will include free admission to all keynote presentations and to Test Drive, a new panel discussion, product preview and networking event. People are encouraged to register early to avoid additional fees for late registration.
“We are very excited about this year’s show. The energy we feel through our social channels is vibrant, and our conversations with presenters and exhibitors lead me to believe that this year’s PPE conference will be engaging in a number of innovative ways,” explains Lauren Wendle, vice president/publisher of PDN and the Photo Group.
This year’s Expo will feature more than 225 of the industry’s most prominent manufacturers of photo and video gear, software and accessories. The focus of the show is to give attendees an opportunity to view and compare thousands of imaging tools currently available to creative professionals all in one convenient location.
