After a successful inaugural FESPA Africa 2014, the textile printing show returns in 2015 with the theme of 'Ignite Your Print Potential'.

FESPA Africa 2015 aims to attract a wider array of exhibitors and cutting-edge technology, in addition to a variety of educational seminars to spark ideas that can be transferred to any print business.

The trade show organisers are set to enhance the 2015 edition to ensure a larger, more comprehensive event for the regional community.

FESPA Africa 2015 will take place from July 22-24, July 2015 at Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa.

According to Dyelan Copeland, organiser of FESPA Africa, they are already on way to creating a bigger event with over 4,470 square metres of space already booked.

A large number of leading brands that will showcase their latest products include platinum sponsors, Roland and Avery Dennison.

Other exhibitors include, Agfa Graphics, Antalis, Epson, Fujifilm, Mimaki, Nutec Digital, Optimus, Pantone, Tulip Inks and Trotec SA, as well as distributors of Adobe, Anajet, Arlon, Brother, Canon, CorelDRAW, Hewlett Packard, Kip, Mutoh, Nazdar, Océ, Seiko, SwissQprint, Vista System and Zünd, amongst others.

FESPA Africa 2014 saw an 11 per cent hike of attendees from outside South Africa compared to Sign Africa 2013.

Attracting visitors from nearly 40 countries, the top five international countries represented were Botswana, Mozambique, Nigeria, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Additional activities to boost the visitor experience at the 2015 edition include, engaging with new related markets to widen the scope of the expo and create suitable feature content for these sectors.

Marketing manager at FESPA, Lorraine Harrow said, “FESPA Africa 2014 was a great launch event, gaining positive feedback from both exhibitors and visitors.”

“We want to continually improve our exhibitions to serve the needs of the regional print community and by analysing last year’s event, we have developed a targeted plan to deliver a bigger and better exhibition next year,” she added.

Garment printing guru, Charlie Taublieb's t-shirt printing corner was a major hit at the 2014 event and looking at the popularity of the technology seminars, FESPA Africa is extending the number of sessions and variety of content. (AR)
