The Photography Show 2018


A Destination for all Image Creators

After another successful year in 2017, The Photography Show will return to the NEC for the fifth year between 17-20 March 2018. A much anticipated event in the image-making community’s calendar,  the 2018 show will once again offer visitors the chance to try the latest technology from leading photography brands and access a variety of seminars, demos and conferences, designed to suit all levels of photographer. 

The Photography Show is organised by Future Plc, the international media group. It is run by a passionate events team (with 80 years' collective experience!) and is supported by Future’s market-leading photography publications. The magazines include the award-winning Digital Camera and Photography Week as well as N-Photo, PhotoPlus and Professional Photography. Future is also the driving force behind, the UK’s #1 consumer technology website.

The event is endorsed by a number of associations and other media including the Disabled Photographers' Society, the Association of Photographers, the Master Photographers Association, the Royal Photographic Society,  the British Institute of Professional Photography and the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain.
