Fespa to run annual event

Fespa is to change its main show from a once-every-two years event to an annual show. This means that the smaller Fespa Digital event, which occurred every other year, will now be dropped.

Neil Felton, Fespa’s CEO, pointed out that the Digital event had become almost as important as the main show, adding: “Today, feedback from both visitors and exhibitors is that – as digital becomes a mature technology – they would prefer to see Fespa present one annual event, embracing both digital and analogue products and applications to reflect the diversity of their businesses.”

Effectively this means that Fespa can now cover the screen printing and textiles areas on an annual basis.

Fespa will continue to travel between different host cities for its main event in order to draw in the widest group of visitors. The next Fespa show takes place in Hamburg this May, followed by Berlin in May 2018 and Munich in May 2019.

In addition, Fespa will continue to run various regional exhibitions to cater for the developing markets.
