Visual Connections returns to Chicago on Thursday, May 5th to stage another networking and education event for image/footage/art buyers and researchers. The venue will again be the beautiful and conveniently located Ivy Room at Tree Studios.
Following our involvement in the New York expo in October, Workbook is pleased to repeat as Principal Sponsor for the Chicago Expo. As the leading resource for finding commercial photographers and illustrators, Workbook will bring artist reps, production companies, and their clients to the table, alongside suppliers and buyers of stock visual media. Creative directors, designers, editors, publishers, and producers will all be seeking creative inspiration and new sources of visual media. The popular sessions program provides opportunity to question industry experts, including a copyright attorney. Check back here at the Workbook Blog, where we will be posting updates about these important discussion groups.
Attending our last event (in 2014) were many of the major advertising and publishing companies based in Chicago, including: BBDO, DDB, Encyclopaedia Britannica, Feldman & Associates, Hallmark Cards, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Leo Burnett, Lipman Hearne, McGraw-Hill, National Geographic Learning, Ogilvy & Mather, Pearson, and many more.
And, to add a little spice to the day, we'll have a Mexican Cinco de Mayo theme to the catering throughout the day and evening.
