Around 60 members of Australia’s wide format printing industry attended an annual Fespa Australia BBQ on the banks of the Yarra in Melbourne on Wednesday evening.
The BBQ event has been running for at least 30 years and was organised by Fespa Australia president Nigel Davies and was sponsored by Esko, HVG Graphics Media, Spicers and Kissel + Wolf.
The event drew a strong crowd with all attendees having the opportunity to enjoy a sit down catered BBQ dinner and dessert by the river at the Yarra-Morrell Landing in South Yarra.
Davies said it is always wonderful to bring together the diverse industry.
“We were really happy with the turnout with people from all parts of industry attending,” Davies said.
“Life-long friendships start at these events and Fespa Australia really wants to bring back the community and fun in our diverse industry.
“It was great to see our Fespa board member Ben Isdale, an apparel decorator deep in conversation with Mick Harrold Sign Association board member and specialist sign installer. They operate in completely different parts of the industry but within minutes realized of introducing themselves found that they had many things in common in other areas of business and life.” Davies said.
The BBQ kicked off at 5.30pm and continued well past the scheduled finish time of 8.30pm until late into the evening.
