Photography & Videography Trade Show

Xposure is the largest and most significant annual photography and imaging show in the MENA region, attended by professional photographers, filmmakers, photography enthusiasts, students and educators from around the world. Xposure features dozens of educational seminars and Workshops along with Photo Walks, Master Classes, demonstrations plus a consumer trade show with leading brands showcasing thousands of the latest photographic products and services for you to touch, try and compare.

Since 2018 Xposure has expanded the content and include additional floor space for the companies that support videographers and film-makers. Additionally, Xposure offers a Side Stage arena, complimentary to trade exhibitors, to present and demonstrate their products.

International & Regional companies are welcome to contact us to discuss their requirements for Trade Show floor space and compare the options that remain available. We carefully select and balance the types of products that can be exhibited at Xposure to ensure that Trade Exhibitors enjoy a responsive and productive experience over the four days of the annual festival.

We as organisers of Xposure are passionate about photography and a highly motivated team. We are keen to support photographers at all levels and the photographic industry alike. As a nonprofit organisation, we can provide a modest space rental pricing structure so that small and medium-sized companies also have opportunities to be present at Xposure. Space rental applications will be evaluated and assessed but primarily will be offered on a first come first served basis providing the selection criteria are met.

 Side Stage

 

One of three new initiatives introduced in 2018 was the “Side-Stage” arena. This space is provided, free of charge, for use by Trade Exhibitors and Professional Photographers who want to demonstrate products in a larger space as a live stage event.

The Side Stage is fully equipped with Audio and Visual technology including a 4x3m LED screen, bench seating, podium and a technical support team.

I attended the third edition of the now annual Xposure Festival which to my knowledge has no rival in the quality and variety of exhibitions, speakers, workshops, demonstrations, plus learning opportunities and scholarships offered to young talented photographers at the beginning of their careers. Thanks to the Sharjah Government Media Bureau team behind the scenes lead by Simon Newton and Saleh Ghorbel for a wonderful four-day event.

The galleries were nice and workshops / talks were good, but Xposure was a little limited. It should be bigger and better next time, perhaps with more things to photograph and more experts on hand to share tips and tricks.

النجاح بساطة وعفوية وثقة وتفان وفريق وتخطيطعندما تزور المهرجان الدولي للتصوير والذي نظمه مركز الشارقة الإعلامي تبتهج ويدخل السرور قلبك ولكن لماذا؟ الإجابة طويلة ومتفرعة ولكن لنبدأ بها واحدة واحدة الأولى أن الشارقة المشرقة بأنوار الثقافة والفنون يليق بها مهرجان كهذا وتليق به، ويكرمنا سلطان الثقافة كل مرة باهتمامه الشخصي ويضع للمهرجان قيمة ما فوقها قيمة بافتتاحه له وحضور جانب منه. أما الثانية فهي التنوع الذي جمعه المهرجان والذي لبى رغبات الكثيرين من أهل الصورة والفن بجرعات مكثفة بلغت بِنَا مقام النشوة والرضا في محاضرات لامست القلوب والعقول وورش لبت الكثير من الطموح ولقاءات لا تفوت وأحاديث تثلج الصدر أما الثالثة ومنها وضعت عنوانا لكلماتي ومراجعتي فهي البساطة والعفوية والثقة والتفاني والتخطيط نعم التخطيط وأضيف إليها الاستثمار الأمثل للموارد أما الأمل فهو في هذا الحدث المتقن الجميل من ألفه إلى يائه وما تخبئ الأيام القادمة من مفاجآت للموسم الثاني الذي نتمنى أن يكون أعلى وأثمن من الأول أخوكم محمد مصطفى الضو رئيس البحوث والتطوير جائزة حمدان بن محمد بن راشد آلِ مكتوم الدولية للتصوير الضوئي

The event is great with a lot of activities and workshops, I would have rather see it bigger in more than just one Hall and with more companies as well. My only take is about the lighting in the photographers galleries, especially the ones with white walls in them, the lighting was so awful and so bright that I literally had to shade my eyes when entering the galleries. I hope this event gets bigger and more aware of those small details.
