FESPA Digital which took place in Amsterdam last week saw 16,309 unique visitors attending the show, up 34 per cent since the last Digital show, which was held during a similar time period in 2012.

The visitor data showed that over 75 per cent of attendees were heavily involved in the decision making process, which was also apparent by the record number of sales being made on exhibitor stands.

“The high level of product launches witnessed on the show floor was also indicative of the importance that exhibitors place in FESPA Digital as the leading digital wide format event,” a FESPA press release said.

Mimaki launched a series of UV-LED printers and sold 52 units throughout the show, with both resellers and PSPs making purchases.

HP announced its Scitex 9000 industrial press, while EFI unveiled six new Vutek printers, including textile, LED and inkjet options.

Durst also launched its water technology dye-sublimation printer, suitable for soft signage and fabric applications, while Kornit Digital introduced two new industrial direct-to-garment printers within its Storm range.

According to FESPA, with its central location within Europe, Amsterdam proved an ideal setting to convene and expand knowledge for visitors from 120 countries, within the ever-changing digital print landscape.

With four events under one roof, visitors were able to seamlessly switch between FESPA Digital, Textile, European Sign Expo and Printeriors to uncover all of the possibilities of wide format digital print and non-printed signage.

Popular features included the Wrap Hub and the Signage Demo area, while both the Digital Textile and Printeriors conferences received positive feedback.

The Printeriors 'Print Hotel' showcase displayed the possibilities of interior décor and digital print, and its eye-catching room sets, captivated visitors and exhibitors alike.

FESPA CEO Neil Felton said, “I am delighted with the many exhibitors, who chose our event to launch their latest products and technologies.”

“And those who visited, left as true print superheroes; inspired, invigorated and excited to see where the next chapter of digital print and signage may be heading,” Felton added.

He further added by saying that the halls were buzzing with activity and feedback from both visitors and exhibitors has been overwhelmingly positive.

“Many exhibitors have declared this their best FESPA ever, with expectations greatly exceeded and I cannot wait to see what the next chapter will be in Hamburg next year,” Felton observed. (AR)
