FESPA Aust carries on BBQ tradition in Melbourne

Over 60 enthusiastic members of Australia’s wide format print industry attended FESPA Australia’s annual BBQ at the Royal South Yarra Lawn Tennis Club in Melbourne last week.

After a tough year of long lockdowns and border closures, FESPA Australia president Nigel Davies said it was fantastic to see members of the industry again and share stories and news.

The BBQ event has now been running for over 30 years and each year seems to get bigger and better.

“It was a fantastic evening and it was especially great to see each other again and meet with people from all parts of the industry to hear their news and share their stories,” Davies said.

“Life-long friendships start at these events and it is especially rewarding that members of such a diverse community can share many things in common.”
