PacPrint a show for all ‘image creators’

With the photo industry’s Digital Show exhibition now a thing of the past, labs, photo retailers and professional photographers should perhaps mark PacPrint 2017, May 23-26, Melbourne Exhibition Centre, in their diaries.

Hand-made Awagami paper will be a feature on the Starleaton stand at PacPrint.

Canon, Kayell, Nova Sublimation, Giclee Media Supplies and the newly-amalgamated Starleaton/DES are among the many exhibitors who will have something to show to those involved in photographic printing.

Starleaton will be one of the stars of the show, with a huge (483 sqm) area devoted to professional photography and fine art digital reproduction.

‘There is no dedicated photography trade show in 2017 and DES has built a very substantial following in this area with photo-art inkjet papers from Hahnemuhle, Breathing Colour, hand-made Awagami; its own-brand ChromaJet, plus Epson printers and original media,’ said Ben Eaton, CEO of the merged operation. 

‘We see an opportunity to reach out to professional image-creators, print labs, schools, colleges and TAFEs and present a comprehensive display of photo/fine art technology, media, colour management and know-how.’

He said this will expand PacPrint’s appeal even more to a new audience that covers both professionals and ‘prosumers.’ The Starleaton stand will also feature Eizo calibratable monitors, X-Rite colour measurement and profiling products plus free profiling services for users of Starleaton-supplied media.

‘Our PacPrint presence is the largest of any dedicated wide-format supplier,’ said Ben, ‘and that includes the major equipment manufacturers.’ 

Registration for PacPrint and the co-located Visual Impact signage show has opened, with a custom-labelled bottle of Wolf Blass wine going to the first 5000 registrants. Registration is free.
