Registration Opens for PacPrint 2017 & Visual impact 2017

Friday, January 20, 2017

Online registration is now open for PacPrint 2017 and Visual Impact 2017 and, as an added incentive to lock in attendance early for the region’s leading print, graphic communications and signage expo, organisers are offering a free bottle of Wolf Blass wine to the first 5000 to register and attend the shows.

With just over four months to go until doors open for PacPrint and Visual Impact at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, online registration for the show has opened – and there’s a special incentive to get in early with PacPrint Gold Sponsors, HP, partnering with hosts Printing Industries and Visual Connections, to provide a unique customised bottle of Wolf Blass wine for the first 5000 registrants.

The gift, a bottle of ‘Best in Class’ wine, will feature a personalised label produced using the latest customised innovation technology from HP. They will be available for collection by eligible attendees from the company’s centrally-located stand at PacPrint.

“Print and sign professionals really need no added incentive to attend PacPrint, but we loved the idea of being able to showcase innovative print and give something a bit special to our ‘early birds’,” says Peter Harper, General Manager – Trade Shows & Publications for organisers Visual Connections.

“We think this is a   great way to kick start registrations for a show which will offer outstanding value to business owners, managers and decision makers across the diverse print and graphic communications sector.”

HP’s Jason Beckley says his company is also happy to be on board with the opportunity. “We’re very excited to be able to show every creative tool HP Indigo has to offer, all on one bottle. It really will stand out – plus it’s a great opportunity to own a truly ‘one of a kind’ bottle of great Wolf Blass wine.”

PacPrint 2017 will run from 23-26 May inclusive at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre and, together with the co-located Visual Impact Expo, is expected to attract more than 12,000 visitors from around Australia, New Zealand and the surrounding area.

“It’s never too early to register, and experience shows that those who do start early and plan their visit carefully always gain the most from their visit. For those coming to Melbourne from interstate or overseas, there can also be a real advantage in booking early to secure the best and most cost-effective travel and accommodation options,” he adds.
