A series of events aimed at printers and other graphic professionals looking to grow and futureproof their businesses will return to Manchester next week.
Described as “a drop-in, come-and-go-as-you-like affair”, Expoganza Manchester will be held at the new 650sqm Nettl of Deansgate pop-up store from 3pm to 7pm on Wednesday (19 June).
The event is delivered by Grafenia, which employs more than 170 people in Manchester. It provides a chance to meet with fellow creatives and to talk to people from Nettl, printing.com, Brambl and Marqetspace.
Attendees can see some of their latest marketing ideas, displays and learn how to access preferred pricing on a wide range of promotional material. Experts on SEO, e-commerce and web-to-print will also be on-hand to answer questions.
Grafenia chief executive Peter Gunning said: “We’ve not had an Expoganza event in Manchester for a couple of years now but we’ve probably seen a couple of thousand creatives and printers at previous events.
“It’s a bit of a break from the format of a tradeshow. We just get together, show people a few things around different routes to market, different products they could sell, and different technology that they might be looking for. Because we do it in our own locations, we can give people refreshments and it’s an intimate, informal and relaxed environment.”
Expoganza Manchester is open to all graphic professionals including designers, printers, sign businesses, web designers and marketers. Tickets are required for entry and can be applied for at www.expoganza.uk. The promo code ‘GETMEIN’ can be used for a pair of free tickets.
Gunning said there are still spaces available, but that previous Expoganza events have reached venue capacity, so attendees should book quickly.
