The audited results released this week confirm the fall-off in numbers with this year’s show attracting 19,543 visitors, showing around a nine per cent drop in the number of total visits. However, if the numbers were down the quality stood up with CEOs, company owners and managers accounting for 43 per cent of visitors.

Most of the visitors came from Victoria (13,637 – 69.8 per cent) with NSW supplying the largest interstate showing (2,640 – 13.5 per cent). A total of 729 New Zealanders made the journey over the Tasman.

The large showing of designers at PacPrint is taken by organizers to demonstrate the changing face of the industry, but it appears that the traditional manufacturing sectors still dominate with very few (550) of the designers identifying themselves as working in web production.

The five-day show could have been shorter with over half (54 per cent) of the visitors turning up on Wednesday and Thursday.
