New to Printeriors this year is an outside element, located in the outside hospitality areas at Messe Munich that will demonstrate exterior décor applications. Within this area, visitors will be able to see and interact with an array of printed exterior décor applications, including deck chairs, parasols and sustainable outdoor signage solutions.
Printeriors forms part of the visitor experience at FESPA Global Print Expo, being hosted in Munich, Germany from 14-17 May 2019, and showcasing the many benefits and opportunities of using print for interior décor. Similarly to last year’s feature, Printeriors 2019 will take the form of an interactive visitor experience, demonstrating a host of interior décor applications, such as wallpaper, lightboxes, soft furnishings including curtains and cushions, table tops and sideboards, window graphics and chairs.
FESPA is working with illustrator, Jasper Goodall, on the designs for the Printeriors applications, which will be based on the elements – earth, air, fire and water – under the strapline, ‘Inspired by Nature – Powered by Print’. Having one set of designs means that there will be better cohesion and contrast between the applications printed throughout Printeriors.
Printeriors aims to connect brand owners, interior decorators, designers and architects with PSPs and manufacturers, offering them a unique showcase event to witness the possibilities of print for interior décor. Visitors inspired by the applications within Printeriors will be able to speak with the exhibitors on the show floor who can help turn interior décor ideas into reality.
Duncan MacOwan, head of events at FESPA commented, ‘Over the last few years, led by the developments in digital print technology, print has been transforming the way designers and architects work. Last year we decided to change the focus of Printeriors to an interactive feature, located in the entrance of FESPA Global Print Expo, which proved popular with both visitors and exhibitors and we’re hoping that by doing the same this year, it will make it easy for all visitors to FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 to experience. The extension of Printeriors to include an outdoor area allows us to display a comprehensive range of applications.’
Upcoming FESPA events include FESPA Africa, the region’s largest, focused exhibition for wide format digital printing, screen printing, garment decoration and textile printing, which is co-located with Sign Africa and Africa Print, the region’s leading events for the signage industry. The event is taking place from 11-13 September 2019 at Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg.
