Rising power prices and the lack of apprenticeship training will be on the agenda at the Tasmanian Printers Convention on Friday.

PIAA CEO Andrew Macaulay will be a guest speaker at the event that runs from 9am to 2.30pm on Friday 8th December at the Ross Convention Centre, 15 Church Street, Ross, TAS 7209.

Macaulay was part of a delegation from Printing Industries that travelled to Canberra last week to seek immediate help for printers facing massive power bills that have already caused some staff lay-offs.

Other speakers at the event will include Robert Black from Holmesglen TAFE, Peter Clark – the director of PIAA Tasmania – and Printing Industries national workplace relations manager Paul Mitchell.

The official agenda includes: The challenges facing Tasmania printers; PIAA and the ACCC; Apprentice training in Tasmania; Navigating industrial relations; National and state print awards; and Book printing in Australia – the way forward.
