Free PDN PhotoPlus Expo Trade Show Tickets

BL News

PDN’s PhotoPlus Expo in New York City is the year’s biggest photography industry trade show with previews of unreleased gear, inspiring talks from professional photographers, and free goodies from vendors like us! Attend for free by going through the (admittedly gauntlet-esque) registration process PPE has set up. The registration form is long (if you experience any confusion, see below – we walk you through it) but it is worth it to get the free Expo Pass, which includes admittance to the lounge with Wi-Fi.

Expo Hours

Thursday, Oct 24th 10:00am – 5:00pm
Friday, Oct 25th 10:00am – 5:00pm
Saturday, Oct 26th 10:00am – 4:00pm


We are in booth #124 of the main hall right next to Canon, Sony, and Nikon.

How to Get Your Free Expo Pass:

• Visit this link and follow along below if you have any trouble/confusion. We cannot troubleshoot their site – this is the best we can do to make the process easy. Please contact PPE for account issues.


This part is easy enough.


Next, you must do a search for yourself even if you are already certain you are not registered. It’s silly, we know, but that is how it’s done.


You will see results that are obviously not you so choose “My name is not listed”.


We then, perplexingly, came to this page which seemed to just say the same thing the previous page did but play along.


Fill out your contact info, pretty standard.


We’re not discouraging anyone from buying a PDN membership – they’re great! But know that you do NOT have to sign up for anything that costs money in order to get the free Expo Pass.


Now we’re at the demographics form. They require it.


Finally we come to the pass choices. Be sure to pick only the free one!


Check your email. You will get a confirmation letter with a code. These are the instructions we received. Don’t forget your confirmation letter when you arrive!
