Practical Publishing is gearing up for the biggest event of the year, the Africa Print Expo, taking place from 22-24 August 2012. This expo is aimed at providing business opportunities, equipment and consumables relating to the commercial and digital printing industries.

Last year’s expo in Johannesburg attracted over 6 300 visitors, making it the best attended show to date. The Expo is not only targeted at digital and commercial printers, but at entrepreneurs interested in exploring new business opportunities.

Africa Print expo sponsor, Xerox, will be showcasing the Xerox 1000 and Xerox550. Ricoh SA will headline three important products in Johannesburg, including two multifunction printers, one black and white and one colour which will be displayed alongside a projector, the full Ricoh range of which includes mobile and short throw projectors that extend document management from the printed page and single screen view. Konica Minolta South Africa will showcase digital production press award winners, its comprehensive photo book solution and innovative products. Visitors can also view print finishing solutions from Kemtek Imaging Systems, including new Duplo and Durst products which were launched at drupa in May.

Expo organisers, Practical Publishing are excited to once again host this interesting and renowned expo. We are looking forward to the expo and believe the expo will attract more visitors this year than the previous year. Local and international visitors from all over will descend upon the Sandton Convention Centre, said Charnia Yapp, Organiser of the Africa Print Expo.
