Exhibition highlights

“Launching new features is always stimulating and itʼs great to see how these evolve and to see visitor reactions to these initiatives,” says Roz. “Colour L*A*B* is a particularly exciting development as it cements our growing reputation as a forum for knowledge- sharing and is part of FESPAʼs larger commitment to colour management. Following such a successful launch for Print Make Wear in 2018, Iʼm looking forward to see how the feature develops this year,” she continues.

In addition, an exterior element has been added to Printeriors, showcasing exterior applications in the outdoor spaces at Messe Munich, which provides a completely new angle for the feature. Roz adds: “Most exciting is that FESPA is a platform for technology innovation and I personally canʼt wait to hear about the new products that will debut at FESPA 2019 and to see the impact these technology and media innovations will have on the market.”

With only a few weeks until FESPA opens its doors to the world again, Roz says the exhibition is looking forward to returning to Munich. “Itʼs a favourite host city, with both our visitors and exhibitors. With so much to see at FESPA Global Print Expo, we suggest visitors spend more than one day at the exhibition to ensure they make the most out of their visit,” she concludes.
