PHOTONEXT 2010 at Tokyo Big Sight

The 1st PHOTONEXT photography trade show for professionals will be held on June 29-30, 2010 at Tokyo Big Sight. This is for portrait studios, wedding photographers, school portraits, and photo accessories. You won’t find big-name camera makers like Canon and Nikon who already showed at CP+ in Yokohama.

If you went to CP+ and wondered why you didn’t see any large-format or photo accessories, it’s because they will show at PHOTONEXT.

Again, they have split the Japanese photo expo into two: One for amateurs and one for pros. I liked it the way it was with everybody in one place. It took them years to do that, but unfortunately the coupling did not last long.
