FESPA 2017’s Seminars Provides Access To Mix Of Technical and Business Knowledge

FESPA 2017’s seminars will provide exclusive access to specialist learning opportunities with respected industry figureheads. The seminar programme aims to deliver key insights and market knowledge across the sign-making, digital, screen, industrial, textile and interior printing industries for FESPA 2017, taking place at Messe Hamburg 8-12 May.

Developed with some of the leading experts within the industry, the FESPA seminar schedule offers educational content from key note speakers, which will be delivered daily in one seminar theatre. Through inspirational content, FESPA will provide delegates with a varied schedule of bitesize seminar content created with speciality printers and sign-makers in mind.

Duncan MacOwan, head of events and new media at FESPA, commented, ‘This year we have consolidated our educational offering into one main seminar theatre. Located on the show floor, the theatre will address the needs of visitors to FESPA 2017, European Sign Expo and Printeriors. Consolidating the theatres also means that visitors can plan their visit to FESPA efficiently and do not have to worry about missing out on valuable content due to clashes.’

Sessions throughout the event will include, but are not limited to, ‘How To Create A Great Retail Experience’ by Mal MacGowan, owner, McGowans; ’Print: A Designers’ Creative Journey To Market’ by Debbie McKeegan, creative director, Digetex; ’European Sign Code of Practice’ by Luc Steegmans, owner at ELBO Signs and Technology - ESF European Sign Federation; and ‘New Measurement Method of Light Emission’ by Ralph Hug, engineer, Swiss Association VWP.

‘Providing a unique knowledge sharing hub, the FESPA 2017 seminar programme allows like-minded industry professionals to gain access to and discuss a mix of technical and business knowledge, ensuring individuals have the tools to take their print business to the next level. Covering topics from direct-to-garment and promotional products to industrial inkjet and business solutions, the programme is specifically tailored to the needs of attendees, delivering professional insight that can help to shape and transform industry practice moving forward,’ concluded MacOwan.

Upcoming FESPA events include FESPA Africa, the region’s largest, focused exhibition for the wide format digital printing, screen printing, garment decoration and textile printing, which is co-located with Sign Africa and Africa Print the region’s leading events for the signage industry.
