Not hard to spend A$10,000 on a PacPrint stand, and now it's enough to qualify for a government rebate.
Australia's 50 per cent cost rebate scheme has been extended to smaller companies, including those taking part in PacPrint and its related Visual Impact The threshold is half that previously for the Business Events Grants scheme, part of the post-COVID recovery package.
Deadline for grant applications has also been extended, until June 30, though exhibitors have been encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
All costs associated with exhibiting are covered, except staff salaries.
PacPrint is set for September 28-October 1 at Melbourne Exhibition Centre, and may be the world's first physical print show since the height of the pandemic. It's not clear whether Australia's international borders will have been reopened by then.
