Events that inspire.

At Vistek, we firmly believe there’s no end to the learning process and we admire those who seek guidance with the goal to get better. So, in addition to the many learning events we put together for our ProFusion trade show, we take great pride in presenting events throughout the year, such as live shooting events like Rockabilly Revival with Matt Barnes, as well as star-studded speaking engagements in theatre/auditorium settings, featuring renowned photographers such as Greg Gorman, Jerry Ghionis and Derek Heisler.

Our commitment to ‘learning’ takes other forms, as well. In our ongoing series of seminars we showcase a roster of experienced lecturers, those whose expertise and enthusiasm make learning a most enjoyable experience. Be advised, because most of our seminars are free to attend, they tend to fill up fast, so be sure to register well in advance. Check frequently for news and updates. Better still, sign up for eNews, and receive news as it arrives.

We have had the pleasure to host some very amazing people over the years.
