Visual Connections event

Visual media expos

Our visual media expos in cities around North America are the most important dates in many visual media professionals’ calendars. The events encompass education, discovery of new suppliers, and networking.

The sessions and round-table discussions can inform and update you on issues to do with copyright, clearances, licensing, searching, and managing your images.

The exhibit floor provides an opportunity to discover new sources of photography, illustration and footage, from niche and general libraries around the world. Connect with existing suppliers and meet the people behind the website and emails.

Your colleagues, past and present, are likely to be there too, so it’s for networking and catching up. Enjoy the buzz, free quality refreshments (including beer and wine), free prize drawing and cool giveaways.

Directory

Our international online directory of suppliers of images, footage, fonts and services ensures that the solution to all your visual media needs is only a mouse-click away 24/7.

We’re also a gateway to the innovative pacaSearch engine, allowing you to search across over 150 million images.

Blog & InfoZone

Our regular blog posts cover a wide range of news and issues of particular interest to image/footage/art buyers: new collections, industry trends, productivity tips, and fascinating stories.

Our InfoZone contains articles covering the essentials of copyright, releases and licenses.
