Currie Group signs up for industry virtual expo

Currie Group has joined the exhibitor list for the upcoming virtual trade show for the print, sign, display and graphic industries where it will feature with the largest presence in the four-month long 24-hour show.

The virtual trade show, which runs from May 31 until the end of September, is the first of its kind for the industry and is being organised by suppliers association, Visual Connections.

Currie Group Sales and Marketing Director Phillip Rennell says the company will use its virtual stand to showcase latest technologies and innovations from Currie Group’s market-leading partners, including HP Indigo, Scodix, OMET and Horizon.

“The show is well timed as Australia moves past the lockdown stage and into recovery mode,” Rennell said.

“While no-one really knows what the second half of this year is going to look like for businesses, there’s real hope we will be able to start moving towards a more normal business environment as restrictions start to ease.

“It’s important we keep providing people with the information they need to discern market trends, identify opportunities for their businesses, and consider new investments, so that they’re well-positioned to recover, consolidate and grow their businesses into the future.”

Plans for Currie Group’s stand are still being finalised but Rennell says it is expected to centre around product videos and demonstrations – plugging a vital gap in the absence of physical expos like Visual Impact and drupa – and education, with expert presentations and downloadable information.

The company will also take part in the virtual seminar and workshop series.

Rennell says the virtual trade show is an important part of the ‘industry eco-system’ and as such Currie Group views its participation as a statement of its support for the print and graphic communications sector.

“Expos provide a vital opportunity to connect and collaborate with our customers, colleagues and competitors, learn about new options and opportunities, and recognise and celebrate what we do,” Rennell says.

“Obviously, it will be a while before we can all get together in one physical location, but in the interim, the Virtual Trade Show will go some way to filling the need for the industry connection and dialogue which physical expos deliver so well. We welcome this innovative initiative from Visual Connections and we’re looking forward to being involved.”

The Virtual Print, Sign, Display and Graphics Trade Show will run 24 hours a day from June to September on the Visual Connections website
