The Photography Show and Video Show opens its doors again this weekend at the NEC in Birmingham, England, running on 17, 18 and 20 September from 10:00 to 17:00 each day. 

The show will be closed as a mark of respect for the National Day of Mourning on Monday, September 19.

As last year, The Photography Show & The Video Show is back as an in-person imaging extravaganza – and is a must-attend event for photographers and videographers of all experience levels, from eager enthusiasts to practicing professionals.  


Over 250 of the biggest brands in the business will be exhibiting at the show, including Canon, Sony, Nikon, Fujifilm, Olympus and Sigma, enabling you to chat to industry experts, watch kit demonstrations and take advantage of exclusive show discounts where you can make serious savings. Check out this preview video for a taste of what's on offer:

There will also be a dedicated program of live talks, masterclasses and presentations, topped by the Super Stage – where you'll be able to see headliners like Christina Mittermeier and Colin Prior (opens in new tab) share their stories, insights and expertise – along with free talks and demonstrations featuring working professionals, product experts, and YouTube personalities like Gavin Hoey and Jack Harries. 

Away from the hustle and bustle of exhibitor stands, you can check out a selection of galleries including the return of Fujifilm's Printlife exhibition, the finalists of the SheClicks photo awards, and many more.
