Importance of live shows
Head of FESPA Global Print Expo, Michael Ryan comments: “It’s so motivating to have such a strong vote of confidence from the supplier community for FESPA and our power to reinvigorate the speciality print industry after the challenges of the last two years. Suppliers who joined us in Amsterdam in October 2021 were reminded of the unique value of live events and the commercial advantage of connecting with customers and prospects face-to-face, so we’re delighted that many more exhibitors will reap these benefits in 2022. Now that businesses are back up and running and senior decision-makers are looking to secure their future investments, the importance of live shows to accelerate recovery has never been more significant.”
European Sign Expo 2022
European Sign Expo 2022 will be co-located with FESPA Global Print Expo. The event will reunite key signage professionals with companies specialising in channel lettering, digital signage, dimensional signage, engraving and etching, illuminated displays, out of home media, LED, outdoor systems, laser cutters and sign tools. Platinum Sponsor EFKA will return to European Sign Expo alongside confirmed exhibiting companies including: Art Neon Lighting, Cosign, dap, Domino Sign, Harmuth, NEX LINE SRL, SolaAir, and vhf camfacture.
Christoph Gamper, CEO & Co-owner, Durst Group AG comments: “All signs point to FESPA 2022 meeting a weakened COVID scenario, and we can finally talk business again. But it’s no longer about unchecked “wild growth” but solutions for a more sustainable world. Print can be an essential part of this, and FESPA is a fixed point in the universe of print. In this respect, experiencing print in motion means new, sustainable business models for our customers and us. We are looking forward to FESPA, to Berlin, and above all, to finally seeing customers “live” again and demonstrating new ways and possibilities.“
Kevin Jenner, European Marketing Manager, Fujifilm Wide Format Inkjet Systems comments: “Having not attended any major exhibitions since before the pandemic, FESPA 2022 is happening at the perfect time for Fujifilm. In 2021 we unveiled our ‘new blueprint for wide format’ with two new Acuity presses built with a completely new look, a new level of functionality and enhanced ROI. FESPA 2022 provides us with the perfect platform to reveal the exciting next phase of machines in this expanding range.”
