VISUAL CONNECTIONS NEW YORK IMAGE EXPO

PUBLISHERS NOTE: REAL COMMUNICATION

visual_connections 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.
