Discover an Explosion of Possibilities

FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 returns to Messe Munich, Germany, enabling visitors to see an Explosion of Possibilities across speciality print come to life.

Thousands of visitors are expected to travel to the Bavarian capital next week (14th-17th May 2019) to attend FESPA 2019 to see the latest innovations from more than 700 exhibitors who will be highlighting technologies and consumables for digital wide format, screenprinting, textile printing and garment decoration and non-printed signage.

Visitors to FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 will also have free access to European Sign Expo, the dedicated event for non-printed signage and visual communications. Visitors to European Sign Expo will be able to discover the latest products from over 100 exhibitors showcasing solutions for channel lettering, illuminated signage, neon and LED, sign systems, engraving and etching and dimensional signage.

The exhibition is established as the sector’s leading platform for launching innovations and a number of exhibitors have already confirmed plans to introduce new products at the 2019 event. Announcements made to date include HP’s first products for textile printing with the new Stitch S series of dye-sublimation printers, and swissQprint’s first roll-to-roll printer, Karibu. In addition, it is expected that many more exclusive launches will be announced during the event.

Alongside the two co-located exhibitions, visitors can participate in a range of free event features where they will discover new possibilities for their businesses through educational content and live technology and workflow demonstrations.

FESPA’s newest visitor feature, Colour L*A*B* (Stand K70, Hall B4), helps visitors to improve colour management practices in their print businesses.
