Visual Connections returns to New York on Thursday, October 27th to stage another free discovery, networking and education event exclusively for buyers and commissioners of photography, footage and illustration. The venue will again be Metropolitan Pavilion, conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan.

This is a unique opportunity for creative directors, designers, editors, publishers and producers to find creative inspiration and new providers of assignment and stock visual media; to pick up tips about legal issues, trends and new resources; and network with peers from leading creative and editorial companies.

“Visual Connections brings picture professionals together better than any other regular event I know of.” – Doug Brooks, Image Research Team

22 of the 68 exhibitors are new to Visual Connections New York and represent the full gamut of stock and commissioned photography, motion and illustration. They include artist reps ETC Creative, Illustration USA, Renee Rhyner, and Robert Bacall Reps; 360° panoramas specialist 360Cities; movie and TV archives British Film Institute, British Pathé and CNN Collection; user-generated content specialists EyeEm, Newsflare and Scopio; research tools from Capture, DMLA, Footage.net and Stockindexonline; and many other stock agencies.

Visual Connections is delighted to be working again with Workbook, the leading marketing resource for commercial photographers and illustrators, as the event’s Principal Sponsor.

“Visual Connections gives us the opportunity to take our message about the power of assignment photography and illustration to an entirely new audience,” said Bill Daniels, CEO of Workbook.”

“Visual creatives who routinely use stock benefit from seeing the work of some of the world’s top photographers; and those who mainly commission new content benefit from seeing the wide variety of stock available when time or budgets are tight,” says Deborah Free, Co-President of Visual Connections.

The ever-popular annual Keynote Q&A will focus on the issues surrounding publishing and sourcing visual content on social media platforms. The panel includes two intellectual property attorneys, Nancy Wolff and Bob Stein, with interestingly different perspectives.

The first afternoon session will look at cutting-edge technology to help with finding the right visuals fast. This is followed by presentations by four leading producers and photo/videographers and discussion around how to go about commissioning or producing high quality shoots that combine motion and stills.

The final session is with guest speaker Anna G. Dickson from Google talking about “Navigating the new world of imagery is trickier than it seems.”

Workbook, the leading marketing resource for commercial photographers and illustrators, will again be the Principal Sponsor of this year’s Visual Connections Image Expo at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York on October 27.

Workbook’s involvement last year took Visual Connections in an exciting new direction, into assignment photography, illustration and footage, perfectly complementing the traditionally strong presence of editorial and creative stock agencies, and making the event even more attractive to creative buyers and producers.

“Visual Connections gave us the opportunity to take our message about the power of assignment photography and illustration to an entirely new audience,” said Bill Daniels, CEO of Workbook. “We felt like it could not have gone better so we look forward to working with the Visual Connections team to build on that success at this year’s event!”

Artist reps, production companies and stock agencies are all part of one ecosystem, supplying publishers, advertisers, designers and TV producers with millions of images and seconds of footage. Visual Connections is the meeting place for all the professionals involved in creating, researching, sourcing and licensing visual content.

97% of the people who attend Visual Connections are actively seeking new providers of visual media; and that’s what they find: agencies and reps they hadn’t heard of and wouldn’t have found out about any other way.

“This relationship with Workbook has been hugely successful in helping us become the meeting place for all visual creatives. Those who routinely use stock benefit from seeing the work of some of the world’s top photographers; those who mainly commission new content benefit from seeing the wide variety of stock available when time or budgets are tight,” says Deborah Free, Co-President of Visual Connections.

Fully-inclusive exhibitor packages start at just $1,040 for a first-time exhibitor booking by July 31, plus there’s a range of advertising and promotion options to suit all budgets.
