Fespa will again run its Printeriors interior design showcase alongside Fespa Digital from May 8-12.
Presented in the style of a hotel, Printeriors will show how to realise the potential of print and develop new business opportunities by producing striking, cost-effective, bespoke interior décor applications, accord ing to Fespa.
Roz McGuinness, divisional director of Fespa, says, “We introduced the hotel concept at Printeriors 2016 and received fantastic feedback from visitors to the event. Being able to show how print can create interior décor applications in one environment helps visitors, whether interior designers or printers, see print’s true potential in this space.
“Printeriors 2016 only featured digitally printed applications. However, as Printeriors 2017 is co-located with Fespa 2017, our flagship global print expo, it will cover both screen and digital processes, meaning an even greater variety of applications.”
Through room sets created using a combination of screen, digital and textile print technology, visitors to Printeriors 2017 will see opportunities in the form of printed flooring, wallpaper, soft furnishings (including bed linin and curtains), ceramics, glass, mirrored surfaces, furniture and decorative textiles, all using the latest printing techniques.
McGuinness adds, “Our Dare campaign theme across all three events, was imagined to inspire businesses to look beyond their current market sectors and to explore new possibilities. Printed interior décor is an exciting new sector in the industry and we want to show the global print community how, by daring to design differently through the use of materials, inks and equipment, they can expand their opportunities. We want visitors to come to Printeriors with open eyes to explore the creativity that is possible.”
