It’s not all about stock!

After four years at the Altman Building, Visual Connections New York is returning on Wednesday, October 28 to the Metropolitan Pavilion, where there will be more space for sessions, exhibitors and networking.

But that’s not all that’s changing this year: Workbook, the leading resource for finding commercial photographers and illustrators, will be the Principal Sponsor. Their involvement means the exhibit floor will be home to artist reps and production companies, complementing the traditionally strong presence of editorial and creative stock agencies.

Creative directors, designers, editors and producers will all find plenty of creative inspiration, from the wide range of exhibitors, the varied sessions program, and the opportunity to network with other creatives from advertising, design, publishing, and TV production.

Visual Connections visual media expos offer a unique opportunity to discover new suppliers of visual media, meet the people you only speak to and email, and network with peers in the industry. Our New York event hosts a wide range of international and niche suppliers, including stock image and footage agencies, artist reps and production companies.


This year we are delighted to have Workbook, the leading marketing resource for commercial photographers and illustrators, as our Principal Sponsor. Workbook’s involvement helps us attract a wider range of suppliers, including artist reps and production companies that have not previously exhibited with us. “Workbook is proud to sponsor Visual Connections in the hope that we can further cultivate the relationships that result in stunning visual campaigns,” says Bill Daniels, Owner of Workbook.
