Chapman announced that WEVA EXPO 2007, the wedding and event video industry’s biggest convention and trade show will be held at Bally’s/Paris Las Vegas located in the center of famous Las Vegas Boulevard in Las Vegas, NV, the “entertainment and convention capital of the USA.”

The spectacular roof-top pool of Paris Las Vegas, next to the glowing Eiffel Tower replica overlooking the dazzling lights of the Las Vegas Strip will be the setting for the WEVA industry-wide networking party on Tuesday night August 14, 2007.
WEVA EXPO 2007's state-of-the-art conference sessions, and new technology exhibits slated for the two-day WEVA Trade Show (August 14-15) will be headquartered at Bally’s Las Vegas, which directly adjoins Paris.

“For EXPO 2007, WEVA International is raising the bar once again, setting a new standard in higher education and professional development training for wedding and event videographers nationally and internationally that is unmatched and on the cutting-edge of new industry trends, techniques and technology,” said Dan Argenas WEVA’s Director of Association Communications.
“And, WEVA EXPO 2007 will be affordable for all videographers to attend. Guest room rates will be only $104 per night at Bally’s, and just $139 per night at Paris. Hotel operators will be accepting room reservations for WEVA EXPO 2007 in early January by toll-free numbers and online."
Argenas added, "A key reason EXPO is held in late summer is that it enables videographers to be best prepared for the biggest period of new wedding season bookings, which traditionally starts the first week in January. Videography has come such a long way since our first convention and trade show back in 1991. The EXPO has an enormous impact on videographers, and our industry at large, each and every year. WEVA EXPO 2007 will be an amazing, and groundbreaking, show that wedding and event videographers won’t want to miss!” Watch for more details online at www.weva.com or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
