Fespa Global is heading for Spain for the first time, trying to attract a Latin American audience along with the core central European visitors. The show will show the influence of new applications for inkjet printing just as it showed the move from screen to inkjet previously.
Fespa will this year co-locate with European Sign Expo and Sportswear Pro, a new event developed around the growing capability of printing textiles using inkjet technology.
The organiser expects 600 exhibiting companies and 18,000 visitors to the four day event. The unanswered question is the extent to which exhibitors will prefer Drupa over Fespa, holding back launches for the German show or perhaps choosing to attend only the later event.
