Canon SA has confirmed the dates for this year’s highly anticipated Canon SA Expo and also announced a few very exciting additions to the 2013 event.
The expo will be held at the Sandton Convention Centre from the 29th of November to the 1st of December and will be open daily from 10:00 to 18:00. Entrance is as always free of charge.
The company is really excited about this year’s event, which will once again be a showcase of Canon’s wide range of consumer imaging and bigger business solutions. Visitors to the event will have unequalled opportunity to interact with Canon experts and products, including being amongst the first to see and touch some of the company’s latest technologies. Aside from perusing and experiencing Canon equipment, visitors will also be able to purchase products at discounted prices. The company will announce specials on the dedicated Canon SA Expo website closer to the event.
The Expo will include inspiring speaker sessions by some of the country’s foremost photographers, with two speaker sessions running simultaneously throughout the day from Friday to Sunday. For the first time Canon will also introduce interactive displays which will showcase the abilities of select products. “We are gearing up for our biggest and best Canon SA Expo yet, with the widest range of products on active display. Visitors can expect to be blown away by the show, our products and our guest speakers this year.”
Another new innovation of this year’s Expo is the introduction of live training sessions
hosted by industry experts. These sessions will be presented daily and can accommodate up to 20 people at a time. Visitors will also be encouraged to ask any related questions they might have with regards to utilising their photographic equipment. Attendees interested in these training sessions are advised to bring along their own equipment.
“With each year that we have hosted the expo, it has grown in stature to become one of the most-anticipated and well-attended of its kind,” says the company’s Marketing Manager, Michelle Janse van Vuuren.
According to Janse van Vuuren, there will once again be a photographic competition, which will run in tandem to the event. Aspiring photographers will be invited to enter one or more of the competition categories for a chance of winning fantastic prizes.
The top entries in the competition will also be profiled in a dedicated gallery at the Expo, providing excellent exposure for emerging photographers. The themes and mechanics for entry to the competition will be announced shortly.
