International screen, digital and textile printing manufacturers are said to be lining up for this year’s Fespa Global Print Expo, which takes place from 12 to 15 October 2021 at the RAI exhibition centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. After 18 months hosting virtual product launches and demos, suppliers are enthusiastic about connecting with customers and prospects face-to-face.

The organizer’s press release says that print service providers and signmakers will be able to see the latest innovations in screen and digital printing, consumables, workflow, and colour management solutions from over 300 industry suppliers.

At Fespa Global Print Expo, visitors will be able to see hardware solutions from confirmed Gold sponsors Brother and Mimaki, as well as suppliers including Agfa, Canon, Durst, Fujifilm, Han Glory and Roland DG; substrates from 3A, Ahlstrom Munksjö, Avery Dennison, Hexis and Re-board Technology AB; automation, workflow and colour management solutions from Barbieri Electronic, Inedit, OneVision, ONYX Graphics and Print Factory; and consumables from CHT Germany, Easy Inks Gmbh and Sun Chemical.

European Sign Expo, the leading European exhibition for non-printed signage, will again be co-located with Fespa Global Print Expo. The event, which takes place in hall 2 at the RAI, will connect signage professionals with companies specialising in channel lettering, digital signage, dimensional signage, engraving and etching, illuminated displays, out of home media, LED and sign tools. The event is supported by the European Sign Federation and Gold Sponsors EFKA and LEDIT YAKI will return to European Sign Expo alongside confirmed exhibiting companies including: Art Neon Lighting, Domino Sign, Led Frames, LG Hausys Europe, NEX LINE SRL and Yellotools.

Harold Klaren, International Sales Manager, EFKA, comments, “Fespa Global Print Expo and European Sign Expo both play an essential role in connecting us with our audience. The events enable us to meet with over 50% of our existing customers under one roof as well as networking with wide format printers and signmakers that we, otherwise, would not have the opportunity to connect with. That’s why we see them as being the most important exhibitions for EFKA and we’re excited to meet everyone again in Amsterdam this year.”

Neil Felton, CEO of Fespa comments: “The past year has been challenging for all and, while virtual events such as Fespa Innovations and Trends enable the speciality print community to stay up-to-date and access new product launches, suppliers are keen to interact with printers and signmakers in a live setting. Across the industry, we’re seeing signs of recovery and regeneration and we believe October is a good time to look to the future and focus on new revenue streams and application opportunities.”

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
