Viva Las Vegas: Skylab's Summer Adventure

Jun 10, 2024

Summer is here, and the Skylab team is gearing up for an exciting adventure to Las Vegas for two photography conferences: the Mastering Volume Photography (MVP) Conference from June 17-19 and the School Photographers of America (SPOA) Conference from July 8-12.

Mastering Volume Photography (MVP) Conference

The MVP Conference is the premier event for education and innovation in the high-volume photography industry. For 16 years, MVP has been the go-to destination for photography studios to learn about the latest trends, technologies, and strategies. Held at the Golden Nugget Hotel, MVP offers three days of workshops, seminars, and networking opportunities made for everyone in the industry. Buy your MVP Conference tickets here!

What’s Happening at MVP?

MVP features a packed lineup of sessions covering key topics in volume photography. We’re looking forward to sessions on picture day workflows, data security, email marketing strategies, leadership development, and the latest industry trends for 2024.

We’re especially excited about “How to Leverage AI,” where Skylab’s co-founder and CEO, TJ Rak, will share his insights into the world of machine learning and its revolutionary impact on photography. TJ will delve into the fundamentals of machine learning and Skylab’s innovative use of AI, demonstrating how it can streamline your studio workflow. Don’t miss TJ’s talk on June 18th from 10:30-11:00 AM in the Bel Air room.

School Photographers of America (SPOA) Conference

With a quick turnaround from MVP, the Skylab team will head to SPOA. Held at the M Resort Spa Casino, this conference is where industry leaders from all over come together to celebrate the art of school photography.

At SPOA, we’ll be showing off Skylab Studio—a must-have for anyone in the volume photography industry. It streamlines workflows, saves time and money, and includes special features designed for school photographers, like Yearbook Proof. Secure your spot at SPOA and visit us at Booth #101 to discover how Skylab Studio can transform your workflow.

We’re looking forward to:

  • Participating in educational sessions for those in the photography and yearbook industries.
  • Engaging with peers in mastermind groups, sharing best practices and learning from one another.
  • Connecting with top industry partners and suppliers throughout the conference.
