PacPrint 2017 Takes Shape
May 23 to May 27 2017
With just over six months to go until PacPrint 2017 opens its doors at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on 23 May next year, the region’s premier show for the print, graphic communications, sign and display industry is shaping up to be one of the most exciting and significant in recent years.
“Industry support for the event is strong, with exhibition space filling fast and new sponsors coming on board. Currie Group and Pozitive Signs & Graphic Supplies recently joined HP and Graphic Art Mart as Gold Sponsors while Spicers is now a Silver Sponsor, alongside EFI and Mimaki,” reports Peter Harper, General Manager – Trade Shows & Publications for event organisers, Visual Connections, adding that Roland is the event’s Platinum Sponsor.
“On the ground, PacPrint is shaping up as the perfect place to connect with the industry’s leading suppliers. Names including Agfa, AVS, Canon, Celmac, Currie Group, Cyber, EFI, Epson, ESKO, Flint Group, Fuji Xerox, Graphic Art Mart, HP, Jetmark, Konica Minolta, Mimaki, Multicam, Neopost, Ricoh, Roland, Screen, Spicers, Starleaton and Vivad, will demonstrate the latest technology and solutions, as well as offering ideas and inspiration to help business owners and decision makers plan for future success.
“Co-location with the Melbourne Visual Impact Expo, targeted at the sign, display and wide format print market, will further expand the options on show and provide an even more diverse range of ideas and opportunities for the broader print and graphic communications market.”
As in past years, the exhibition will be complemented by the latest iteration of the popular PacPrint Forum Series, which Harper say will tackle the ‘big issues’ as well as deliver valuable workshops and panel sessions on technology, business and market-specific topics.
“PacPrint 2017, and the co-located Visual Impact Expo, will be the best opportunity in four years for business owners and decision makers to see the latest trends and technology first-hand and connect with the people who can help them shape their businesses for the future,” Harper says.
PacPrint 2017 will be held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 23 – 26 May, 2017. While that still seems a long way away, Harper advises intending visitors to visit to block out the dates in their diaries now – and for those travelling to Melbourne for the show, to book travel and accommodation soon to take advantage of early bird deals.
