PRESS RELEASE: WPPI Launches New User-Friendly Website
Easy to navigate site features detailed information regarding WPPI’s annual convention and trade show, educational opportunities, events, travel information and more
Culver City, CA (November 3, 2009) – Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2010, the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) announces today its redesigned and easier to navigate convention and trade show Web site at: http://www.wppionline.com/storage/lasvegas/home.html . Loaded with all the information a professional photographer could need, the new WPPI website features complete WPPI 2010 details including educational opportunities, events, travel information and special deals as well as a full trade show exhibitor listing.
New to the WPPI website is the “WPPI Blog” and “My WPPI Schedule”. The “WPPI Blog” will feature photography tips and WPPI updates from numerous WPPI speakers. The “My WPPI Schedule” was created to help attendees organize their daily schedule by allowing them to check on the classes they want to attend, then add those classes to their schedule and then print out a customized schedule. Also featured on the newly redesigned homepage of the website is a highlight video showing scenes from the 2009 annual WPPI convention.
“Our newly redesigned website has so much to offer seasoned WPPI attendees as well as those new to the industry and thinking of attending the convention for the first time,” said George Varanakis, WPPI’s group publisher and executive vice president. “To succeed, today’s photographers need to be as knowledgeable about operating their businesses as they are about their cameras, lights and posing techniques. It’s now easier than ever to navigate through WPPI’s vast educational offerings to see what’s going to be happening when and where and why all photographers should be there.”
All WPPI 2010 classes, events and trade show will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV from March 4-11, 2010.
