While summertime (aka the busy season in our industry) may be upon us, I've got some big news: WPPI has been working hard these last few months to bring you a new conference format! Excited?! Mark your calendars for August 15 to 18 because we'll be kicking off the Visual Nation conference and expo in Chicago!

Our kickoff will feature a powerhouse of industry expert educators and will offer opportunities to learn in an intimate, hands-on environment. At the Visual Nation conference and expo, you'll get the knowledge and experience you need to build an outstanding portfolio and elevate your work. We've got great presentations lined up each day as well as smaller group classes where you'll be able to interact with the teacher of your choice—you're not going to want to miss this!

We hope you’ll join us along with Lindsay Adler, Roberto Valenzuela, Bob and Dawn Davis, Scott Robert Lim, Ray Roman, Joe Switzer, Amanda Holloway, Brooke Shaden, Andrew Funderburg and João Carlos this August at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills resort and conference center. To find out more about this exciting new event, please visit PLUS—The first 100 people to register using my code “grouppdiscount” will get a free hands-on class of your choice!

So as you wind down your summer nights (I recommend a nice cold bottle of Prosecco, some strawberries and a foot massager!) make sure to mark your calendar and update your bookmarks for the Visual Nation conference and expo. This is a great opportunity and I look forward seeing you guys in August!
