The well attended event brought together a myriad of individuals; entrepreneurs, artists, professionals and novice alike, to witness and experience eye-catching and colorful displays as everyone's senses were treated to the latest in graphics technology. As always, our team came with full force with our team of experts eager to provide live demos and answer all queries.

It was refreshing to meet and discuss with such creative minds from various industries with the common thread of graphic design and execution under one roof. The 3 day expo was definitely a learning experience for all. For the potential clients who were assisted by our in house artists and technicians, and for the team as well who really listened to each client and discovered new and exciting ways the machines could be used for.
This year's theme was DESIGN MATTERS, Your creativity can change the world, and indeed we are thankful that in our own little way, Big Pix helps bring forward and propel the graphics industry by providing the machines to make creative visions a reality.
