Fespa webinars to bring together industry experts to share knowledge

Fespa coffee break webinar series

Fespa is launching a new Coffee Break webinar series bringing together industry experts to share knowledge and business advice and answer questions from printers on topics including process control, software, automation, and sustainability.

Hosted online by Fespa Technical Support Manager Graeme Richardson-Locke, the free webinar series begins on 20 October at 11 am BST, with subsequent episodes taking place every two weeks. Each webinar will last approximately 40 minutes, including a Q&A session.

Fespa is a global federation of 37 member associations for the screen printing, digital printing, and textile printing community. Fespa’s dual aim is to promote screen printing and digital imaging and to share knowledge about screen and digital printing with its members across the world, helping them to grow their businesses and learn about the latest developments in their fast growing industries.

In Fespa’s first Coffee Break, Graeme will be joined by Paul Sherfield, owner of the Missing Horse Consultancy and Toby Burnett, emea & americas director at PrintFactory. In this episode, the experts will explore the topic of “Process Control – how to set up effective color workflows to save money”. Areas covered will include how to improve your process controlled workflow; how to enhance customer files, desktop software and print viewing conditions; color management; and the importance of print quality assessment and validation.

Additional confirmed webinars include “Looking ahead and building a more sustainable business: How a sustainability audit of your business will reveal opportunities to save energy, balance your carbon and attract new customers” on 3 November, and “The benefits of software automation” on 17 November.

Graeme Richardson-Locke comments, “In the current climate, specialty printers are looking for ways to improve and automate their print processes, introduce more sustainable approaches, and diversify their offering. It can often be a challenge to find the right advice and solutions, so we’re launching the Fespa coffee break webinars to help print service providers access the insight they need to support their business decisions. The initiative is part of our Profit for Purpose program, which aims to educate and inspire printers by offering meaningful advice and giving them the knowledge they need to succeed.”

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.
