Our sister magazine, Picture Business, has teamed with the Wireless & Imaging Business Owners Consortium on a series of Retailer Success Summits behind held in various cities around the U.S. The next two stops are Tampa (March 26) and Las Vegas (March 31).

With the focus on imaging retailers getting sharper all the time at the International CES Show the Wireless Business Owners Consortium (WiBOC) is holding an event on Jan. 7 that continues the trend. WiBOC’s Retailers Success Summit will run from 1-6 p.m. at the MGM Grand and offers retailers, “the pro-active steps they must take now to grow their business in 2009.”

How has digital technology changed, and how will it continue to change, consumer behavior with regard to photography? What effect will the social networking phenomenon have on the imaging industry and on the various ways consumers share and communicate with their images? How will consumers manage their growing image collections in the future? What technologies will make those images more actionable? How can imaging retailers best position themselves to service their customers as these new trends emerge?
