Online registration has opened for Visual Impact Sydney 2017 and organiser Visual Connections Australia predicts a strong turnout for the show, expecting around 4000 visitors.

Taking place at the new International Convention Centre at Sydney’s Darling Harbour, it the Melbourne show, which co-located with PacPrint 2017.’

Organisers believe this show will have a similarly positive atmosphere. Peter Harper, general manager for trade shows and publications at Visual Connections, says, “We’re delighted to be back in the heart of the Harbour City after a few years out at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park, and we think industry professionals from around Sydney and Australia will also appreciate the convenience of this fantastic new venue.’

He adds that it provides an opportunity for those who couldn’t make it to Melbourne to catch up with the latest technology and services, and for those in the sign, display and wide format markets to attend a more focused show with tailored displays and associated events.

He says, “Visitors to VI Sydney can look forward to seeing new products and services from close to 100 exhibitors, spanning a wide range of industry sectors, from sign and display, to wide format and sublimation print, engraving and routing, and even vinyl fabrication.

“Many leading names have already confirmed major stands at the show, including Celmac, Trotec, AVS, Jetmark, Biesse, Starleaton, HP/Neopost, Mimaki, Yello Tools, Roland, Orafol, Graphic Art Mart, Multicam, Mutoh and Kiwo, and we are delighted to be working with them, and a variety of smaller suppliers, to provide a truly comprehensive and exciting display.

As well as the exhibitors themselves, the show will have a strong education focus, with a programme of interactive workshops. Organiosres have locked in expert sessions on colour management; LED and laser technologies; sublimation and other print techniques; airbrushing and traditional sign skills; and the ever popular car wrapping demos.

Harper adds, “With such a stellar line-up of exhibitors and these extra opportunities and drawcards, there’s no doubt this will be a great show and we’re confident that industry professionals will respond by turning up in their droves.”

The show will run from October 11-13.
