Fespa exhibitions continue to expand in size as wide format, screen and textile printing, and garment decoration enjoy further growth across the globe.
Later this year, Fespa will run its Eurasia show, which has grown its audience numbers by 18 per cent. Based on their participation in 2016, 10 per cent of exhibitors have increased their stand space for the 2017 event.
Fespa says at the 2016 exhibition, decision makers made up 44 per cent of visitors with 81 per cent involved in the decision-making process with a collective budget of €1.6bn ($2.5bn).
Michael Ryan, group exhibition manager for Fespa, says, “The increase in stand space that we’re seeing for this year’s show emphasises exhibitors’ high regard for the Fespa Eurasia event, not only due to the number of visitors, but their seniority and purchasing authority. Receiving international trade fair status from TOBB recognises that Fespa Eurasia is transforming from a regional to an international exhibition, with many visitors from beyond Turkey travelling to attend an exhibition of this calibre.”
Sercan Yağuçmen, regional manager at Roland DG Middle East and Europe, says, “We recognise Fespa Eurasia as an important and effective event in the market and a key part of our marketing strategy. The event allows us to display and see different kinds of solutions and innovations, meet with industry professionals and generate new business leads.”
