    I just saw an ad for it. Have you ever been? Is it worthwhile?

    I'm getting hooked up with free tickets, so I'm thinking it will be worthwhile haha.. plus I live ten minutes away.. I checked out the website and all the big and small distributors will be there... looks like it will be good.

    Lucky you on both counts: saving the $15 entry fee, and being close to the Int'l Centre.

    Indeed..
    If I can get extra tickets, I'd be willing to give them to someone on this forum that's planning on going.

    I've been a couple times, it's a pretty good show. Lot's and lot's of product, you can play with all the SUPER expensive lens and camera bodies, and there's generally a lot of new gear to check out.

    They have 1 hour teaching seminars running all day, lots to choose from because they have 5 going at once (3 rooms, 2 stages in the show floor). They sometimes have some great info. Some of them are basically advertising for a product, but I picked up some great tips.

    Just don't be afraid to walk out and check out another one if it's not what you thought it would be (that happened a few times... make sure you sit by the door!).

    A little tip for those in the TO area, if you sign up for Henrys e-mail newsletter, they send a free admission ticket each show (they're the sponsors).

    Have fun!

    I don't think they give them away at the store, it's a special deal for anyone who signs up to their e-mail list. It may be to late for this show, but it would work for the next one.

    http://www.henrys.com/webapp/wcs/stores/henrys/subscribe/index.jsp

    That's the link to the newsletter, you sign up, and then before the show they email you a complimentary ticket. I'd offer you mine, but I deleted it (wasn't planning on going this round). Sorry about that!

    Well this may work I can get there and still have time to get to a Fashion show I have a photographers pass for the weekend. Looking to buy 2 prime lenses and pen tablet and think I will head there first thing tomorrow and see if I can get any deals on what I am looking to purchase. The Photographic and Digital Imaging Show opens at 11 am so if I get there at opening gives me 3-31/2 hours and leaves me 30 minutes to get to the Fahion show. Hmmmmm. I wonder if i can pull it all off? Worth a shot for the $15 dollar fee and the fee covers the 3 days and depends on the designer lineup may be able to get there a second time, just hate having to rush. Figures this all has to happen on the same weekend.
