Photo&Film Expo

The PHOTO & FILM EXPO will take place from 10th-12th JULY 2009 at the Coca-Cola Dome Northgate JHB. 2009 will be the first time an event dedicated to Photography and Film takes place under one roof in SA.
AEC exhibitions has embraced the NGO Tomorrow Trust as the official beneficiary of the PHOTO & FILM EXPO 2009. AEC will donate 6.25% of the door to the Tomorrow Trust, Universal Image the official retailer of the PHOTO & FILM EXPO will donate a percentage still to be determined of all retail sales at the event, to the Trust. AEC has allocated the Trust a 36 sqm stand plus all services so that they can promote their commitment and the work they do in our communities, to the visitors to the event.

AEC will be staging a Photographic Art auction at this year’s event and the proceeds the auctioneer would normally obtain,  will be donated to the Trust.  Photographers and collectors of Photographic Works will be invited to put their work under the hammer. This auction will include product from exhibitors, memorabilia and equipment from the past,  allowing every exhibitor to participate in donating to one of the most professionally run NGO’s in the country.

A short documentary competition of 5 minutes, which will be based on issues of concern facing every South African in their day to day lives, will be launched at the Photo & Film Expo in July this year. This competition will carry very attractive prizes for winner.

AEC invites all suppliers and wholesalers to participate at this event. The PHOTO & FILM EXPO will become the biggest focused photographic show in SA.

PHOTO & FILM EXPO 2009 in association with PiX Magazine

PHOTO & FILM EXPO will highlight the excellence in Still Photography and Film Production in SA. This event will showcase the latest hardware, software, technology, lighting, techniques, facilities and courses available in these fields.

Workshops and training sessions will take place each day at the event. These sessions will be free. All visitors and exhibitors to this event will be able to participate in educating and gaining first hand knowledge from experts in their fields, of all aspects of these dynamic industries.

Factually speaking there are many amateur photographers that have the state of the art equipment and have no idea how to utilise the functionality of the cameras. +

PHOTO & FILM EXPO will be the perfect platform to demonstrate hardware and software functionality, lighting and techniques to visitors at this prestigious event. This will be the ideal opportunity to promote and inform visitors about available courses, associations and photographic clubs.
