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.

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.

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)
