VISUAL CONNECTIONS NEW YORK IMAGE EXPO
PUBLISHERS NOTE: REAL COMMUNICATION
Visual Connections Image Expos are a favorite of mine. These
are small and intimate gatherings where image buyers and
sellers exchange information in settings conducive to real communication. Plus there's always a strong program of
educational sessions to make the time out of the office worthwhile. Plus quality fare all day, with wine and beer
after 5 pm, cool giveaways and valuable prizes. Next
up: New York Image Expo on Wednesday, October 13. GDUSA
readers are invited to attend for free. Just go to the
link under my name right now for free registration. Or
read on for more details. I hope you enjoy this unique
gathering as much as I do.
