The Africa Print Regional Expos are designed to help printers to succeed in the industry by giving visitors access to the latest technology and advice from industry experts to help them grow their businesses. Following on a successful 2014 showing, expo organisers Practical Publishing has announced the 2015 dates for the Africa Print Regional Expos.
The expos are also valuable for exhibitors, many of whom report a great return on investment and who see the event as an opportunity to build brand awareness in the region.
The entire digital print process will be showcased, featuring from sheetfed A3 machines up to wide format digital equipment and will include both suppliers and manufacturers of commercial and digital printers, finishing equipment, software, media and consumables and digital packaging.
In addition to the regional expo's being held around South Africa, visitors can also look forward to the Africa Print Expo, co-located with the FESPA Africa and Sign Africa event, being held in Johannesburg from 22-24 July 2015. The expos held at Gallagher Convention Centre from 2-4 July 2014, attracted 5460 visitors from Africa, with an 11% increase of attendees from outside South Africa compared to Africa Print 2013. The expo organisers are enhancing and adding to the event offerings to ensure an even bigger 2015 event.
