The NEC, Birmingham. 6 to 9 March 2011. Just about anyone who’s anyone when it comes to cameras, kit, and pictures will be there, from manufacturers to printers, from software companies to publishing houses. There will also be talks and workshops taking place, too. It’s Focus on Imaging 2011. It’s Europe’s largest imaging show.
Last year over 37,000 people tramped through the exhibition. That’s, well, the population of a medium-sized town. (Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk springs to mind.) With over 200 stands this year, all those people, and so much shininess (including, I believe, the Fuji Finepix X100) there’ll be plenty to hold your attention.
Trade admission is free, but you need to register before you go. If you’re not trade, it’s £8 if you book in advance. Many, many more details (and booking facilities) on the Focus on Imaging website.
