Over the past five years, Fespa Eurasia has grown its visitor audience by 18%, confirming it as a leading event for the wide format printing and garment decoration markets in the Eurasia region.
Fespa Eurasia 2016 attracted 8,232 individual visitors, with total attendance over the four days reaching 9,774 visits. Based on their successful participation in 2016, 10% of exhibitors have increased their stand space for the 2017 event.
The 2016 exhibition also proved to be an active buying event. 44% of visitors were final decision makers and 81% were involved in the decision-making process with a collective budget of 1.6 billion euroes.
Fespa Eurasia has been recognised in the category of ‘International Trade Fair’ by the Turkish Union of Chambers and Exchange Commodities (TOBB) due to the increase in its international visitor and exhibitor base over the last three years, demonstrating the growing reach of this event.
Michael Ryan, Group Exhibition Manager, Fespa, said, “The increase in stand space that we’re seeing for this year’s show emphasises exhibitors’ high regard for the Fespa Eurasia event, not only due to the number of visitors, but their seniority and purchasing authority. Receiving international trade fair status from TOBB recognises that Fespa Eurasia is transforming from a regional to an international exhibition, with many visitors from beyond Turkey travelling to attend an exhibition of this calibre.”
