The Top Ten Reasons to Attend WPPI
10. Low airfares. Seriously. Have you checked the latest airline and hotel deals? Rates are now so low, it's almost a crime not to come to WPPI!
9. Vegas hasn’t seen events this big since Elvis left the building. This year’s WPPI boasts the biggest events yet: Canon & WPPI's Wedding & Welcome Reception, the Miller's-sponsored Town Hall, and the Kodak Awards Night. Be there to experience them all!
8.Get on track to greater success in today’s business environment. Learning to succeed and win in the photography business is what WPPI is all about. Choose from among 130+ great EDU-Programs with tracks that include: All About Schools, Business Institute, MasterClasses, Platform Programs, Spanish Programming and WPPI PLUS–and keep yourself in the game!
7. Free Concert - Blues Traveller!. Picture this: an exclusive pass to the Blues Traveler concert. It’s real, and it’s only at WPPI ’09’s THE BIG NIGHT on Monday, February 16, sponsored by Nikon.
6. It's Tax Deductible. Sure, it’s great to be in Vegas in the winter, mingling with your colleagues and hobnobbing with the industry’s best. But WPPI is also the best business investment you can make in your future (which just might make it a legit deduction as well)!
5. Learn about the new trends. Wherever you live and work, whether it's middle America or outside of the U.S., you know you need to keep up with the trends. WPPI is the only place where you can meet, greet and learn from the pros—and keep up with all the latest and greatest in our industry.
4. WPPI Print Competition
Come on, admit it. Amid all the congeniality, it's fun to see how the competition stacks up. You can find out who is the best of the best by stopping by this year's Print Competition at WPPI.
3. Wheeling & Dealing. Not the blackjack or poker kind... We’re talking about the fantastic equipment deals you can get at WPPI this year, the best of any trade show in America.
2. There really is such a thing as a free lunch...
This year's WPPI attendee gift is something we know you can all use. Think 2 for 1 entree's and 2 for 1 drinks at almost every restaurant, bar and lounge inside the MGM Grand. All you need to do is stop by the WPPI Booth and ask for your free WPPI Attendee gift!
