The doors to FESPA Global Print Expo and European Sign Expo 2021, Europe’s leading exhibitions for speciality print and signage, will open tomorrow (12 – 15 October 2021 at the RAI, Amsterdam, The Netherlands). For the first time since Spring 2019, FESPA is welcoming its communities of print service providers and sign makers back to a live event, with a focus on bringing colour back after 18 extraordinary months for these industries.
FESPA will also bring Innovation back. Visitors will have the chance to see the latest innovations from a range of suppliers highlighting technologies and consumables for digital wide format, screen and textile printing, garment decoration and signage. Many exhibitors have shared major product announcements ahead of the show. To date, these include an all-new flagship inkjet printer from Agfa; a new flatbed printer from Durst; a series of releases from Mimaki; and more.
Visitors can also visit the co-located European Sign Expo (Hall 2) to see developments in channel lettering, digital signage, dimensional signage, engraving and etching, illuminated displays, out of home media, LED and sign solutions. European Sign Expo 2021 is sponsored by EFKA, LEDIT and Vivalyte.
Printeriors (Stand 6-A1) will once again inspire visitors with a collection of bespoke interior décor applications ranging from soft furnishings and accessories, all the way through to tabletop films, window treatments and wallcoverings. FESPA has teamed up with several exhibitors and their suppliers, including Chromaluxe, EFKA, Pongs, Premier Digital Textiles and Vivalyte who have contributed applications to the display.
A visitor favourite, World Wrap Masters Europe 2021 takes centre stage in Hall 1 (Stand 1-E160) and visitors will have the chance to watch the European leg of the vehicle wrap competition. For visitors considering vehicle wrapping as a diversification path, free daily demonstrations and workshops with wrap experts will also take place.
This year, for participants who are unable to attend the events due to ongoing travel restrictions, FESPA will livestream a series of interviews with leading suppliers and FESPA members, to offer a flavour of the event. The livestream will be available from 12th October for the first three days of the show at www.fespaglobalprintexpo.com under the “FESPA Live” tab.
