JACKSON, Mich. – ¬ The PMA 08 International Convention and Trade Show, the world's largest annual photo imaging trade show for the estimated $83 billion worldwide industry, is set for Thursday, Jan. 31 through Saturday, Feb. 2, 2008, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nev., USA.
"While we are fully committed to the city of Las Vegas and our early February dates, we have listened to the comments and concerns of our various constituencies regarding the overlap with Super Bowl XLII, held Feb. 3 in Phoenix," says Ted Fox, PMA Executive Director and CEO. "We've responded in a timely fashion.
"PMA will continue to offer the full complement of educational opportunities that are the hallmark of our convention, as well as allied meetings of PPFA®, DIMA®, PSPA™, SPAA, PIEA and PSRO™," said Fox. "Super Bowl week has traditionally been an exciting time for the city of Las Vegas – and its hotels – and we anticipate tying into a number of these events for our attendees and our exhibitors."
PMA 08 will mark the 84th annual convention for the association. PMA conventions are open to business owners and executives in the photo imaging industry, as well as press and media representatives.
