Everything from drones and 3D to the expected latest in digital, wide format, finishing, consumables - you name it it's there. If you haven't already planned your trip, our recommendation is to do it now - you won't regret it.

Federal member for Macnamara, the newly elected Josh Burns, revealed that he comes from a family of printers and packagers as he opened PacPrint 21 (2022) following two Covid-caused postponements. The vibe at the show is fantatstic and the exhibitors should be congratulated on putting on such a great expo.
Pre-registrations had a late spike according to organiser Peter Harper, with almost 6,000 names including exhibitors signing in to attend. Many more will just come and sign in at the rigistrtaion desks.
Here are just a few early images from a rapid walk-through of PacPrint. More in Thursday's newsletter.
