PHOTOPLUS 2020 (Virtual Experience)
November 1, 2020
CONNECT, LEARN, AND PARTICIPATE IN PHOTOPLUS 2020
Earlier this week, we at PHOTOPLUS announced that we will not host our in-person event this year. And while it’s a shame we won’t be able to gather with you at the Javits Center in October, we are excited about the online experience and community we’re creating so you can connect you with your favorite brands for free education, product demonstrations, networking and community building opportunities 365 days a year. This new online gathering place, PHOTOPLUS+, will launch November 1, 2020.
In this week’s edition of our weekly column The Fives, we’re highlighting aspects of PHOTOPLUS+ and the features that we’re excited to share with you!
EARN ABOUT NEW PRODUCTS
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented big challenges for the photo industry, but that “hasn’t stopped advancements in technology or [the creation of] important and inspiring work from our community,” notes Joseph Kowalsky, the Show Director of PHOTOPLUS+. Beginning November 1, you’ll be able to watch on-demand videos and live presentations by brands that will show you the new tools and technologies they’re creating, and you’ll be able to learn how that software and equipment can carry your work forward.
CHAT OR VIDEO CALL WITH BRANDS TO DIG DEEPER
Once you’ve checked out the equipment and other products you’re interested in, chat or video conference live with brand representatives to ask questions and get more information. The PHOTOPLUS+ platform will make it easy for you to connect and find the information you want about a product you’re interested in.
FREE EDUCATION FROM TOP PHOTOGRAPHERS
The top photographers you always want to see and learn from at PHOTOPLUS will share their insights, ideas and techniques on PHOTOPLUS+ . You’ll be able to watch live presentations, and also revisit talks on-demand, making it easy to return to the tips and techniques that are most helpful to you.
DON’T JUST WATCH,
PARTICIPATE IN LIVE SESSIONS
During live sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in live discussions with peers and pose questions to the speakers. This live interaction and discussion promises a richer and more engaging learning experience.
BUILD YOUR NETWORK
We’ve all heard it before: photography can be a solitary pursuit—especially now! That’s why we’re excited to help you connect with a community of like-minded peers. The PHOTOPLUS+ platform will help introduce you to people who share your interest in photography and video through discussion groups and by suggesting connections to other registered subscribers. Chat with folks, make connections and build community around topics, techniques and ideas that inspire you creatively.
The most exciting thing to us about PHOTOPLUS+, though, is the opportunity to create connections within the photo industry year-round. After the platform launch on November 1, we’ll be adding new content and creating new community building opportunities all year.
