Visual Impact Image Expo 2024

Between 17th and 19th of May, Visual Impact Exhibitions in collaboration with Image Expo will be hosting hundreds of participants for its bi-annual Visual Impact Image Expo exhibitions. This trade show event gathers Visual Graphics professionals from all over Australia to showcase some of the best and recent innovations in the industry.

The expo affords attendees the chance to discover new products, link up with top suppliers, network with like-minded people, and discover recent technologies. This year’s event will occur at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Australia. Here’s what to expect should you be attending.

What Is Visual Impact?

The Visual Impact Image Expo, previously Sign Expo, offers an exhibition opportunity for individuals and businesses dealing in various visual graphics innovations. Sydney holds an exhibition once every year, while locations like Victoria and Queensland host bi-annual exhibitions, drawing hundreds of professionals and digital printing enthusiasts. 

These events are the perfect place to showcase the latest developments and innovations and how buyers can use them in their businesses and homes.

Ben Carrol, an exhibitor from last year’s event, says, “It is always a highlight of the year to participate in industry events like the Visual Impact Sydney show. Not only does it give us a chance to network with colleagues, but it’s an invaluable opportunity to gain insight into the latest innovations and developments in the print world.” 

Visual Impact Exhibitions Proud History

The Visual Impact Trade Shows started in the 1990s as an initiative of a group of supply companies. The profit-making nature of trade shows in the day left these companies with no choice but to birth a new initiative.

Some months later, guided by David Saunders and with the support of the owners of three bigger suppliers in the group, the Sign Suppliers Association, previously the Visual Industries Suppliers Association, was formed.

Since the 2005 merging of Visual Impact and Image Expo, the initiative has provided a great platform for visitors and exhibitors in the digital printing space. From a member strength of 6 when it was founded, this association has grown to more than 100 in 2012, and it runs arguably the best trade shows across Australia.

What to Expect at Visual Impact Expo 2024

Visitors preparing to attend the 2024 edition of the Visual Impact Image Expo should expect an insightful, educative, and vibrant showcase of the best and latest innovations in the visual graphics landscape. 

Last year, almost 4,000 people attended the exhibitions, 936 of whom were proud exhibitors of their signage and visual graphics products. This year’s expo will be held from July 17th to 19th, with trading hours from 9 am to 5 pm daily. The Friday schedule closes an hour earlier, at 4 pm. 

Visitors have two stressless and simple options when registering online for the expo. You can either fill out a registration form online and bring the email confirmation to the expo ground, which will give you your badge, or you can register onsite when you arrive.

Registration and attendance at the Visual Impact Image Expo are free for visitors. Once the event begins, if you can’t make it on day one, you can come whenever you can, but be sure to hold onto your badge for entrance and identification. International visitors may require Visas to enter Australia, but if applications are made in advance at their country’s Australian Consulate, they have no problems being at the expo site.
