PhotoPlus Live will provide professional photographers and photo enthusiasts around the world with a keen sense of what's going on at PhotoPlus Expo through interviews with exhibitors, seminar speakers, and world-class photographers, all from its broadcast booth (#181) located on the show floor. In addition, reporters will walk the aisles and visit seminar presentations to give viewers a real sense of "being there" and expand the PhotoPlus Expo experience to an audience well beyond the estimated 27,000 attendees.
