From the press release

Bruce Livingstone Set to Keynote Global Microstock Expo Where Top Contributors Expand Their Business Revenues and Knowledge

Tickets Now on Sale for 2013 Conference in Berlin, Expanded to Include Video and Illustration Tracks

BERLIN, Germany
: April 23, 2013 Tickets are now available for Microstock Expo 2013,
with expanded tracks focused on video and illustration as well as photos,
powerful masterclasses and abundant networking opportunities with industry
leaders, vendors and service providers. The weekend kicks off with a special
keynote by industry pioneer Bruce Livingstone, founder of iStockphoto and CEO of
the newly minted stock cooperative, Stocksy. In addition, there will be plenty of
opportunity to produce your own high-end stock photos and footage in fully
produced shoots with models, sets and stylists. Microstock Expo will also soon
solicit nominations for the first ever MEXPO awards, recognizing both the serious
and hilarious in the microstock world.
As the microstock industry enters its second decade, several seismic shifts are
happening in the art and business of stock, with very recent industry developments
such as Shutterstocks new Offset collection, and unprecedented changes in the
exclusivity landscape. The most serious professional stock contributors attend
Microstock Expo to connect with peers, discuss trends, negotiate with top vendors
and fresh startups, and investigate time-saving, creativity-boosting workflow
The Microstock Expo is the brainchild of longtime microstock insiders and analysts,
Amos Struck and Lee Torrens. Thanks to sponsorship by Shutterstock,
Depositphotos and ProImageExperts, the Expo returns to Berlin, Germany on
November 16 and 17, at the andels hotel, with an optional PhotoWalk on
November 15. Hundreds of professional microstock artists and agency leaders in
video, photo and illustration from across the globe will make connections, add
revenue streams to their businesses and discuss key ways the microstock industry
can continue to evolve.

Early bird tickets are
249 + 19% VAT, until June 1st, when they increase to 299.

The andels hotel offers a rate of
99, including breakfast and in-room Internet.
Lunches are included with the conference passes.
The schedule, speakers and
sessions will be regularly updated on as November draws closer.

Why Attend?
At the last Expo, I physically distributed my portfolio to seven new agencies,
increasing my revenue practically overnight, deepened relationships with great
global stock contributors and key vendors, and found more service vendor
partnerships that streamlined my workflow and saved me money, said Andres
Rodriguez, one of the worlds top-selling microstock contributors. Microstock Expo
is enjoyable and engaging, and in my opinion, a powerful investment if you are truly
committed to the business of microstock.
This intimate program is an elite mastermind opportunity for the most serious
contributors in the space, allowing attendees the rare opportunity to make
meaningful impressions and connections with other compelling artists and the most
influential industry agencies.
Microstock Expo features:
Unique presentations from top authorities on increasing revenue and improving skills,
Educational panel presentations from the best experts in the microstock marketplace,
Masterclasses and portfolio reviews from luminaries in video, photo and illustration,
A dynamic exhibit hall with some of the top vendors and service providers in our space.
MEXPO Awards in 10 categories ranging from the serious to hilarious in stock,
Plenty of time to make friends, reconnect with old ones and plan your professional future

I always said mexpo .. perhaps I was in the 'wrong' camp :)  em-expo is too much work! :)

But yes, looking forward to it as well.  It'll be great to see more of the program get fleshed out.

Hi everyone,

just wanted to point out that sometimes being the early bird is not the best deal. I already booked a ticket and workshop and today I got an email from picworkflow with a 20% discount code. Maybe others will send out discounts as well, so I would suggest if you are just looking for a ticket, maybe wait a week before you book.

The workshops are expensive, but they might still get sold out, so if you are looking for a workshop, then you might have to book faster.

MSG also has a discount code.. in the first post -> MSG2013 20% as well. 

looking forward to seeing you there again cobalt.

I already booked and paid. Is there anyway the discount can be applied retroactively?

Looking forward to seeing you there as well!

I'd sent a note to Lee or Amos and ask (PM me if you need an email).  You are probably one of the first to register, you should be punished for doing so :)
