Eurasian print service providers and sign makers are invited to let their imaginations fly at FESPA Eurasia 2016 when it returns to the CNR Expo in Istanbul, Turkey from 8-11 December 2016, for its fourth edition.
The event will cover 20000sqm across two halls of the exhibition centre, showcasing over 450 brands. Dedicated to wide format screen and digital print, textile print, garment decoration and signage, FESPA Eurasia will showcase the latest technology and applications from both international and regional manufacturers.
Confirmed exhibitors to date include Mutoh distributor, Folpa; Optimum Digital Planet for digital large format and textile printers; Pigment Reklam, distributors of swissQprint and Bullmer equipment; wide format digital print manufacturer Roland DG; digital textile distributor AIT; and Karya Tekstil, a local manufacturer of sign and textile solutions.
Visitors to FESPA Eurasia will be able to enjoy educational and interactive features, including the first World Wrap Masters to take place at FESPA Eurasia, in association with Hexis. This fast-paced competition will see the best vehicle wrappers from the Eurasian region go head-to-head to be crowned Wrap Master. There will also be a signage demonstration area, in partnership with FESPA's Turkish Association, ARED and a Digital Textile Conference to cater to the continuing growth of this market. The signage demonstration area and World Wrap Masters will both be free to attend, whereas the Digital Textile Conference will be a separate paid-for event.
Michael Ryan, Group Exhibition Manager at FESPA commented, ‘There is a lot of interest from international and regional exhibitors for FESPA Eurasia 2016. Many major international manufacturers will be present, either through direct participation or through a local distributor.
‘Last year at FESPA Eurasia 2015 we observed two notable growth trends running throughout the event – signage and textile. We saw a large number of sign manufacturers and suppliers focusing on interior and exterior signage solutions, a trend we believe will continue this year. Working with ARED, the sign association of Turkey, we will enhance our sign offering through ARED's Signage Awards and the signage demonstration area on the show floor. Textile printing is also a huge growth area in the Eurasia region and one that we expect to see heavily represented on the show floor appealing to the many regional print service providers now adopting digital textile printing. Visitors to FESPA Eurasia will be able to see an abundance of both screen and digital textile print solutions and applications. They will also have the added benefit of the Digital Textile Conference, where they will be able to hear from experts in this market sector.’
Tolga Oktay, Director of screen printing chemicals company, Feteks commented on why they are exhibiting at FESPA Eurasia: ‘FESPA Eurasia 2016 has an outstanding regional reputation and offers new opportunities for Eurasian printers. Because of this we feel it is the event to present our new products and projects to customers.’
