“Vehicle wrapping is one of the most colourful attractions at our FESPA exhibitions, where we have been hosting our World Wrap Masters competition for over 10 years. With competitions on four continents, we’ve worked closely with suppliers and wrap professionals, but until now, there’s never been a focused event that serves the needs of this specific community”, explains Duncan MacOwan, Head of Marketing and Events, FESPA.

“With Wrap Fest, we want to provide a hub that plugs wrappers and detailers into the latest trends, lets them see all the product innovations from multiple suppliers in one space, gives them access to workshops and demos to refresh their skills, and shows them the opportunities that could fuel their growth.”
