Don’t Miss Out on These 10 Amazing Things You’ll Gain From Imaging USA
Imaging USA is a little more than 2 months away, and we want you to be as excited as we are for the greatest event of the year! This event is going to be the best week of your life, and here’s why:
1. Inspiration Everywhere You Go
Imaging USA is going to have you feeling inspired as soon as you walk through the doors. There is something for everyone at the convention, all you have to do is find it. Pro tip: Set up your Imaging schedule either through the Imaging App or whatever you use to get organized before you get there! That way you can take a little bit less time exploring the convention and a little more time being inspired by what’s around you.
2. Valuable Connections
You are going to be surrounded by everyone in the photography field, so it’s time to build your networking skills! Even though it might seem intimidating, you won’t know how it’ll turn out until you start a conversation with that person! Everyone is here to better their photography, so why wouldn’t the be open to developing their network?
3.Tons of Photography Education
If you look at the schedule, you can see that it’s full of photography education which is something that everyone can improve on. Imaging USA is offering everything from the Bridge the Gap classes with speakers like CEO of PPA David Trust, Audrey Woulard, Eden Bao so many other speakers who want to help you succeed in photography. There are speaker presentations happening every day so make sure to find the right ones for you!
4. Immersing Yourself in the International Photographic Exhibit
On top of being surrounded by all things photography, you can also take a step into the International Photographic Exhibit and gaze upon the amazing works that won the competition. If you want a chance to have your work featured at the IPC, make sure to attend the IPC Mentor Sessions so that you can learn what the judges are looking for to prepare for next year’s International Print Competition!
5. Being Surrounded by Passionate Peers
When you go to the convention, you’ll be with people who make you remember why you’re passionate about photography. Everyone here understands your passion for photography in ways that most people can’t. That sense of community is something that other conventions can’t always replicate.
6. Investing in Your Talents
If you think about, every day you spend at Imaging USA is another day where you learned more than you did the day before. Every session you attend and person you met is helping you improve your skills—slowly but surely.
7. Amazing Keynote Speakers
This year the keynote speakers are going to be Vanessa Van Edwards and Jim Kwik. You don’t want to miss out on the advice and insight they have to offer. They are two of the top people in their fields for a reason, so why wouldn’t you want to join their sessions?
8. Exploring the Expo Floor
The name “Expo Floor” is so misleading. Our Expo floor offers way more than just people trying to sell you stuff. If you come by to Expo Floor you’ll be able to:
- View one of the biggest international photography displays in North America from the merited works at the International Photography Competition 2019.
- Attend free mini-classes on marketing print photography at PRINT for Success Theater.
- Witness live demos for products from vendors on the Expo floor.
- See, touch and feel a huge variety of photography-related products from our numerous vendors.
- And so much more!
9. Partying the Night Away
There will be massive parties inside of the Gaylord Opryland Resort where you’ll be able to dance, eat and socialize the night away! There will be live music from the Respectables as you unwind at the Welcome Party after attending the first day of Imaging USA!
10. Exploring Nashville, TN
When you get some free time, you should definitely check out some local Nashville attractions. Hit up the streets of Nashville in search of the best country music or if that’s not your style then check out the amazing tourist attractions like Madam Tussauds Nashville which is within walking distance of the convention. Whatever you decide to do, we know you’ll have a blast!
