Visual Impact Sydney is set to go with the show being 95 per cent subscribed according to organisers Visual Connections, and an extra focus this year on textile printing.
Peter Harper, general manager – Trade Shows & Publications at Visual Connections says, “As in previous years, the list of exhibitors for the Sydney show includes everyone from the industry’s largest and most comprehensive names, to smaller specialist and niche suppliers, all under the one roof.
“This year, however, we will also have a significant focus on the latest innovations in screen printing, alongside more familiar offerings like wide-format, design and MIS, POP, display and expo systems, laser cutting and engraving, and structural and illuminated signage technologies.
“This is something of a departure from recent shows but textile printing is clearly a relevant area for those in the print, sign and display sector, and it makes perfect sense to expand our reach into this area.”

“This year, we are introducing daily breakfast information sessions, giving visitors a head-start on the day by enjoying a delicious and nutritious meal while taking advantage of high-quality education.
“The result is a comprehensive show combining innovation and information, to help businesses improve their performance, increase competitiveness, creates new revenue streams and plan for their future success.”
Visual Connections also says it expects to confirm topics and open registrations for sessions within the next few weeks.
The show will run from 10am-8pm Wednesday 12, from 10am until 6pm on Thursday 13, and from 10am till 4pm on Friday 14 September.
Harper says, “We are also making it easier for visitors to get to the Sydney Showground, with a morning and afternoon shuttle bus between Homebush and Darling Harbour, and extended hours on the Wednesday evening until 8pm.”
Registrations for the Visual Impact are now open, with visitors encouraged to pre-register to skip the queues and make the most of their time at the show. For more information and the latest news on VI Sydney, go to www.visualconnections.org.au
