Live FESPA virtual event will help attendees get fit for recovery
FESPA is introducing FIT – FESPA Innovations and Trends, a new series of live virtual events aimed at helping sign and print companies to plan effectively for their business recovery.

The new interactive live online events are each themed around a particular area of technology and applications, thus providing visitors with a focused environment in which to engage with new products and explore trends. The first two events in the series will take place in May and June 2021 and are as follows:

 Wide Format: 26th-27th May 2021

Focussing on wide-format graphics and the evolving printed décor market, this event will showcase innovations from a range of leading technology, software and substrate suppliers.

The second FIT event focuses on the textile printing and garment decoration sector, covering direct-to-garment (DTG), screenprinting, software and materials.

Gold sponsors include: B-FLEX, which will showcase its growing heat transfer vinyl portfolio; EFI Reggiani, which will introduce its integrated offering for digital textile production; Gemini CAD, which will highlight its software solutions for fashion designers, manufacturers and e-commerce brands; Kornit Digital, which will be presenting the latest Kornit HD industrial DTG printers; Polyprint, which will show its DTG & Direct-to-fabric (DTF) printers and pre-treatment machines; PrintFactory, which will be unveiling its suite of textile software tools; Roland, which will introduce a new compact DTG printer; and ROQ, which will be showing its latest innovations in automatic screenprinting and hybrid printing.

Other exhibitors include technology suppliers INO, Klieverik, Lotus Holland, Melco, Pigment.Inc, Sport PrintLab, Vastex, plus customised software solution provider Zakeke, and transfer film producer COVEME.

Each FIT event will feature a minimum of 16 exhibitors presenting their products and solutions. Visitors will have open access to virtual demonstrations, exhibitor insights and Q&A sessions. Participants can see the full event programme in advance to plan their time, and the online platform makes it easy to join live chats, network via video chat, and schedule timed meetings.

FESPA FIT events are free to attend for visitors, but numbers are capped to manage the quality of the interactive experience for printers and suppliers alike.

FESPA CEO Neil Felton explained: “Spring is here, and businesses are increasingly focused on their plans for re-invigoration after this hugely challenging year. To plan investments and make informed decisions, companies need to be able to see new products, discover technological developments, and access expert advice on products, applications and avenues for diversification and development.

“Speaking to companies operating across our communities it’s clear that – while their strong preference is to do all of this in a live event setting – there’s a pressing need to access information in a time-efficient way. They want the opportunity to ask questions, take advice, interact with suppliers and nurture relationships with like-minded entrepreneurs. By launching the FIT series of virtual events, we’re supporting our community in the most effective way available until we can meet in the real world again at a FESPA live exhibition.”

The events will take place on the digital event hosting platform that was used for the virtual FESPA Global Summit, which took place in January 2021, providing an accessible and easy-to-navigate environment.
