All WPPI 2013 classes, events and trade show activities took place at the MGM Grand hotel and conference center in Las Vegas, NV, from March 7 - 14, 2013. WPPI remains the biggest show in the world for wedding and portrait photographers. Like-minded professional photographers gather each year to attend WPPI in Las Vegas, NV, to sharpen their technical and business skills, to learn from the most successful and talented photographers working in the business today and to network with their peers.

Equally important, WPPI attendees were exposed to the latest and greatest products and services from the hundreds of exhibitors that participated in a 3-day Expo (trade show) during which manufacturers and distributors displayed everything from cameras and lenses to lighting solutions, plus post-production techniques, online- and print-presentation ideas and more.

"WPPI 2013 had something for everyone! With so many options and opportunities for learning, choosing which Platform, Master and Plus classes to take was challenging and exciting for our attendees," said Jason Groupp, WPPI Director. "It was awesome to witness the non-stop enthusiastic response from attendees who came eager to learn! Warm welcomes, hugs, and friendly exchanges engulfed the MGM, which has been synonymous with WPPI's culture.  As we all know, learning in the classrooms is just part of the experience during WPPI. Whether grabbing a sandwich with a friend, a drink at Rouge, or gathering in a small group around the pool, knowledge was shared and gained all day and all night! That's why our attendees heart WPPI!"

The 33 rd annual WPPI 2013 featured 176 speakers, 168 conference classes and over 300 exhibitors and brands occupying 80,000 square feet of exhibit space. Additionally, there were nearly 2,000 submissions in this year's annual Print & Album Competition, which is nearly 25% more than last year.

On hand to teach WPPI attendees were some of the world's finest photographers and photographic instructors including Jay Maisel, Ben and Erin Chrism, Marcus Bell, Jennifer Rozenbaum, Zach and Jody Gray, Jerry Ghionis, Sue Bryce, Joe Buissink, Jasmine Star, Cliff Mauntner, Vanessa Joy and Rob Adams, Bambi Cantrell, Doug Gordon, Jeremy Cowart, Julieann Kost, and Tamara Lackey among many others.
