Visitors are invited to attend daily demonstration workshops done by the specialist Avery Dennison or Mactac trainers and learn how to apply and experience the latest new innovations themselves.

Oliver Guenther, senior director, Marketing and Channel Strategy, said that more than ten all-new solutions will be presented at the show. “The year 2020 sees a new southern European venue for FESPA and some exciting new innovations from Avery Dennison and Mactac. The FESPA theme is ‘Where Colours Come Alive’, and we will be showing a huge breadth of choices across colour and digital wrapping films. Visitors will also see a full automotive portfolio that allows installers to provide everything from full wraps through to accents, window tint films and paint protection films.”

New products on display will include recently added colours and finishes for the popular Supreme Wrapping™ Film range and more new exciting expansions in our automotive solutions like paint protections films and window tinting making.

Frédéric Noël, vice president, Graphics Solutions Europe says, “We’ll be showing our very best at the IFEMA Exhibition Centre, with materials that can address a huge range of different applications. The innovations that we are introducing in 2020 help to make Avery Dennison and Mactac portfolios the go-to destinations for installers, whether they are working with vehicles, signage, advertising or buildings. ”

FESPA is a valuable show for us, giving us the chance not only to help installers find new business opportunities but also to find out what our customers want next. Our research and development is targeted very closely on what the market needs and what can make installers thrive.” Avery Dennison and Mactac will be at stand 5-D35, IFEMA Exhibition Centre, Madrid, from 24-27 March 2020.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels 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. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
