Vistek Events

There isn’t anything you wouldn’t do or anyplace you wouldn’t go to capture the perfect image. As a serious hobbyist with aspirations to improve your craft, you’ll be glad to know there’s a store that thinks the same way.

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 with renowned photographers and brand ambassadors, on location and in our stores.
