This year’s The Photography Show at the NEC has been cancelled and replaced with an online event.
With all the uncertainty about large gatherings, the organisers of The Photography and The Video Show made the decision to cancel this year’s event. There will be a virtual imaging festival on 20 and 21 September and next year’s show at the NEC will take place 18 to 21 September 2021.
Jonny Sullens, head of events at Future, said: “While we believe that there’s nothing quite comparable to the benefits of the live show, we know that the decision to take The Photography Show and The Video Show online this year and return to the NEC in 2021 is the best solution for our community during these unprecedented times. Of course, we’re very disappointed not to be making the annual trip to Birmingham, but we’re really excited about what the virtual event can offer. The virtual platform we’re using is incredibly versatile and provides us with a fantastic opportunity to try something new, showing off photography and video in a different way. We look forward to seeing everyone in September, albeit virtually!”
The virtual show will be free to attend and all entry tickets and passes booked or confirmed for the March 2020 event will be valid for the 2021 dates. For more information, please visit The Photography Show website.
