Fespa confirms european event calendar to 2024
Fespa has confirmed the dates of the Fespa Global Print Expo and European Sign Expo for the next two years, heralding a return to two of the events’ most popular host cities and venues.
In 2023, the events will take place from 23 to 26 May at Messe Munich, Germany – previously the stage for successful Fespa exhibitions in 1999, 2005, 2010, 2014 and 2019.
The following year the exhibitions will fall in early Spring, occupying the RAI Exhibition Centre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from 19 to 22 March 2024. Amsterdam also has a very positive track record as a Fespa venue, having hosted exhibitions in 2006, 2009, 2016 and 2021.
The 2024 event will also incorporate Sportswear Pro, the dedicated event for sports and leisure garment production and decoration. The launch event was due to have taken place in March 2020 in Madrid and was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic.
Michael Ryan says: “We had gathered great momentum behind Sportswear Pro for 2020, with a strong line-up of exhibitors and a carefully curated educational programme, focused on the hot topics in garment printing, from near-shoring and just-in-time production to customisation and waste reduction. In the intervening two years, the market for sportswear and athleisure has been heavily influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic, sharpening those trends and escalating demand for more agile production and distribution models. Based on exhibitor feedback we anticipate a healthy level of interest for 2024, and are looking forward to finally realising our vision with this highly targeted event.”
