October 2017 at the IAPP Conference in Chicago, we had the grand opportunity to spend an afternoon at the newly refurbished headquarters of Panoramic Images, (also known as The Big Picture Experts) in Skokie, IL. We were treated to a great lunch, toured their facilities, saw their operation, met the staff, and as panoramic photographers, made important connections. Panoramic Images also invited other local photographers to attend that afternoon and a great and rewarding time was had by all.

Our 2017 Fall Conference was held the week of October 15th in Skokie, IL and by all accounts was an amazing success. First of all, we had beautiful weather, clear, blue, and crisp sky with very little wind. We had an enjoyable Architectural Chicago River and Harbor Tour. We spent an informative and rewarding afternoon at the Panoramic Images headquarters and saw their newly finished grand showroom. We captured sunset over Chicago on the 92nd floor of the John Hancock Tower. This is just to mention a few of the highlights.
Pictures from the event will be posted on the IAPP web site and Facebook. In the meantime, you can view some of our photos as described below.
By Jook Leong – Here is a selection of 360 panoramas from the conference (some 54 views). The KRPano viewer is on auto tour mode and each scene gets about 28 seconds before the next one loads. There are other options found on the task bar. Optimized for viewing on your mobile device. There is a VR glasses mode if you want to give that a try. http://360albums.com/iapp-chicago
