Visual Impact Brisbane looks set for success in July with visitor registrations now open.
With over 80 per cent of floor space already booked, the show promises visitors a comprehensive array of the latest technology and solutions.
The first show in the sunshine state for six years sees vendors eager to showcase their wares. Organisers say the expo’s track record of proven reach extends beyond Queensland into Northern New South Wales, the Northern Territory, and beyond Australian borders the Pacific Islands and of course, New Zealand.
The show receives support from platinum sponsor Roland DG; and gold sponsors Avery Dennison, Epson, Graphic Art Mart, HP, Spicers and Trotec.
Everything on display
Organisers say Visual Impact Brisbane has attracted a list of exhibitors representing most of the industry’s leading names, promising visitors a comprehensive display of everything from software and workflows to wide-format print, fabrication, illumination, engraving, laser cutting and more.
Charly Blades, events manager for supplier association Visual Connections which owns and organises the show, says, “There are still some excellent stands available but suppliers who want to take advantage of the opportunity will need to be quick. There are several potential exhibitors already circling many of the prime positions which remain.
“We’ve seen excellent attendances at recent shows, with industry businesses keen to see and experience the latest technologies and innovations and make major investment decisions after enduring such long breaks during the pandemic.
“Brisbane is shaping up as no exception to this. The floorplan is looking pretty full, which is great so far out from opening. We have already received our first registrations after opening bookings this week. Clearly, there are business owners who are already looking forward to taking advantage of all the opportunities available to them in Brisbane.”
She continues, “As always, the show will offer an educational element to the show. However, this year we have a focus on delivering maximum value for minimum investment of time. We call this programme ‘Expert Connections’.
“Visual Impact only runs for three days, and we know that many visitors can only afford limited time away from their businesses to attend. So, the sessions in our Connections Centre will be short, snappy, and laser-focused on the topic at hand. The assortment of topics and themes will range from economic and business updates to market trends and expert opinions, with sessions on various technologies and innovations.
“The idea is to make sure visitors can gather plenty of knowledge, insights and ideas, as well as connect with experts who can really deliver value to their business, without taking too much time away from the exhibition itself.”
Visitors will also have a chance to see the very latest innovations from exhibitors, including Roland DG, Mimaki, Elizabeth Machines, Sign Essentials, Ball & Doggett and Celmac, Currie Group, HP, Wilenco and Amari Visual.
Other suppliers planning sizeable displays include Alfex CNC, Avery Dennison, Creative Graphic Supplies, Epson, Graphic Art Mart, Multicam, Mutoh, PHE, Pozitive, Smartech, Spicers and Trotec.
Complementing these, a host of smaller displays will cover a huge range of innovations from names like Adzon, Amari Visual, Arlon, Digital FX Machinery, Eventech, Goodsense, Interone, Lettertech, M-Power Software, O’Brien Engineering, Poli-Tape, Print IQ, Pulse Laser Systems, SaLED, SAS, Stick On Signs, Thunder Laser, Velflex, Worldkougei Inc and Zoom Tec.
Visual Impact Brisbane will run from 10am to 5pm on July 17 and 18 July, and from 9am to 4pm on July 19. The venue is the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre at South Bank.
