In his opening keynote, Haim Levit, general manager HP Indigo, said the week would show the world's largest graphic arts community how print businesses have been reinventing themselves through the pandemic, and how obstacles have become opportunities.
While acknowledging many were "tired of webinars", Hain nonetheless promised print people taking part in the week would "benefit from the opportunity to learn from each other", and said, "even in the past year, technology and community have enabled print businesses to move forward".
Sydney print business Clark Murphy Print featured on Tuesday afternoon, with Benn Murphy giving a tour of the factory, which over recent years has diversified from offset into digital, wide format, labels and packaging as well. Murphy shared how the business had grown from an offset printer into now also producing digital, wide format and labels. He also shared how the company had initiatives such as Build a Desk and Fan n the Stand, which helped it through Covid.
