I wonder what contributors expect from the Mexpo. ::)

A good party ;-)

Ok, this one is a good reason :-)

On the more serious side - meeting people and networking (as business cliche as that sounds) and sharing and listening to ideas is one of the bigger things I get out of conferences like this.

On the other serious side, for about U$ 638 plus costs of travel and accommodation for those who do not live in Berlin, I'd better do it (meeting people and networking) right here in MG, for free.  Here is the best place to "meeting" people and network. Thank you Leaf for that.
:)

May not be right but from the point of view of the contributor, what's the point in paying so much? The vast majority of microstock contributors even ever got the value of the registration fee.

Lee, might be better if you had planned to charge a small fee for watching the live event. Even if not actually live but with delay that allowed us to follow the event. This would be great and would be an option for many of us. And the event would have far greater impact.

Good idea!

Like last year. I'm quite certain they plan to release videos that you can pay to see of all the sessions and events after the weekend is over.

Will be charged the same $90? As a viewer I find this an exorbitant amount. Even more for not being live! But if I have to wait 01 week I can wait a little longer and get free information on the Internet that are useful to me.

Surely if the value was less than the U$20 the audience would be much higher. Remember: we are not talking about a live show! There are several live attractions which the pay per view ticket, costs less than half the amount charged for the replay of this small event.

Perhaps, the agencies could sponsor free distribution on YouTube. That would be a good strategy to publicize their commodities. If they invest so much in this war on google etc. .. why not spend a few more pennies and do something nice for the contributors.

Otherwise it seems that all came together to to suck the blood of contributors in every possible way!

We are going to be there! We will be presenting, giving out goodies and enjoying the presence of so much talent!

Looking forward to the weekend! Thanks to Amos and Lee for the great work!

Microstock Expo is aimed at professional-level microstockers for whom the ticket price is not an issue.  We considered making a more beginner-level event, but we didn't think it would work.  If anyone thinks otherwise and thinks they can make a go of it, they will have our support. 

We're filming the event again, and the price will be similar to last time.  The price is high because it's REALLY expensive to create the videos - we will not profit from them this time either.  We have no interest in live streaming - the information isn't so time sensitive and the extra cost is prohibitive.  We're also not trying to "have an impact".  We're just putting on the best show we can for a particular segment of the industry.

I hope you can understand.  Microstock Expo isn't for everyone.  If it seems too expensive, then with all love and respect, it's not for you.

Strewth! Yuri's put quite a bit of weight on hasn't he? Maybe 'professionals eat like professionals' too.

Have to take a rain check. Last time was great, and I wish we would've been able to attend, this year, too. Client stuff is keeping me away. Wish all of you who will be going a great time!
