The expo offers a unique opportunity to discover new and inspiring image collections from around the world, and meet existing suppliers in person. New to the expo this year are 123RF, Arcangel Images, AUGUST, British Library Images Online, Design Pics, ImageBrief, Living4media, Maskot, Mirrorpix, OTTO, Polaris Images, Tetra Images, ImageBrief and US PRESSWIRE.
