PMA@CES is the overall presence of PMA at the 2012 International CES. As part of that presence, DIMA (Digital Imaging Marketing Association) will host its annual preshow conference at Bally’s Las Vegas January 8-9, 2012. The 2012 International CES®, which runs Tuesday, January 10 - Friday, January 13, 2012, will include PMA@CES conference sessions, the PMA@CES Exhibits plus other events, all taking place at The Venetian. This space is attached to the Sands Expo and Convention Center, but is officially considered The Venetian.
With the convergence of digital imaging and consumer electronics, PMA has decided to move the show to the International CES for several reasons:
• The traditional photo market that PMA serves has a need to look into new products and services outside the strictly photo market to offer their customers. CES is the ideal venue for such products.
• PMA@CES will bring a breadth and depth of photo-specific products and services that CES attendees would not have otherwise been able to experience.
• PMA and CES have enjoyed a close relationship over the years as this convergence has taken place, and believe now is the best time to combine our efforts to bring the ultimate event in photo to the ultimate event in consumer electronics.

PMA@CES is the place to find everything photo – all under one roof. Cameras and other devices for capturing images are here. Software, printers, and kiosks for output are here. Photo publishing products for transforming photos into cherished keepsakes (and everything imaginable in between) are here. Owners and buyers are here
PMA is creating a focused area within the 2012 International CES for digital imaging. Beginning with the 2012 International CES, products that are aimed at both the consumer and professional imaging market will now be located within one event. PMA will bring its expertise in the professional digital imaging marketplace to CES and for the first time, the complete array of digital imaging will be located together. The International CES badge will allow access to both International CES and the PMA@CES Exhibits. Registrants for the DIMA conference will automatically receive CES badge credentials.
PMA represents members in 100-plus countries, who actively contribute to the expanding $80-billion-plus imaging industry. As the industry continues to evolve, this association has grown to represent the diversity in imaging: photo retailers and processors, manufacturers, professional imaging labs, sports and event photographers, custom frame shops, and scrapbook retailers. PMA is committed to helping these segments increase their profitability and expand their consumer, professional and industrial markets. http://www.pmai.org/
