SAN DIEGO, Jan 23, 2018 – Sony Electronics, a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the world’s largest image sensor manufacturer, has announced today that they are opening up their flagship “Kando Trip” photography experience to public applications.
The event will take place May 9-12 at beautiful oceanfront Asilomar Conference Grounds in Monterrey, CA. The four day, three night, all-inclusive experience will offer attendees a choice of over 20 interactive classes and workshops covering many different genres of photography, video storytelling, business and social media best practices, software and hardware tutorials from partner sponsors and more. Additionally, there will be shooting sessions at several iconic locations along the Monterey/Big Sur coastline, keynote speakers, product feedback sessions, contests, giveaways and many other fun activities. Throughout the event, attendees will have access to loaners and trials of all of Sony’s most popular cameras, lenses and accessories.
“‘Kando’, a term near and dear to our hearts at Sony, can be translated to ‘the power to stimulate an emotional response’, or ‘to make people say ‘Wow’’,” said Neal Manowitz, Vice President of Digital Imaging at Sony Electronics. “We are continually striving to deliver ‘Kando’ with everything that we do – every product, service, activity and campaign. ‘Kando Trip’ is the ultimate representation of this concept. It’s an event exclusively designed for our community – a chance to for us all to interact, learn and grow together, with ‘wow’ experiences waiting around every corner.”
The experience will feature a variety of classes led by many of Sony’s brand evangelists from the Artisans of Imagery and Alpha Imaging Collective programs, with a common goal of allowing attendees to develop both their photography and their careers. Throughout the event, there will also be opportunities to meet, share ideas and give feedback to Sony’s engineering, product planning, marketing, and business teams, all of which will be in attendance.
