Wex Open Days
Grand opening - Birmingham
Friday 31st January – Saturday 1st February, 10:00am – 4:00pm
Join Wex Photo Video and special guests as we cut the ribbon on our brand new premises in Birmingham. Located just next door from the old store, our new Birmingham premises will give us loads more room to stock even more photo and video gear, as well as a place to hold exciting events like exhibitions, talks, workshops and more. So come and help us celebrate!
We’re really excited to announce that a few special guests will be joining us to help open the new store. Professional animal photographer Tim Flach will be cutting the ribbon on the new premises, and he’ll also be signing copies of his books and giving a talk all about his photography and his experience in the industry. Fashion photographer Hanina Pinnick will also be dropping in to share some of her insights gained throughout her career. More guests will be announced soon, so stay tuned.
We’ll also have plenty of giveaways and offers running throughout both days, so you definitely won’t want to miss out. These will include show-only deals, where you’ll be able to make some fantastic savings on cameras, lenses, accessories and more. We’ll also have live product demos of the latest kit, special prize draws, experts from the major photo and video brands on hand to answer all your technical questions, and a free sensor clean on offer for all customers.
So drop in on Friday 31st January or Saturday 1st February and help us celebrate our brand new home in Birmingham!
