Showcasing its print product solutions, Adobe Australia will host free rolling 45-minute graphic tutorials every hour on the hour to cover the major focus areas of print.

According to Michael Stoddart, head of Creative Solutions at Adobe Asia Pacific, hourly sessions will be run for the display, print and retail marketing sectors.

“We had an excellent Sydney show in 2010 with GASAA which proved to be a valuable engagement with our traditional print providers as well as the signage and retail marketing community. This year we’re looking forward to extending this engagement with presentations that demonstrate Adobe’s offerings well beyond publication printing.

“Adobe PrintCom workshops will show how to take advantage of the tools you’ve used for years as well as show new processes and techniques that can dramatically improve your productivity,” he says.

Garry Knespal, executive officer of GASAA, says workshops will be focused on the output side of production. “Adobe has tailored thought provoking training and education to the Melbourne audience at the PrintCom Expo 2011, VIIE and Retail marketing shows. Ticket sales are now open.”
