Expo organisers Practical Publishing have launched the 2013 Africa Print Expo and Roadshow dates.

The Africa Print Expo is the largest commercial and digital printing show for Africa and will take place from 21-23 August 2013 at the Sandton Convention Centre. This event will showcase the entire digital print process, featuring from sheetfed A3 machines up to Grand format digital equipment and will include both suppliers and manufacturers of commercial litho and digital printers, finishing equipment, software, media and consumables.

The expo is the gateway into Africa. Over 5850 visitors attended the 2012 expo, with more visitors, including those from all over the African continent and other international visitors, expected to attend in 2013. Practical Publishing will kick off its international marketing campaigns to attract overseas visitors early next year.

The Africa Print Roadshows give industry professionals an opportunity to see solutions in their own city.  Africa Print will aim to educate and inspire all visitors on the powerful capabilities and commercial benefits of digital print, in its entirety. Each of the Roadshows held in 2012 had a great response from visitors, with the Bloemfontein Roadshow, held for the first time in 2012, being so successful that a Roadshow will be held again in the region in 2013.
