The Photography Show is delighted to announce that Canon is the latest major manufacturer to confirm their attendance for the inaugural event – a key date in the UK photography calendar.
Lined up to take place at Birmingham’s NEC, between Saturday 1 and Tuesday 4 March 2014, this new event will combine highly interactive features to entertain and engage consumers, with dedicated conferences and events for professional and retail attendees. The Photography Show will be a must-visit event for enthusiasts, professionals and retailers, with over a hundred companies already committed to exhibit including Panasonic, Fujifilm, Graphistudio and Hasselblad.
Future Head of Events Jonny Sullens says: "We are so pleased that Canon has chosen to exhibit at the debut of The Photography Show. Canon’s importance to the market is obvious and with Manfrotto, EPSON, Tetenal and SIGMA also on board it means that our professional, retail and enthusiasts will be able to experience all the very best, and the latest, products on the market."
Lee Bonniface, UK Country Director at Canon Consumer Imaging says: "We’re very excited to work with The Photography Show and be part of the inaugural event. At Canon we aim to inspire and support all those interested in photography to take their next step in imaging and the show will provide a fantastic opportunity to do this. With emphasis on experiences and interactivity we want the visitors to come away excited and empowered, ready to take whatever their next step will be."
Meanwhile The Photography Show today also unveils a significant partnership with Lomography, the community dedicated to analogue photography. The partnership will see Lomography provide a series of Konstruktor workshop events allowing analogue enthusiasts to take their experience to the max – including building, from scratch, their own camera – the world’s first DIY SLRs.
