After a four-day battle, Kiss Lajos from Hungary was awarded the title of World Wrap Master at FESPA Digital 2014 (20-23 May) in Munich.
 
Wrappers from around the world started competing for the title on day one of FESPA Digital 2014 – Tuesday 20 May 2014 until Friday 23 May. As part of this year’s competition, participants had to really put their wrapping skills to the test, as they not only had to wrap cars, but other objects including mannequins, speakers and bathroom objects.
 
Second and third prize went to Colin Sciberras from Malta and Robert Davidson from Ireland, respectively.
 
Duncan MacOwan, Head of New Media and Events, FESPA, comments, “Congratulations to Kiss and this year’s two runners up. The World Wrap Masters is always a crowd pleaser at our events and this year was no different. Adding the new items to wrap certainly lent a new dimension to the competition and put the skills of our wrappers to the test. Wrapping is a growing part of the wide format industry and recognising that it’s not just vehicles that can be wrapped is essential in helping the industry to grow and find new applications. 
 
“This year we also gave visitors the opportunity to try their hand at wrapping a car door in a head to head competition. We received good feedback from visitors and it was great to see people getting involved, some who have never wrapped anything before.” 
 
Michael Meyer, Folien und Zubehor who was a World Wrap Masters sponsor said of the event, “The 2014 FESPA Wrap Event - not only car wrapping - a challenge for the contestants and a magnet for the audience!”
 
Contestant Colin Sciberras, who came second in this year’s competition, comments, “It was an amazing experience participating in the World Wrap Masters competition and I want to say thanks to all those that competed and to the organisers and judges!”
