It may only be the middle of summer but the WPPI team can barely contain its excitement, having
been hard at work for the past several months working on the 2018 show, which takes place next
We’ve made lots of pulse-pounding announcements over the past month, including the fact
that WPPI 2018 will be held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
What makes WPPI so great is its sense of community, and that will thrive in this new location, as
will our top-notch education offerings and huge Expo. Wedding and portrait photographers—and
now wedding filmakers too—will be able to build on their skills, network and business while also having numerous
meeting-point places, bar and restaurant offerings and much more.
Last but not least, let’s give a warm welcome to our new Community Directors, Jerry and Melissa Ghionis, who
will also continue as Directors of The Annual, WPPI’s 16 x 20 Print, Album and Filmmaking Competition. And a big
congrats to new Show Director, Mike Gangel, and Theresa Raffetto on her promotion as Conference Director!
We look forward to seeing you in 2018, and in the meantime, continue to visit wppionline.com and
rangefinderonline.com for more exciting announcements and videos.
