1. Featuring the Best of the Best!

This is a small intimate event by design—to give you a hands-on experience learning from our featured guests and the opportunity to easily walk away with a network you’ll have for the rest of your life. If you’ve been to those huge events with thousands of participants, you know how intimidating it can be just to start a conversation.
3. We Are Giving Away $5,000

The Visual Nation team wants to do more than just bring people together for an event. We want to equip photographers and videographers with the knowledge and tools to help grow their business in this digital world.
