In the latest episode of print's podcast, It's Been A Big Month in Print, industry insiders Wayne Robinson and Lindy Hughson analyse, assess, and interpret the major news, trends, issues and developments from June.

We start this month’s episode by reviewing the return of drupa in Dusseldorf, back for the first time in eight years. It had a 35% drop in attendance compared to the last show, with this in mind we assess the value of trade shows in today’s market. Throughout the discussion we explore the increased representation in software, automation, robotics and digitisation, and the many investments made by ANZ printing businesses in new printing equipment.

We review purchases made at the show with Reacon Group’s order of a Fujifilm JetPress 1160CF, CMYKhub’s Colorado inkjet ix3200, Easy Signs HB Indigo ABG, and Kwik Kopy Norwood’s Elitron to name a few.

Back home we assess the failures of Momento Pro, Access Print Solutions, and Graphic Print who have all called in administrators. We also explore new players in the industry, the increased demand for fast turn around onshore printing, and the unfortunate use of offshore printing by the Australian Government.

The episode wraps up by celebrating Cactus printing’s world sustainability award, and the increased representation of women in the print industry.
