Fespa Digital 2014 which will be held in Munich, next year May is already almost 5% bigger than the last Fespa Digital event, held in Barcelona in 2012. Nearly a third of exhibitors are set to increase the size of their stand compared to that event, and 23% of contracted exhibitors are newcomers to Fespa.
In line with Fespa’s recent World Wide Survey, which highlighted printers’ growing appetite for new finishing technology and increased spend on media and inks, Fespa Digital 2014 is seeing a large increase in exhibitors in this space, including Elitron, Esko, Fotoba and Zund. Media and substrates company Orafol has also confirmed a stand, citing the success of Fespa 2013 in London as a factor in the decision.
Managing director of Fespa, Neil Felton, said, ‘The wide-format community’s support for Fespa as an organisation and exhibition organiser is phenomenal. The fact that nearly a quarter of the Fespa Digital 2014 floorplan is filled with companies who have never exhibited at Fespa before is brilliant news, because it means that even regular visitors to Fespa are guaranteed to pick up fresh perspectives and innovations. Coupled with our world-class educational features, Fespa Digital 2014 will be unmissable.’
EFI, Flexa, KIP, Kaspar Papir, MS, Multicam, POD/MTEX, Print Equipment, Reflectiv, Shenzhen Handtop and Texo Trade Services are among those that will showcase wide-format innovations at Fespa Digital 2014.
