Posted on 5/28/2010 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (2)

There is only a little over a week left until the 2010 CEPIC International Congress and New Media Conference in Dublin, Ireland, takes place on June 9–13. This is the premier annual event, worldwide, for those who produce and market stock imagery. It is not too late to register, and if you are a member of the Picture Archive Council of America or the American Society of Picture Professionals, there is a special discount rate.

Here are 16 reasons you should attend:

  1. Share ideas with the top minds and innovators in the stock media industry.
  2. Discover how to stay ahead of the curve and take full advantage of the power of content: entry to the New Media Conference is included in the overall congress fee.
  3. Network with industry peers from around the globe: over 80 countries will be represented in Dublin, the nearest European capital to the U.S.A.
  4. Meet top industry suppliers and technology providers specific to the content and photography industry.
  5. Take away ideas and inspiration from speakers that will inform, educate and challenge you.
  6. Gain valuable insight on choosing the best vendors, service providers and consultants.
  7. Get tips on how to make top dollar in Europe, which is collectively a larger market than the U.S.
  8. Learn about copyright, opportunities for growth in the online space and the convergence of traditional and new media.
  9. Get the whole story on where stock photography is heading.

10.Learn how to raise funds to grow your business in Europe.

11.Get a better understanding of doing business in Europe and how to have a growing pile of Euros.

12.Have fun in the most inspirational city in Europe: be charmed by the Gaelic history of myth and magic and good fun that is Dublin.

13.Meet CEPIC’s inspirational new board.

14.Go to the Irish Races, drink Guinness in the Storehouse and enjoy the surroundings of the newly opened Aviva stadium—home to Irish football and rugby (and learn how these games differ from U.S. football).

15.It is very affordable—low-cost flights from the U.S.A., great deals on hotel rooms and a very weak Euro.

16.Jim Pickerell will be there!
