The Photo Expo Will be Postponed

It is with a heavy heart that we must postpone The Photo Expo in light of the escalation of the COVID-19 Coronavirus in Ireland. Your safety, and the safety of our demonstrators and speakers, is our utmost concern and as a result we have decided it is only appropriate to postpone the event.


It is our full intention to run the event later in the year, with a tentative aim of October being the new time for the expo to take place. But as it is unclear how long the current situation will last, it is best to wait before confirming an exact new date. 


Your ticket will automatically be valid for the new date. We would hope that refund requests would be made after the new date is announced, where possible, but if you wish to receive a refund on your ticket, you can request a refund at any time by emailing info@thephotoexpo.ie


While we will be unable to process your refund immediately you will receive your money back through point of purchase when we can, as we are currently closed due to the current situation. But once you have requested a refund it will be issued when possible.

   

We will aim to keep the programme and exhibitor list the same where possible, subject to speakers and exhibitors being available for the new date.


We would like to thank you for your understanding and patience. 


Kind regards

David & Bryan

The Photo Expo
