The expo is expected to draw thousands of visitors to witness immense possibilities across speciality print sector. Visitors to FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 will also have access to European Sign Expo, the dedicated event for non-printed signage and visual communications. Visitors to European Sign Expo will be able to discover the latest products from over 100 exhibitors showcasing solutions for channel lettering, illuminated signage, neon and LED, sign systems, engraving and etching and dimensional signage.

FESPA Global Print Expo is the sector’s leading platform for launching innovations. Announcements include HP’s first products for textile printing with the new Stitch S series of dye-sublimation printers, and swissQprint’s first roll-to-roll printer, Karibu. Many more exclusive launches are expected to be announced during the event.

FESPA’s newest visitor feature, Colour L*A*B*, helps visitors to improve colour management practices in their print businesses. The interactive showcase will offer visitors an end-to-end overview of the individual elements that contribute to good colour management, including technologies from suppliers such as Barbieri, CMA Imaging, EFI, Eizo, HP, Just Normlicht, Pantone, Techkon and X-Rite. Visitors to Colour L*A*B* can also attend daily expert conference sessions and join guided tours by Paul Sherfield, Laurel Brunner and Paul Lindström, providing more detail on the technology on show.

The expo will showcase Printeriors, FESPA’s interior décor showcase, which highlights the opportunities of print for interior décor. Within the feature, visitors can discover applications from a range of suppliers including Adobe, Canon, Mad Chair, Mimaki, Mitwill Textiles, Offthewallcoverings, Printfab, and Rex Frame. For the first time in 2019, Printeriors will also feature exterior décor applications displayed in the outside hospitality areas of the Messe, showcasing the extensive scope of printed decoration.

Returning in 2019 in an enhanced format is Print Make Wear, FESPA’s microfactory fashion feature, which demonstrates the full fashion production process from creation and preparation to production and presentation. Expert guided tours of Print Make Wear will be given by FESPA’s technical support manager, Graeme Richardson-Locke and textile ambassador, Debbie McKeegan, who will give visitors explanations of the technologies and steps involved in the process supported by daily ‘fireside chats’ and catwalk shows.

Visitors looking for inspiration from the latest trends in speciality print should visit the FESPA Trend Theatre, which offers daily seminars and panel discussions on key market areas. A total of 38 sessions will take place across the four days, delivering insights on a host of prominent and current talking points.

There will also be FESPA’s World Wrap Masters vehicle wrapping competition with two competitions - the European Wrap Master Competition, and the World Wrap Masters Final. The competitions, will be complemented by daily training workshops and demonstrations, hosted by wrap expert and head judge, Kiss Lajos.

Roz Guarnori, exhibitions director at FESPA comments: “We’re thrilled to be welcoming the global print community to Munich next week. Product innovation and the search for new technology and diversification opportunities are always high on the agenda for visitors to FESPA events and with the preview information we’ve seen from exhibitors to date, we’re certain visitors will have plenty to explore to grow their businesses, enhanced by the opportunity to network face to face with the best speciality printers from all over the world.” (SV)
