It’s just one week until the doors of the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre open for Visual Impact 2024, with organisers encouraging business owners from around Queensland and beyond the borders to ‘connect with success’ under Brisbane’s sunny skies.


The industry’s leading show for sign, display, print and graphics will run from 17 – 19 July, showcasing solutions for signage and displays, wide-format, textile and garment printing, LED and illumination, fabrication, routing, engraving and laser cutting, software and workflows.

The benefits of trade shows are well-established, with the opportunity to see and experience all the latest technologies, compare solutions under one roof, and connect with the organisations and people who can help advise you on future directions and investments. Charly Blades, Events Manager for show organisers, Visual Connections, says all this, and more, will be on offer to visitors in Brisbane.

“This show will be one of the most comprehensive we’ve staged in Brisbane, and the response has been excellent with well over 2000 industry professionals expected to attend over the three days,” she reports, saying registrations are ‘flooding in’ in the usual, last-minute rush.

While visitors to the Brisbane show are, as expected, coming largely from Queensland, northern New South Wales and the Northern Territory, there are registrations from New Zealand and other surrounding nations, and a sizeable contingent from ‘down south’, with Queensland’s warmer weather proving an incentive for those in cooler climes to make the trip.

“Pre-registrations are in line with our expectations, and the number is growing fast each day as people confirm their intentions and start to plan their visit – and we have assembled some handy, online resources to help them make the most of every minute,” Charly says.

As well as a floorplan of the show, this includes a comprehensive Visitor Guide with information on each of the companies exhibiting, links to accommodation deals and transport information, and dining and activity suggestions.

“There is a busy program of short, focused presentations in our new Connections Centre, so you can download the program for that to help plan your days, and find out more information about things like the Try-A-Trade activities, and the Channel Lettering Workshops being run by Lettertech and BounceLED, which are proving incredibly popular,” Charly says, adding that Women in Print will also be holding a networking event at 4.30pm on the Thursday afternoon.

“As an extra incentive, Visual Connections will be offering Visual Impact visitors free parking on the Thursday and Friday afternoon of the show. Just enter the BCEC carpark between 1-3pm on either day and present your ticket to the Customer Service desk at the show, and we’ll provide you with a free parking pass,” she adds.

Visual Impact Brisbane will run from next Wednesday 17 July to Friday 19 July at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre at South Bank. Roland DG is Platinum Sponsor of the show, joined by Avery Dennison, Epson, Graphic Art Mart, HP, Spicers and Trotec as Gold Sponsors.
