The PICTA 2009 Picture Agency Fair will again be held in Hamburg, from Mar. 26 to 28. Organized by the German Association of Press and Picture Agencies and Archives, the event will take place in both main halls at the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce.
In 2008, there were 41 exhibitors and approximately 2,000 visitors. Exhibitor stands at PICTA 2009 will be available in several different sizes. In addition to exhibiting for the entire show, the organizers are offering single-day stands for the budget-conscious. Space can be booked through Luckwaldt Messen & Events.
As in previous years, the German Association of Picture Agencies will be offering a program of varied speeches and presentations. For exhibitors, one of the fair’s highlights will be the opportunity to attend the official opening of the Association-sponsored G+J photo award. The invitation-only event will take place on Mar. 27 at the G+J Pressehaus.
