Calumet focus On BIG DAY 3 - Calumet are putting finishing touches to plans for their biggest ever social photography event - BIG DAY 3. "Photographers will have access to On-The-Day discounts worth hundreds of pounds" Stewart Fielder, Calumet Sales Director
Said Calumet MD Andy Morris: Our BIG DAY events have become unmissable calendar dates for hundreds of professional portrait and wedding photographers and serious amateurs nationwide. This summers BIG DAY 3, to be held at The Royal Court Hotel, Coventry on Tuesday June 14, will be bigger and better than ever - with a more centrally located venue for our visitors.
He added: This is an essential event for social photographers and everyone who pre-registers will qualify for priority keynote seminar reservations plus a raft of special on the day discount opportunities.
The overarching ambition this year is to create an event that embraces two vital issues faced by photographers today; how to make more money and how to save more money.
Alongside product demonstrations and key-topic seminars weve arranged to have look-alikes of the Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince Harry and Prince William mingling with visitors throughout the day. It will be a one-off opportunity for photographers to shoot the royal family quite legally and without fear of detention at her Majestys pleasure.
Key industry vendors including Kodak, Bowens, Spicer Hallfield, Nikon, Fuji and Canon are already signed up to exhibit latest products at the show.
Said Stewart Fielder, Calumet Sales Director: Our exhibitors this year will be showcasing a full range of capture, manipulation, output and storage products. There will be more available on the day stock than ever before - and Big Day customers will have a unique opportunity to buy on the spot in our innovative Market Place zone.
He added: All vendors will be promoting special Deals of the Day and every visitor needs to pre-register with us to receive an exclusive BIG DAY discount card worth hundreds of pounds in product reductions.
The BIG DAY 3 seminar programme will cover image management solutions and lighting techniques with addresses from internationally renowned speakers.
Said Morris: By public demand the tutorials this year will be slightly longer and more focused on tackling the key challenges to a photographers bottom line profitability.
