Our Pre-conference Intensives return for the 6th year and are ideally suited for those seeking extended in-depth training in an intimate, small group atmosphere. Workshops led by experienced trainers provide the ultimate learning experience for the serious entrepreneur.

This year’s Intensives are divided into three different learning tracks. Two of these Intensives include 12 hours of training over 1 ½ days, hands-on learning, and group interaction. One track will focus on business skills, and the other track will focus on photo organizing skills. 

Our third Intensive is an advanced Masterclass designed to meet the needs of our most experienced photo organizers. This exclusive Masterclass offers extended hours, additional benefits and VIP treatment in the Presidential Suite.

When you invest in an Intensive, your Conference registration is included, making this the best value for your education dollars!

*Intensive sessions are available on a first come basis and seating will be limited.
