Turn a negative in to a positive.

 

Go and do some stock. Lots of development going on at the moment in Brum. HS2 for starters.... Have a mooch around the old Curzon Street station site.

At least you might get a few quid back from picture sales.

Message from The Photography Show & The Video Show Team;
'We are incredibly disappointed that we've had to take this action so close to the event opening. However, it became clear that the recent acceleration in Covid19 cases in the UK has led to heightened concerns for all participants and the show would be negatively impacted from all perspectives should we have proceeded. We understand how important the show is both from an industry and community point of view so we are pleased that we are able to postpone to September when we are hopeful that the threat of Covid19 will have significantly rescinded. Please bear with us while we make all the necessary arrangements to facilitate this move and contact all participants'.

 

FAQs

Q - The show has been postponed, will I need to register again for the new dates?
A - Good news, your badge will be valid for the September show so you don't need to do anything.
Q - I have bought Extras (Masterclass tickets, Super Stage tickets, Workshop tickets), will I be issued a refund?
A - All Super Stage and Workshop tickets will be automatically refunded. Masterclass tickets will remain on your order unless you request for them to be refunded.
Q - Will the programme and exhibitors be the same for the postponed show?
A - We will aim to keep the programme the same where possible, subject to speakers being available for the new dates. We also hope that the exhibitor list will remain much the same.

Thank you for your understanding.

 
Kind regards,

 

The Photography Show & The Video Show Team

Extremely pi$$ed off with this.  However, as other people have said, lets turn it into a positive.   Who wants to meet up for a couple of hours in Birmingham on Saturday from 12?  Anyone?

Last week in Toronto 25,000 people from all over the world met for a mining conference and trade show. When asked why they were there, in light of Covid-19, attendees said they could not afford to miss the Toronto conference.

 

This week a conference attendee from a mining town 400 miles north of the nearest Covid-19 sufferer (Toronto) tested positive, and is in isolation.

 

The photography show did everyone a favour.

Thanks, I was hoping it wasn't going to take until next week, perhaps I can now change my train ticket seeing as I can't get a refund, although having just checked I have had the e-mail conf

Although the Photo show is cancelled, I see that some of the "show deals" from some exhibitors are available for the next 3 days via their websites.

https://www.wexphotovideo.com/latest-offers/

https://www.cameraworld.co.uk/sale

London Camera Exchange - try discount codes Photoshow20 or TPSOL20 (Olympus products) or  TPSCAN20 (Canon products) when checking out.
