Register Now and Beat the Queues!
With PrintEx11 just a week away, there’s no time to lose for those who want to make registration easy – and get the most out of their visit – say organisers, who say the show comes at a critical time for the industry.
“It is no secret that the print and graphic communications sector is facing unprecedented challenges and PrintEx11 will be a ‘lightening rod’ for innovation, solutions and ideas that will help move the industry forward,” says PrintEx11 Chairman, Mitch Mulligan.
Indeed, PrintEx is now well established as Sydney’s leading print and design exhibition and, coming only every four years, it’s a ‘must-see’ event for those in the graphic communications sector who wants to ensure business success over the next few years.
“PrintEx11 represents the best chance for at least another couple of years for Australian and New Zealand visitors to see the latest technology and advances in action,” says Mulligan.
“In today’s challenging market, it has never been more important to understand exactly what the market requires, and to be able to diversify and develop your business to meet changing requirements.
“To do that, you need information on trends and directions, you need to be able to explore options and discover the right solutions, and you need sound advice from people in the know to have confidence that the outcomes will be what you require.
“All this will be on offer at PrintEx, Sydney’s leading show for print and design. As well as more than 150 exhibitors showcasing products across all sectors of the industry, the PrintEx11 Forum Series will provide the opportunity for visitors to be educated, informed and inspired to greater things, while co-location with the Visual Impact Image Expo – the sign and display industry’s leading show – means there will be even more opportunities for PrintEx visitors to explore new markets and income streams.”
Some years, the advances on show at this type of exhibition are ‘evolutionary’, but at PrintEx11, Mulligan says, visitors will be able to witness ‘revolutionary’ change driven by the rapid technological advances we have witnessed over the past three or four years.
“Tools like web-to-print, front-end job management software and workflow technology are almost indispensible these days, while significant advances in digital print, variable data and personalisation and many new options to link print into effective, multi-channel campaigns, may well be the key to future success for many,” he points out.
“All these areas will be covered at the show, as well as complete ‘end-to-end’ print solutions, wide format and display printing, flexo, labels and packaging, finishing and embellishment, plus a range of other ancilliary equipment and innovative products for a wide range of niche applications.”
Also on offer will be the free PrintEx11 Forum Series, where topics of enormous interest and value will be explored by key industry figures and internationally-recognised experts, a fun display of Pop Art Posters from a competition run to promote PrintEx11, and the opportunity for print service providers to promote print to key target markets and customers at the “Power of Print” stand which has been assembled with the co-operation of individuals and organisations from all sectors of the industry.
“With free online registration available at www.printex.net.au there is no need for visitors to queue to enter the show – a two-minute registration process from the comfort of your office will see you walk straight through the doors of the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre,” he adds.
“Also on the website is a comprehensive list of exhibitors, including contact details and information on what they will be showing at PrintEx11, so you can plan your visit and set up meetings with key contacts, and for anyone still considering coming from interstate or overseas, the good news is that there are still a host of well-priced flights and convenient accommodation options available for Sydney, which can be accessed under the ‘Travel and Stay’ tab on the website.”
In short, says Mulligan, PrintEx11 will be well worth the visit. “We understand how busy life is and how tough it is to get away from your office, but there are not too many shows of this calibre in our region, so if you possibly can clear a few hours, or a couple of days, it’s an investment we believe it will pay real dividends,” Mulligan says.
