"Our goal each year is to offer a robust selection of educational seminars for attendees. What we have been able to schedule this year is over the top for our industry," explains Jeff McQuilkin, Director - PDN PhotoPlus International Conference & Expo. "We continue to expand the topics and curriculum of the seminars based on the changing landscape of photography, but the real success comes from the presenters themselves who simply want to be a part of the experience and share what they know with other attendees. And with the addition of WPPI, we expect this year to be more diverse and inspirational than ever," McQuilkin added.
Expanding business opportunities, advanced imaging techniques, and new technologies are the reasons why PDN PhotoPlus Expo has added over 75 new seminars to the 2011 schedule. Seminars covering Wedding, Video, the Business of Photography, Marketing, Website Development, Multimedia, and Social Media are designed to educate and inspire photographers and imaging professionals at every level.
