"Being the convention’s 15th year means WEVA EXPO 2005 will be a hallmark event for our association and the professional wedding and event video industry at large," said WEVA International’s Director of Association Communications Dan Argenas.
Wedding and event videography has come such a long way since our first convention and trade show back in 1991. Since then, the EXPO has continued to have an enormous impact on videographers, manufacturers, and industry associates each and every year."
WEVA EXPO 2005, he said, will reflect this tremendous influence with state-of-the-art seminars, workshops, hands-on exhibits, special activities and demonstrations devoted exclusively to professional wedding and event videographers. Admission is open to both members and non-members. WEVA International members receive discount admission.
To accommodate the show’s continuing growth, and in honor of the association’s historic event, WEVA EXPO, the industry's biggest show of the year is moving from Bally’s Las Vegas to larger facilities at the world-famous Las Vegas Hilton.
