October is here and that means it's almost time for our sister publication PDN's PhotoPlus Conference + Expo (PPE). What better way to kick off the start of the show than by getting an exclusive deal and an amazing PPE giveaway?
If you're not familiar with PPE, it's North America's largest photography and imaging show, held annually at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Center. This year, it will be held from October 19 to 22 and the trade show will include over 200 exhibitors displaying thousands of the latest products and services for you to touch, try and compare.
On the conference side, you can choose from over 100 educational seminars, Photo Walks and Master Classes to help you improve your craft, run a successful business and discover trends.
This year's Keynote speakers include Mark Seliger, Graham Nash (of Crosby, Stills & Nash) and Cristina Mittermeier, to name just a few, and conference speakers will also include a notable group of photographers from WPPI including Susan Stripling, Vanessa Joy, Miguel Quiles, Brooke Shaden, Peter Hurley and many more. Rangefinder readers can get FREE expo passes now by using the marketing code RFWPPI.
Now—drumroll, please—on to the big giveaway: Rangefinder Facebook fans can enter for their shot to win a Full Conference Pass (valued at $599!). Three lucky winners will receive admission to all conference seminars, an opportunity to walk the PhotoPlus Expo from October 20 to 22, access to all keynote presentations, and entry to Test Drive, a networking event where you can experience new products on October 19, the evening before the Expo officially opens.
