The one day event for Picture Buyers will take place in New York Cirty on October 20th

PRESS RELEASE

Visual Connections (formerly Picturehouse Marketing US) will be hosting its annual Image Expo at the Altman Building in New York City on Thursday, October 20th.

This is a unique one-day event for image buyers, researchers, designers, art directors, and other users of images and footage to discover new sources of imagery. Our 70+ exhibitors are coming from all around the US, Great Britain, Canada, Sweden, Germany and France to demonstrate what they have to offer, and to learn from the people who use their images.

In the words of one of our past exhibitors, “This event is the real definition of social networking!”

Visual Connections is excited to welcome thirteen agencies to New York for the first time, including six that have launched only recently:

DepositPhotos, In Transit Images, Mother Image, Robana Picture Library, SnapFish Stock Images and Venus Stock.

As ever, Visual Connections New York is not just about work: complimentary food and drinks are served throughout the day; beer (sponsored by Shutterstock and Brooklyn Brewery) and wine is served from 5pm. For light relief, Bridgeman Art Library is running a Wheel of Fortune, and the ASPP (American Society of Picture Professionals) is running a Snapshot Photo Booth. And our ever-popular prize drawing has some fantastic prizes, including a bicycle and an iPad 2.

Everyone today needs a good portrait photo for online profiles and the like, so Roux Strategy will be running a Professional Portrait Studio, offering make-up and photography by Nicolett Jakab for just $75.

Entry to the expo is free, but restricted to professional image buyers. For more information or to register go to:
