14-17 May, Munich
Fespa used to be about screen printing and display graphics. Now it is about the range of applications that can be tackled by wide format inkjet printing.
This will include a strong focus on textile printing, seen as the next great opportunity for digital printing. printing on corrugated and other forms of packaging. The exhibitors from across the world of large format print of all kinds will be supported by educational seminars and sessions, including colour management workshops for this style of digital printing.
Watch out for HP's first direct to garment inkjet press, higher speed flatbed machines and wider rollfed printers. Robotics will be key for cutting tables while applications will focus on industrial applications rather than traditional graphic arts.
