Women in Print 2021

event history

The original Heidelberg Women in Print event took place in 2007 with 290 attendees coming to dinner and cocktail networking events across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. In the years that followed Women in Print built on the interest and enthusiasm of those first gatherings, with attendees growing to 400 in 2008. 2008 also saw Women in Print benefitting from a growth in sponsorship revenue from both large and small industry sponsors. With 2009 and 2010 also being successful years, Women in Print now features as a much anticipated event in the Australian print sector’s annual calendar.

Women in Print has spread around the world, with events held in Germany for Drupa 2008 and in the UK for Ipex 2010. In 2011 and 2012 Women in Print events sold out across the country, with nearly 500 women attending. Year on year since the events have grown in attendance and engagement and we look forward to the ongoing growth and success of Women in Print in the years to come.
