Organiser of the Retail Imaging Show is calling for collaboration with the IT industry, as it becomes more entwined with the imaging market.

The show, which takes place on Friday October 22nd, is run in collaboration with Canon, Fujifilm, Sony, Panasonic, Pentax and Casio.

Simon Skinner, marketing director at Park View Media, argues these companies have an increasing amount to offer PC and IT based retailers. “The lines are becoming ever more blurred with traditional camera shops stocking more and more products like memory, LCD displays and software, whilst other areas of electronic retail are embracing the opportunities that come from the imaging sector with ever increasing enthusiasm.

“In a time where retailers are looking at opportunities to diversify their product lines, the show offers a natural step for anyone in the IT channel to explore the imaging industry, meet new suppliers, source high margin products and network in a dealer only environment.”

Organisers are giving PCR readers 50 free tickets to the show, which is sponsored by Canon, Panasonic and Hama. Email simon.s@parkviewmedia.co.uk to claim one, or go to http://www.retailimagingshow.co.uk for more information.
