The LIA in Queensland will ‘celebrate print’ with an event on International Print Day, including a showcase of local print samples and a discussion of upcoming industry events.

The get-together will be held at Fuji Xerox’s offices at 52 Merivale Street, South Brisbane, from 5pm on Wednesday October 18. “International Print Day is something that LIA would like to support in Brisbane. It’s to encourage the industry to get together and communicate, and celebrate that print isn’t dead. They’re putting on drinks and nibblies, and we’ll tell our members what we’re up to in Queensland – it’s an opportunity to get our Queensland members together,” said Gavin Giles, president LIA Queensland.

Mel Ireland, president LIA.

The LIA is encouraging guests to bring samples of their work to the night, and will promote upcoming events including the biennial LIA Graduate of the Year awards, which will be presented as part of the Queensland PICAs on November 10. Mel Ireland, LIA president, will also be present to provide information on colour management standards and the LIA’s efforts to secure more VET school funding for print. “It’s really about promoting print in any form. We’ve opened it up to anyone who wants to come along for a networking event during the day. We’ll have some printed samples together, and we’ll be discussing what the LIA has planned over the next couple of years. The whole thing is about celebrating the print experience, because print is changing so dramatically,” Ireland said.

Those interested in attending the event should RSVP by Monday October 9 to or visit the LIA Queensland Facebook page for more information.
