Print has long been considered a man’s domain, but Heidelberg has been active in giving credit and encouragement to the women of the industry.

First launched this year, Women in Print, a networking forum to support and recognise females’ contribution to printing, has been warmly received.

"The printing community has been very positive," said Glenn Plummer, general manager, marketing and product placement. "The inaugural events attracted more than 300 women and we hope to double this for 2008. With Bluestar Printing Group and GEON coming on with Heidelberg as major sponsors along with Print Super, Adobe and Fuji Xerox Australia associate sponsors this reflects the profile Women in Print has."

Shelley Gare (pictured) has been chosen as guest speaker for next year’s events. Gare is an editor, writer and columnist with 30 years of media experience in publications such as Good Weekend, Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian and The Sunday Times.

Women in Print will be held on the following dates:

Wednesday 5 March 2008

Thursday 6 March 2008

Wednesday 12 March 2008

Thursday 13 March 2008

Friday 14 March 2008
