After the exceptional period caused by the corona with only a few personal contacts, it is also time for the photo and imaging industry for a direct exchange. On the occasion of PHOTOPIA Hamburg from September 23 to 26, the new ImagingExecutives @ PHOTOPIA conference on September 24 will offer a welcome platform for top decision-makers in the imaging business.
In a top-class program, top executives in the industry and independent experts will address the opportunities and challenges in the imaging market under the topic of “Vital Opportunities”. Because consumer behavior is changing significantly: while the classic photo segment is developing into a specialist and professional market, the increasingly better camera functions of smartphones make it possible for everyone to take photos and videos in professional quality.
Keep memories alive with photos and videos
The rapid technological development not only leads to a disruption of the previous imaging markets, but also offers opportunities for innovative business models through new value chains. Photos and videos have long been universal means of communication and expression, while their classic function – to keep memories alive – has become conscious again. In this context, the new industry event ImagingExecutives @ PHOTOPIA at PHOTOPIA Hamburg in cooperation with IMAGING + foto-contact and INTERNATIONAL CONTACT acts as a driving force. The aim is to find hardware and software suppliers, image service providers, retailers, distributors and all companies whose business includes the creation, processing, marketing or output of visual content,
“The photo and imaging industry has repeatedly developed pioneering innovations to translate the disruptive consequences of digital transformation into new business models,” explains Thomas Blömer, publisher and editor-in-chief of imaging + foto-contact and INTERATIONAL CONTACT. “The corona pandemic has accelerated many developments and made some deficits, but also opportunities, visible. During the crisis, many consumers rediscovered the value of their memories captured in photos and videos and at the same time learned to use visual media more effectively for digital communication. ImagingExecutives @ PHOTOPIA therefore offers all market participants the long-awaited opportunity to exchange ideas personally about new growth concepts. ”
Tickets for the ImagingExecutives @ PHOTOPIA conference are available for 199 euros at www.photopia-hamburg.com. There is also constantly updated information about the program as well as organizational information with a view to the pandemic situation.
