Photo enthusiasts are expected to flock to Birmingham?s National Exhibition Centre (NEC) for the annual Focus on Imaging event, which takes place from 24-27 February.

Billed as Europe?s biggest annual imaging show, Focus will be held in Halls 9 and 10 of the NEC and feature more than 200 exhibitors.

The event gives photographers the chance to get their hands on the latest photo gear – much of it hot from its first showing at the PMA trade show in Las Vegas, United States.

The show also includes talks and seminars, enabling visitors to pick up tips on improving their photography.

Canon, for example, is hosting a series of free seminars on each day of the show, including a seminar by renowned landscape photographer Colin Prior (2.00-2.40pm on Monday 25 February).

Entry to Focus costs £6 per day. Parking at the NEC costs £8.

Last year?s event pulled in more than 32,000 visitors, according to organisers.

Doors open from 10am-6pm on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and 10am-5pm on Wednesday.
