Support group for the collaboration of women in the printing industry, Women in Print (WiP) is on the lookout for new sponsors, with the programme consolidating to a nationally-driven base.
Now celebrating its tenth year, WiP was originally an initiative of Heidelberg Graphic Equipment.
Since it began, more than 2500 women in the industry have participated in the group’s regular events, with more than 350 women last year attending the five breakfast meetings held across the state capitals.
However NSW WiP patron Karen Goldsmith says the programme can only continue with industry support and is urging companies to consider becoming a major sponsor, associate or supporter in 2017.
“Corporate sponsorship enables us to engage top level speakers and to ensure the five breakfast events we hold annually maintain the high standard our delegates now expect,” Goldsmith says.
“It is not only a terrific initiative, it is also a great opportunity for sponsors to demonstrate support for the industry while getting your company’s name and message in front of some of the industry’s leading executives and professionals.”
Goldsmith this year will be joined by Jennifer Baile as state patron in Victoria, Susan Heaney as representative for Queensland, Marisa Rossi (BJ Ball) and Sandy Aspinall (Bowden Group) in South Australia and Olivia Grida from Advance Press representing Western Australia.
WiP’s next event will be a breakfast taking place at PacPrint17 on May 24.
