Photographie Festival 2015



An Invite from London Drugs

Good afternoon, my name is Mike Wallbank and I am the Photo Electronics manager at the London Drugs in Coquitlam Centre. My store is hosting a large photography event on Saturday May 9th and we would love to invite the members of your group. Essentially we will have representatives in the store from Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Panasonic and London Drugs. There will be special guest speakers, and various presentations and ‘trade-show’ style booths. Please let me know if you have any questions about the event. We would also invite your club to participate in the event by offering a booth so you can show off your member’s work and sign up new members.  I have included a short blurb regarding the event:
