FESPA China 2014, which took place from 19-21 November 2014, attracted 11667 individual visitors, making it the best-attended FESPA China and CSGIA event to date.
This represents an increase of 32% compared to the last CSGIA event held in Guangzhou in 2012 and a 23% increase on the first FESPA China exhibition which took place in 2013 in Shanghai.
Over the three days, attendance reached 15166, with visitors returning to the event over multiple days to see a wide range of international manufacturers and local suppliers showcasing technology and applications for screen, digital and textile print. With over 500 exhibitors, this year’s event was 30% larger than the 2013 edition, providing more screen and digital wide format solutions than ever.
This year’s event was also the most international FESPA China and CSGIA event to date, with visitors travelling from 91 countries, compared to 62 countries for the 2012 event and 76 countries for the 2013 event.
Nigel Steffens, Board Advisor, FESPA, commented, ‘It is great to see such growing interest in the FESPA China event and we’re thrilled to have expanded the event and its audience to make it the biggest FESPA China and CSGIA event to date. Feedback from exhibitors was that they met with more overseas visitors than previous years, and that the decision making calibre of visitors was high. With every FESPA event we build on past shows to ensure that we meet the requirements of today’s printers. With the number of visitors in attendance in Guangzhou, it’s clear to see that Asian printers value FESPA events as an environment to see technological developments and access educational content that will support their business growth.’
The next FESPA China exhibition, will take place from 21-23 October 2015 at the Shanghai New Int’l Expo Centre, in Shanghai, China.
