Like in 2010, I have been able to visit New York and the PhotoPlusExpo held in Javits Convention Center. The PPE is well known as the best Expo on the East Coast at that time. It´s the show were usually the imaging industry ramps up their products for the holiday season. The show was great. Not only because of the opportunity to do business with a lot of great people but also for the opportunity to meet business partners that have become friends. It is a three day, 24 hours business and networking show. But that’s what I love.
Compared to last year I had one more big advantage of my wife joining me on this trip. It gave me the big opportunity to finally show her the city I felt in love with. So of course we did add some extra time to see the sights. Beside this we also managed to get affordable tickets for a Broadway musical. Basically this is pretty easy. All you have to do is going to Times Square. Underneath the red stairs a ticket store is located that has a lot of tickets on sale. Discounts up to 50% is possible. But be prepared to stay in the line for a longer time.
We got very good ticktes for a musical called Memphis. I can tell you that it gives you more than just a great evening. It was the best musical singing I´ve ever seen. The actors did perform perfectly. Not perfectly, even better than that. If you have the chance, don´t miss to see “Memphis”.
Beside this we did all the regular touristic stuff visitors can do when the only have a couple of days available. Worth to mention for sure is the new 9/11 Memorial. It is a wonderful tribute to remember all those who died and all those who have been affected by this tragedy.
But I don´t want to bother you with too much details. So please enjoy the pictures of my trip. Further I can recommend to also see the pictures of my past trip.
