PMA 2011 will be on September 8-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall, Las Vegas, Nevada. This annual convention and trade show of the Photo Marketing Association is traditionally held in the first quarter of the year, but organizers say changes in industry buying cycles and in technology developments make the new schedule advantageous.
â€œBased on input from key suppliers and trade groups, the PMA show is changing dates to better serve the photo industry,â€ says Ted Fox, executive director and CEO, PMA.
â€œHaving the PMA 2011 show on the leading edge of the holiday season is the best opportunity to make critical buying decisions for the fourth quarter,â€ says Brian Wood, 2010-11 PMA International president.
The PMA International Convention and Trade Show is billed as the largest annual photo imaging trade show for the estimated $80 billion worldwide industry. It brings together business owners and executives in the photo imaging industry, including the media, with about 400 exhibitors, 300 speakers and approximately 150 educational sessions, covering topics such as digital imaging, employee training, business management, and sales and marketing. It is not open to the public at large.
