FESPA has launched its visitor campaign for FESPA Global Print Expo 2020 and its co-located exhibitions, European Sign Expo 2020 and Sportswear Pro 2020, which will take place from 24 to 27 March 2020 at IFEMA – Feria de Madrid, Spain.

The campaign strapline, ‘Where Color Comes Alive,’ highlights the vibrant, creative range of print and signage applications, processes and materials that can be found at the show, and emphasizes FESPA Global Print Expo’s role as an annual hub of innovation and ideas for the wide-format graphics, industrial and textile print sectors.

“‘Where Color Comes Alive’ is a powerful theme that expresses the boundless opportunities within our industry. ‘Color’ has multiple connotations – it refers to media, inks, finishing, color management, as well as the vivid end products being created using print. I’m confident it will resonate with the whole spectrum of our visitors and exhibitors, whether their focus is on graphics, signage, décor or textile,” said Neil Felton, FESPA chief executive officer.

The year 2020 marks the return of FESPA Global Print Expo to Madrid, where the exhibition was last held in 2002. Covering five halls of the Feria de Madrid, the event is expected to host 600 exhibitors and will provide an international platform for the latest innovations that the digital wide format, screen and textile printing markets have to offer.

The event’s popular educational features include ‘Printeriors’ for interior and exterior decor, ‘Print Make Wear’ for garment printing, ‘World Wrap Masters’ for vehicle wrap, and the ‘Trend Theatre’, as well as the ‘Color L*A*B*’ color management showcase, which was first introduced at FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 in Munich.

Part of the comprehensive offering for visitors to Madrid will be European Sign Expo 2020, Europe’s largest exhibition for non-printed signage and visual communications. A dedicated showcase of technology solutions and materials for non-printed signage applications, the event offers brand owners and visual communications professionals the possibility to explore untapped opportunities beyond print, including channel lettering, engraving and etching, LED and neon signage, as well as digital signage.

Making its debut alongside FESPA Global Print Expo 2020 will be Sportswear Pro 2020, a new exhibition that capitalizes on FESPA’s roots in textile printing. Dedicated exclusively to sportswear manufacturing, Sportswear Pro will focus on the latest technologies in on-demand and customized sportswear production, bringing together suppliers of solutions for design, production and garment decoration.

“The annual flagship FESPA Global Print Expo continues to be the key destination for specialty print and signage professionals looking for the tools and inspiration to enhance their output and grow their business. In the coming months, we look forward to seeing what our exhibitors plan to launch at the show. It’s always invigorating to see the rich potential and colorful possibilities that these open up to our global print community,” Neil concluded.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
