FESPA Digital 2016 which will be held in Amsterdam from March 8-11, 2016 will be the tenth anniversary edition of FESPA's digital-focused exhibition.

According to a FESPA press release, this will reflect the astonishing development and diversification of digital print in the intervening decade.

FESPA Digital 2016 will be the year's most focused event for speciality printers, embracing signage and graphics, digitally printed textiles and decorative applications.

The 2016 edition will cover the largest floor space of any event in the Digital show's history, with 450 exhibitors occupying 42,000 sq. metres over seven halls at the RAI Exhibition Centre.

“This represents a growth of 159 per cent from the very first edition in 2006,” the organisers of FESPA informed.

Over ten years, the event has blossomed from a modest launch exhibition to a content-rich, market leading event that offers the visitor Europe's most comprehensive showcase of digital wide format print technology.

“Today, this is combined with the chance to explore digital textile exhibits under the FESPA Textile banner, to understand opportunities in signage at the co-located European Sign Expo,” it stated.

Roz McGuinness, divisional director at FESPA said, “Back in 2005, FESPA had the vision and foresight to recognise how digital wide format technology would revolutionise the speciality print world.”

“The event was launched in 2006 to give printers a focused forum in which to explore these then-revolutionary technologies,” he too added.

“Fast forward to 2016, and the change we have witnessed has been seismic as the market for digital wide format production technologies and the scope has developed far beyond expectations,” McGuinness noted.

New exhibitors continue to join the FESPA Digital line-up, reflecting the dynamism of the market and recognising the event's place as the leading launch platform for digital wide format innovations.

Ricoh is one of these new additions to the exhibitor portfolio for 2016 and who will be showcasing its latest software and hardware technologies.

Huib Kolen, manager business development at Ricoh Nedherland said, “We have taken the initiative to exhibit at FESPA Digital 2016 look forward to introducing our products and networking with customers.”

Other first-time exhibitors for FESPA Digital 2016 include: AT Graphix, ATS Colore Digital, CWT Tools, Ex-cel Plastics, FH-Union UK, Impronta Gadget, Luscher Tschudi, Provis and Pals Print. (AR)
