About the 2019 Photo & Video Experience

We are excited to introduce an all new inclusive show for anyone and everyone that loves to take photos and videos. From the smartphone photographer and hobbyist photographer to the semi-pro and professional photographer or videographer.

Forget static displays and traditional expos. In a digital world that is changing by the minute, it is important that we provide a platform that evolves as fast as the industry demands. Never been done before in Africa, and as the name suggests, the Photo & Video Experience offers exhibitors and visitors an opportunity to immerse themselves in an experiential world of interactive zones.

Exhibitors will be able to demonstrate equipment in simulated environments, illustrate real-life comparisons and engage with all aspects of the imaging market – all under one roof.

Helping people to create better memories

Ultimately, the goal is to provide a platform that converts the phoneographer, to a hobbyist photographer, creates aspiration to convert the hobbyist and semi-pro to professional photographers, whilst creating content that satisfies the needs of the professional photographer and videographer.
