Since 2002, the 6Sight Future of Imaging Conferences have focused on the convergence of factors shaping ‘pictures as personal expression’ as one of the best growth opportunities in imaging today — and on the transformative impact of imaging technology and visual communication on every facet of society: businesses, homes, and communities.

These annual imaging technology conferences are frequently the occasion for public introductions of important imaging products and advanced imaging technologies that affect the future of imaging.

Educators, artists and executives from all sectors of the imaging industry gather to gain strategic insights and form alliances that will drive the future of imaging, as well as network with other decision makers, media, analysts and investors looking to accelerate the growth of photo imaging.

The conference previews breakthrough technologies; forecasts innovative uses; and sparks new ideas and alliances benefiting current and potential customers and partners, participating companies, and the imaging industry as a whole

6Sight was founded in 2006 by Alexis Gerard and Joe Byrd, president and vice-president respectively of Future Image, an independent center of expertise on imaging technology. The two had earlier launched and run five Mobile Imaging Summit conferences from 2002–2005 in New York, NY, Monterey, CA, and Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In 2008, the conference received an investment from PMA, the worldwide Photo Marketing Group, and its member organization AIE, the Association of Imaging Executives. The 6Sight Future of Imaging Summit conference is held in the Summer of each year in California and the 6Sight Mobile Imaging Summit is held in the Fall of each year in Lund/Malmo, Sweden.
