Photography Trade Show Calendar for 2020 and early 2021 [updated]

Welcome to the Trade Show Calendar, a post that tracks camera and photography related trade shows, covering 2014.Q4 to early 2021, in reverse chronological order… This is not intended to be a comprehensive listing of every photography-related trade show on the planet, only the major/influential shows… For omissions/additions and corrections, please leave a comment or use the online contact form

Latest Update: April 6 (2020): All trade shows are subject to change/cancellation as of the time of writing due to the COVID-19 situation… Some shows moved to the Fall of 2020, others to 2021/2022, while others have TBD dates… As a result, the calendar is more jumpy than usual… Trade shows that don’t have confirmed dates have “??-??” as their date… SPE (every March) goes to a different city every year… CES changed their website to a .tech…
