FESPA and APS Feiras and Eventos have announced the second expansion of the FESPA Brasil 2015 exhibition. Following the success of the launch event in 2013, many exhibitors committed to their participation for the 2015 event, which spurred the exhibition to grow. With over one year until FESPA Brasil, the exhibition has increased again by 16% due to growing demand.

The growth is a result of more Brazilian manufacturers and suppliers recognising FESPA Brasil as the ideal place and opportunity to expand their presence in the visual communications, signage, screen printing, wide format digital and textile printing markets. Exhibitors value the high quality of the event and the visitors, this combined with the positive responses that have followed the 2013 edition, has resulted in previous exhibitors taking larger stands and more new companies reserving space.

With the increased floor plan, FESPA Brasil 2015 will take place during the same dates, 18-21 March 2015, as well as the same location at the Expo Centre Norte. However, to accommodate the expansion, the exhibition has moved from the Blue Hall into the White Hall.

This second phase of growth demonstrates the market’s confidence in the FESPA Brasil brand and its dedication to the community. Alexandre Keese, Director of APS Feiras and Eventos commented, ‘In addition to the great feedback from exhibitors during the show in 2013, with many of them confirming their participation for the next event, we have also had a lot of new companies approaching us to be part of the great line-up of industry brands, all looking to gain the same success the exhibitors had last year.’

Raphael Komori, Marketing Manager of DIGI+ / Nutec Digital Ink Brasil, one of FESPA Brasil 2015 exhibitors, said this is a very positive change. ‘Every change, when planned with care following all the rules and agreements previously signed, bring us benefits. FESPA planned the enlargement very well, and it will provide more comfort and more business opportunities with more visitors’. For Komori, ‘FESPA Brasil brought its concept of internationals trade shows, offering more exhibitors, information and co-related segments of visual communication.’

The event will be host to all the major industry players, as well as providing its unique proposition of high quality educational content. The International Congress will return to cover important market specific themes, and the World Wrap Masters competition will be an emotive feature again.

FESPA Group Exhibition Manager, Michael Ryan commented, ‘We are delighted with the support we have received to date in Brazil, and this further expansion ensures we can deliver a larger, more comprehensive event in 2015. Our aim is always to inspire the print community and ensure they have access to the latest innovations and industry trends. With more exhibitors and focused educational features, we are confident the show will achieve that, and attendees will be able to explore future print capabilities.’

FESPA Brasil, 18-21 March 2015, will take place in the White Hall at the Expo Centre Norte, in São Paulo. The event will be held in conjunction with ExpoPrint Digital 2015, the biggest exhibition for narrow format digital printing in Latin America.
