FESPA 2015 attracted more visitors than ever before
FESPA 2015 drew its largest total audience ever, with 43,775 visitors flocking to the Koelnmesse over the five days of the show, representing an increase of 17 percent when compared with the previous flagship FESPA event held in London in 2013.
The combined event attracted 23,137 individual (unique) visitors, with the majority electing to stay at the show for more than one day, resulting in the highest ever revisit rate for any FESPA event. This reflects the increased scope of FESPA’s Global Expo in terms of exhibiting companies and educational content, which motivated visitors to extend their visit beyond one day to take in all the product innovations and educational opportunities.
The event played host to more than 750 exhibitors under four distinct event brands: FESPA 2015 (screen, digital and textile printing); FESPA Fabric (garment printing and decoration); European Sign Expo (non-printed signage) and Printeriors (printed interior décor).
FESPA 2015 Global Expo also offered visitors an Educational Hub, Sign Hub, Wrap Cup Masters vehicle wrapping area, 3D and Industrial Print Showcases, plus a gallery of FESPA Award entries, and the new Printeriors conference featuring speakers from the interior design and architectural communities.
An increased emphasis on textile applications – including soft signage, interior décor applications and garment printing – was notable throughout the halls of FESPA 2015 Global Expo, which was reinforced by the publication of the six directional trends emerging from FESPA’s global Print Census, one of which was the rise of textile applications as a means of diversification for print companies
FESPA CEO Neil Felton commented: “This was the most colourful, and comprehensive FESPA event we have ever delivered, and the record attendance is an unmistakable signal of the renewed energy, optimism and engagement of our global community of suppliers and service providers.”
