The 10th anniversary edition of FESPA’s digital-focused exhibition will reflect the development and diversification of digital print in the intervening decade.
FESPA Digital 2016 will embrace signage and graphics, digitally printed textiles and decorative applications. The 2016 edition will cover the largest floor space of any event in the Digital show’s history, with 450 exhibitors occupying 42,000sq m over seven halls at the RAI Exhibition Centre, representing growth of 159% from the very first edition in 2006.
Roz McGuinness, divisional director, FESPA, said: “Back in 2005, FESPA had the vision and foresight to recognise how digital wide format technology would revolutionise the speciality print world. The event was launched in 2006 to give printers a focused forum in which to explore these then-revolutionary technologies. Fast forward to 2016, and the change we have witnessed has been seismic. The market for digital wide format production technologies and the scope of digital applications has developed far beyond the expectations that existed a decade ago, and the market’s evolution continues, as the growth and diversification of the event and its visitor audience testifies.”
First time exhibitors for FESPA Digital 2016 include: AT Graphix, ATS Colore Digital, CWT Tools, Ex-cel Plastics, FH-Union UK, Impronta Gadget, Luscher Tschudi, Provis and Pals Print and Ricoh.
