“The goal of Pro Imaging CONNECT is to bring together executives from different segments of the photo imaging industry to share ideas and build relationships. Digital technology is breaking down the barriers between the amateur photography, the professional photography and graphic arts markets. PI CONNECT unites these industry interests to build relationships for the future. ”

The PI CONNECT conference provides a platform to exchange ideas on a wide variety of topics relevant to our industry today. The speakers and their topics were thoughtfully chosen and the environment encouraged discussion. Feedback from the attendees was very positive and there was a common theme of the content being timely and interesting.”

As I attended the conference, I was able to benefit from the speakers and make valuable connections. The Pro Imaging CONNECT Conference is a great way to bring people together from the Photo, Photo technology and Printing spaces into a collaborative environment to advance the market.
