The Photography Show & The Video Show Virtual Festival is less than a month away, and you can now secure your FREE digital seat by registering via The Photography Show website. The futuristic virtual festival will be the first of its kind in the UK and will take place on 20-21 September 2020

Visitors will be able to navigate over 120 stands from exhibitors including Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Sony, Fujifilm and Olympus, where they can chat to industry experts, watch kit demonstrations and take advantage of exclusive show discounts – all from the comfort of their own home. 

The Photography Show’s coveted program of speakers will take to the virtual sphere via both pre-recorded sessions and live-streamed Q&As, and event goers will even be able to enjoy a 3D gallery and exhibition space, and take part in networking elements via Zoom. 

The transition to an online format has facilitated a wealth of exciting opportunities. Visitors will be able to use a new platform called Ask the Experts, where they can chat to a panel of experts for one-to-one advice regarding their work. And following the success of the Burst Mode digital series, presenter of The Photography Show TV, David McClelland, and Digital Camera World editor, James Artaius, will deliver hands-on content with the latest kit and talk to manufacturers about new launches.

While browsing the virtual show floor, visitors will be encouraged to engage with brand specialists, watch product showcases, seek specialist advice and of course, enjoy exclusive discounts on the latest kit. The main stage will host a program of sessions throughout the event including tutorials, demos and interviews, to help inspire photographic and filmmaking journeys. 

“With the show being hosted online, it is more accessible than ever before and we hope this will encourage new audiences to find out what The Photography Show & The Video Show is all about," said Head of Events at Future plc, Jonny Sullens. "We’re thrilled to have the backing of some of the industry’s biggest brands and we’re working hard to transition from the NEC’s bustling halls into a digital world.”

The Photography Show & The Video Show has been bringing the imaging industry together for the past seven years, and welcomed over 32,000 visitors in 2019 alone. It's an event for anyone passionate about photography and filmmaking, and attracts both photographers, filmmakers, vloggers and content creators from enthusiast through to professional. 

The physical show will return to the Birmingham NEC next year, from 18-21 September 2021. For more information, visit:
