Following was the welcoming speech of Bernd Aufderheide, CEO of Hamburg Messe and Congress, who welcomed attendees and made proud mention of the growth of PHOTOPIA and how it has evolved into a central platform for both the European and worldwide photo and imaging industry. Bernd Aufderheide also noted that PHOTOPIA 2023 marks the third year of the exclusive partnership between TIPA and the Hamburg Messe and Congress for hosting the TIPA World Awards presentation, and how he was particularly pleased at having the celebration of imaging at both the Hamburg Messe exhibition campus and throughout the city of Hamburg receive a TIPA World Award as Best Photo Event.
