The Print Files: Conversations from the PacPrint floor
PacPrint 2022 was a success, and this sentiment was voiced directly from the show floor by the 40-plus exhibitors and visitors who dropped by Print21's livestream podcast during the event, The Print Files at PacPrint, which were sponsored by Ball & Doggett. In case you missed it, here's who we spoke to.
Taking the Print21 Print Files podcast live to the showfloor was a first for our industry, and the response was resoundingly positive, with participants lining up to join the conversation. In terms of immediacy of news feed, it offered a fresh approach to delivering content, and a relatable way for our industry's professionals to share their news and views.
For four days in Melbourne the ANZ print industry got back together. With exhibits, demos, forums, parties, and face-to-face meetings, printers reconnected. Print21 was there from start to finish. The conversations below give a taste of the themes running through the show, and some of the new technology launched.
