What's on for pros?

Professional passes give access to both The Video Show and The Photography Show, including all exhibitors, and stages and theatres. Passes also give access to a range of events, which are exclusive to the pro and trade community.

You will have a show guide voucher included with your badge. Remember to bring it with you so you can pick up your copy - it's a great, all-inclusive guide to the show.

Our Pro Lounge is open throughout the show. It's a relaxing space where you can sit, have a coffee, and take a breather before immersing yourself in tech and tips for another few hours.

Here's some more info on what's on specifically for the pro videographers and moving image makers...
