ClickCon | August 11-13, 2020 | Chicago, IL

Welcome to ClickCon – A photography and videography conference where the community comes together to innovate, create, and collaborate.

ClickCon is featuring some of the best speakers and educators from all over the world, over 150+ models for you to use to help build your portfolio, over 50 scenic and historic Chicago locations where you can photograph the models, themed workshops and excursions, and three days of an interactive trade show floor with prizes, top vendors and pros, themed shooting bays, and all the latest camera gear available for you to try out.

ClickCon Max | AUGUST 14, 2020 | Chicago, IL

ClickCon Max is a bonus day of excitement featuring themed excursions at some of the most famous Chicago locations around! Take one of our tour buses and join us on your choice of our themed excursions that we will bring to life with our incredible design teams led by top area artists. There is something for everyone involved in this day of adventure.

The Palmer House - Chicago

The iconic Palmer House has the most amazing atmosphere and amenities for our attendees. Best of all, this hotel is located in the middle of everything downtown Chicago has to offer (including expansive parks and dynamic cityscapes). Months of planning went into the selection of the Palmer House for this conference. We wanted a location that would allow our attendees to shoot in the rain or shine while being cozy enough to allow for high levels of interaction and openness.
