FESPA Eurasia 2019, taking place from 5 to 8 December 2019 at IFM Expo Istanbul, Turkey, will offer visitors a vibrant exhibition packed with innovations from more than 250 exhibiting brands. The 2019 edition is expected to be 30% larger than its earlier edition in December 2018. It will accommodate 20 more exhibitors, providing the region’s specialty print community with a substantial showcase of technologies and consumables for screen, digital and textile print.

Now in its seventh year, FESPA Eurasia continues to gain momentum in the regional market. A total of 112 exhibiting companies will participate in FESPA Eurasia 2019 for the first time, giving returning visitors access to an expanded choice of suppliers and even more solutions to explore.

Neil Felton, chief executive officer, FESPA, said, “Demand from exhibitors for space at FESPA Eurasia has been exceptional this year, supported by the hard work undertaken by our Turkish National Association partner ARED to develop the event. The market’s response has been so positive that it has been necessary to make use of the reception hall area at IFM Expo to expand the floor plan. Visitors can look forward to the most comprehensive exhibitor line-up.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
