Exhibitors and visitors are getting ready to do face-to-face business at FESPA Global Print Expo 2021 and European Sign Expo 2021 (12-15 October, RAI, Amsterdam, The Netherlands), in light of the progressive relaxation of pandemic restrictions and re-opening of hospitality and live events.
This progress, enabled by the pace of the vaccination programme in Europe, means that the two live FESPA events can now go ahead with no restrictions on visitor numbers or density within halls and on individual exhibitor stands, and without one-way systems.
This and other positive developments such as the introduction of the EU Digital COVID Certificate and the steady relaxation of travel restrictions and quarantine requirements for travellers, are fuelling business confidence among suppliers and service providers in the specialty print community, and building excitement for the return of the sector’s first live international event since 2019.
FESPA Global Print Expo 2021 and the co-located European Sign Expo will bring together over 300 exhibiting companies over 16,000m² of exhibition space at the RAI in October. Together, they will offer print, textile and visual communications businesses a long-overdue opportunity to see the latest digital wide format, screen, textile printing and signage product innovations in real life, to touch and try technologies and materials, and to access the expert advice they need in person.
Exhibitors include 3A, Agfa, Ahlstrom Munksjö, Brother, Canon Production Printing, d.gen Inc, Durst, Kornit, M&R, Mimaki Europe, OneVision, Roland DG and STS Inks. Visitors can also enjoy a pared-back feature programme, including the popular Printeriors interior décor showcase and the Wrap Masters vehicle wrapping event.
