Roz McGuinness, divisional director at Fespa, said, “We are delighted to welcome our global print community to Hamburg, at our largest ever Fespa global print expo and European Sign Expo. Our flagship Fespa in Europe has a deserved reputation as a launch platform for products that shape the development of the speciality printing sector and help PSP’s to develop creative, diverse and profitable businesses."
McGuinness said many exhibitors are introducing innovations here that will empower yet more print and sign making businesses to boost their productivity, streamline their workflow, add new services and move into lucrative new application areas. "This wealth of innovation and supplier expertise under one roof is complemented by Fespa’s continued reinvestment to provide a rich programme of free educational content that supports visitors with their business planning and investment decisions,” McGuinness added.
The Hamburg show is the largest Fespa show to date, with over 200 brands showcasing their solutions for channel lettering, illuminated signage, including LED, neon, etching, engraving, dimensional and architectural signage. About 1,000 print service providers and sign makers from around the world will be attending the show, to see the latest innovations in technology and consumables from more than 1,000 supplier brands including product launches.
The show has evolved to become the significant event for the screen and digital printing on textiles for soft signage, garments and decorative applications, with many exhibitors showcasing solutions for textile printing.
