FESPA 2018 – ‘Where Print Takes Off’
FESPA has launched its visitor campaign for the FESPA 2018 Global Print Expo, which will take place over four days on 15th– 18th May 2018 in Berlin. The campaign strapline, ‘Where Print Takes Off’, signifies FESPA’s role as the international platform for new technology, ideas and applications across the digital wide format, screenprinting and textile printing markets.
Occupying 10 halls at Messe Berlin, which last hosted the event in 2007, FESPA 2018 Global Print Expo is one comprehensive event, devoted to digital wide format, screenprinting and textile printing. FESPA 2018 will also have an entire hall dedicated to substrates, thus reflecting the critical role played by media innovation in enabling application diversification.
FESPA expects the 2018 exhibition to feature the largest textile zone of any FESPA event to date, reflecting the market’s growing interest in soft signage, fashion and decorative textiles. FESPA 2017 already showed an increase in exhibitors showcasing textile applications, and demand continues to escalate, with two entire halls in Berlin already dedicated to textile printing at this stage.
Visitors to FESPA 2018 will also have access to European Sign Expo, FESPA’s dedicated event for non-printed signage.
The last FESPA Global Print Expo in Hamburg in 2017 attracted visitors from over 130 countries, cementing its reputation as the foremost global event for the speciality print community.
Roz Guarnori, Divisional Director, FESPA, commented: “Through the theme for the 2018 event we want to celebrate print’s rich potential to continue to evolve and develop new creative and functional capabilities. FESPA 2018 will be the place for sign and print companies to discover new ideas, inspiration and products to help their businesses take off.”
Visitors can maximise the value of their time at the show by participating in FESPA’s line-up of educational and interactive features and by joining FESPA’s dedicated peer networking events.
