Fespa has announced the seminar programme for its major show taking place in Hamburg from May 8-12.
Visitors can attend the seminar programme free of charge with a valid Fespa 2017 entry ticket. The programme covers a range of topics, focusing on the use of digital, screen, and textile print technology in a variety of scenarios.
Duncan MacOwan, head of events and new media at Fespa, says, “This year, we have consolidated our educational offering into one main seminar theatre. The theatre, located on the show floor, will address the needs of visitors to Fespa 2017, European Sign Expo and Printeriors. Consolidating the theatres also means that visitors can plan their visit to Fespa efficiently and do not have to worry about missing out on valuable content due to clashes.”
Sessions include: How to create a great retail experience by Mal MacGowan, owner of McGowans Print; A Designers’ creative journey to market by Debbie McKeegan, creative director at Digetex ; and New measurement method of light emission, Ralph Hug, engineer with Swiss Association VWP.
McOwan adds, “Providing a unique knowledge sharing hub, the Fespa 2017 seminar programme allows like-minded industry professionals to gain access to and discuss a mix of technical and business knowledge, ensuring individuals have the tools to take their print business to the next level.
“Covering topics from direct-to-garment and promotional products to industrial inkjet and business solutions, the programme is specifically tailored to the needs of attendees, delivering professional insight that can help to shape and transform industry practice moving forward.
The World Wrap Masters Series will host wrappers from around the world competing to win the title of World Wrap Master. To begin, the competition will see 36 wrappers battle it out to be crowned European Wrap Master 2017. The winner and runner-up will then go on to participate in the final, taking place on Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 May, where they will be joined by regional and national winners from past Wrap Masters events.
During the Wrap Masters final, the wrappers will wrap a speedboat, with the final design created by the winner of Fespa’s Wrap Design Competition, which runs ahead of the exhibition
