Both visitors and exhibitors are gearing up for FESPA Africa, which is set to be the biggest expo in Sub-Saharan Africa. Compared to the 2013 Sign Africa/Africa Print expo, the 2014 FESPA Africa and Africa Print combined event is 43% larger with more distributors and manufacturers confirming space. The near sold out expo will host more than 135 exhibitors who will showcase their product innovations to attendees.

The exhibition, a joint venture between FESPA and South African event organiser Practical Publishing, will incorporate Sign Africa and Visual Communications Africa shows to provide printers, sign makers and visual communications practitioners a focused event to explore the latest technologies and trends across the vibrant graphics industry.

FESPA Africa, taking place 2-4 July 2014 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in halls 1, 2 and 3 is proudly sponsored by Roland and Avery Dennison.

Leading brands who are committed to showcase their latest products include: Roland, Avery Dennison, HP, Kornit Digital, Mimaki, DTG Digital, Epson, Durst, Antalis, RISO Africa, Canon, Sharp, OKI, Evonik, Agfa, swissQprint, Océ and many more.

Neil Felton, CEO of FESPA, comments on the upcoming expo, ‘We are really excited about the event in July. We have gained such a positive response in support of FESPA Africa from the community, which is visible from the growth the event is experiencing. Africa is a fast developing market which is adopting a wide variety of technologies, and shows such as FESPA Africa will be clearly focused on delivering these opportunities to this market. We certainly want to bring something different to the region; both in terms of the variety of products on display, the educational content available on the show floor, as well as focusing on attracting visitors from neighbouring countries.’
