PrintEx News: RIBBON CUT AS PRINT SHOW OPENS DOORS
PrintEx, the region’s premier printing trade show for 2019, has opened its doors at Sydney Showground this morning, alongside co-shows Visual Impact and the Label and Packaging Expo.
Running until Friday, the show floor features 120 exhibitors displaying the latest innovations in print technology. Digital printing systems, wide format printers, digital workflow solutions, and new materials are all on display, including many new-to-Australia innovations.
Alister Henskens, NSW cabinet secretary, officially cut the ribbon to open the show with hearty congratulations to the industry.
Speaking to Print21, Henskens said he was thrilled with the show and what print has to offer. “I was impressed with the number and variety of business presenting here today, and the entrepreneurial spirit of many of the presenters I’ve met. It’s great to see so many people running successful businesses where they’re trying to innovate and improve all the time, and this government supports small business and people who are employing other Australians,” he said.
Andrew Macaulay, CEO PIAA, said the show is shaping up to be a fantastic one this year.
“The diversity and the excitement in the room are incredible, there’s a buoyancy. We’re seeing some new technology, which is always good, and people buying it – I understand there’ll be some big announcements this week, which started yesterday, in fact, for a couple of suppliers.
“That’s what trade shows are about – new technology, people investing in it, and people commercialising it,” he said.
