Asia Print Expo delivers a successful event

Both visitors and exhibitors have hailed Asia Print Expo 2019, which took place in Bangkok during February, a success thus further cementing the event’s position as a leading meeting point for Asian screen, digital and textile printers and signage.

A total of 77 companies from 17 countries exhibited at Asia Print and 4,207 individual visitors travelled to the show from 54 countries. Taking into account visitors attending the event across multiple days, the show attracted a total of 4,681 visitors, an increase of eight percent compared with FESPA Asia 2018.

Visitors from the host country, Thailand, made up 80 percent of the audience. The other top ten countries were China, Korea, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines and Sri Lanka, underlining the event’s reach in the ASEAN region and beyond.

Exhibitors commented positively on the seniority and purchasing intent of visitors, reinforced by FESPA’s own visitor data, which shows that 68 percent of delegates were business owners or hold senior business positions and 83 percent of attendees were decision-makers or involved in the decision-making process.

Asia Print Expo’s conference sessions were well attended, with 540 visitors joining the 21 seminar sessions across the three days, highlighting the demand for specialist knowledge in the region. This was emphasised by that fact that 43 percent of visitors stated that their top reason for attending the exhibition was to update their industry knowledge, followed by 21 percent who said they wanted to discover new products.

The Wrap Masters Asia event took place at Asia Print Expo, with 33 contestants battling it out to be regional champion. After three action-packed days where competitors were tasked with wrapping cars and helmets using Hexis vinyl products, Rendra Angga Agung Azka from Azka Wrap, Indonesia, took the Wrap Masters Asia title. He will now go on to compete in the World Wrap Masters Series Final, which takes place at FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 from 14th-17th May in Munich, Germany.

Second and third place went to Eakkalak Tadnumtong from AkeSticker Shop and Kittisak Siriwarangkun from VR Wrap Shop respectively, both from Thailand. The competition gave the wrappers the opportunity to show off their skills, connect with fellow installers and learn new techniques.

Roz Guarnori, Exhibitions Director at FESPA, comments: “We’re delighted once again with the success of our pan-Asian exhibition in 2019. This was the first edition of the exhibition under the Asian Print Expo brand, which clearly defines the event and communicates FESPA’s sector focus. From our perspective the re-brand has contributed to an increase in total individual visitors and visitors from Thailand. Feedback from both exhibitors and visitors highlighted the importance they attach to this event, and reinforces our confidence in our proposition, both for the supplier community and for Asian printers and signmakers.For further information visit www.fespa.com
