Photo World Asia 2009

Photo World Asia 2009

The Photo World Asia 2009 is currently being held at the Glorietta Activity Center (started last January 29 until February 4, 2009).

Went to the venue yesterday to check out if there are some new stuff to see. Sad to say though but the event seems uneventful. I’ve been to the same in the last 2 years (Photo World Manila 2007, Photo World Asia 2008) and this year’s round-up was smaller than ever.

I think the event only took half the space of the activity center and there wasn’t much activity going. Of course, the Canon booth always took the center stage (by bringing a female model for a free-for-all photoshoot). There weren’t any big discount sale though (unlike last year when I bought a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L USM).

JT PhotoWorld is still doing their annual sale there with 8% to 10% discounts on cash purchases.

    Maybe you mean JT PhotoWorld?

    As I was suggesting in my latest post, maybe the event and the participants/exhibitors were likewise hit by the recession… :D
