Industry Night Brisbane


This year we are MIXING things up a bit with 1 Keynote guest speaker and a panel of experienced photographers for Q&A in a format I like to call “You Can’t Ask That!?!?” This is where you are going to ask your burning questions on pen and paper in the mystery question box for our panel to answer. This is Anonymous so you can go to town with your questions!

You also get to meet some of the best suppliers and get your hands on some of the industry’s best photographic products and services in Australia. As they will all jump up on stage to answer questions about themselves and how they can help your business in “The Hot Seat”

The team from Kayell Australia will be doing a live lighting and printing workshop Between 4:30pm – 5:30pm in the main expo area. This is a great opportunity to get hands-on with some lighting equipment and learn about how to print your own work.   

This event is an epic night with lots of fun and laughter, plus some business talk too. It’s a cocktail-style event and includes food throughout the evening. Not to mention the $100’s of door prizes from each of the suppliers!

Plus have a great social night out and meet like-minded photographers! 

FYI – If you can’t make the evening but you want to meet the suppliers, the doors for the expo only will be open from 3-5pm. Yes, you need to get yourself a ticket for this entry too.

Create Your own Marketing Heat Map!

I’ve created a never-before-seen large-scale marketing mind map that will give you a visual analysis that identifies over 125 Marketing touch-points, spanning 8 key areas of marketing. Gain invaluable insights into what’s working well and pinpoint areas that require improvement.

This is going to be a HUGE ASSET  as we use this mind map throughout the workshop, we will be colour-coding these into green, orange and red. Just like a data heat map you will see exactly what areas are cool and under control and which areas fire hot and need work on. 

What we'll also cover...

At the end of the day, I want to help you to create a sustainable business, where you have a good foundation of sales, marketing and a strong plan moving forward!

Aside from “campaign in a box” and the “marketing heat map” we are going to go through a range of topics in “The NEW RULES of Marketing in 2024” with a marketing mindset and a mix of passive, active and digital marketing strategies, AI and Workflows that I have seen working for photographers around the world in 2024.

We want to create a brand where new and old clients are loyal to YOUR brand and have a positive experience along the way to become raving fans, which will help scale and grow your business.

You will walk away from this workshop with more confidence, clarity and direction to know exactly what you need to do in your business.

Plus a set game plan, and actionable items that you need to follow up on to make sure that you are going to implement the new things you have learnt. 

No more loopholes of understanding why things DO or do NOT work in your marketing plans. I’m here to support you every step of the way.

This workshop is for you if...

This workshop is 100% business and Marketing-related, without any fluff.

As always this practical, content-packed workshop, designed to give you the tools and strategies to help make better business decisions for the good of you, your family and into the future.

It will be presented by Double Master Photographer, Qualified Photography Business Coach, NLP practitioner Mark Rossetto.
