By Company press release

Canon Australia and Konica Minolta have joined the growing list of market leaders supporting PacPrint 2017 as Gold Sponsors, joining Currie Group, Graphic Art Mart, HP and Pozitive at that premium level of sponsorship.

Roland is the event’s Platinum Sponsor, while those who have pledged support as Silver Sponsors include EFI, Mimaki and Spicers.

Peter Harper, General Manager – Trade Shows & Publications for Visual Connections, which is organising PacPrint 2017, says he’s delighted to welcome Canon and Konica Minolta to this exclusive group, saying it not only demonstrates their commitment to the event and the industry in general, but underlines the unqualified market support for trade exhibitions.

“In today’s digital age we can access information very easily, but leading companies like Konica Minolta and Canon understand that nothing really surpasses the opportunity to see, touch and feel new products and technologies demonstrated under demanding show conditions, and to speak in person with the experts behind those solutions.

“That’s why we continue to see such high level of support for the exhibition from industry suppliers who return to exhibit, show after show, and why 85% of visitors in 2013 – the overwhelming majority of whom were owners, senior managers and key decision makers – rated PacPrint as a ‘must attend’ event.

“PacPrint 2017 is shaping up as a very exciting show at a pivotal time for the print, sign, display and wider graphic communications industries. The support of our sponsors is a vital part of ensuring that we can support our exhibitors and PacPrint visitors with the learning and networking opportunities which complement the exhibition to create a really valuable experience.”

PacPrint 2017 will be held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 23 – 26 May inclusive. For more information and the latest PacPrint 2017 news, go to
