Next week, Fespa Global Print Expo and European Sign Expo 2022 will open at Messe Berlin, Germany, ready to set speciality print and signage businesses back in motion.

Michael Ryan, Head of Fespa Global Print Expo, comments: “Excitement is building as we get closer to the event, and the recent news that Covid restrictions have been lifted in German venues has delivered another strong surge in exhibitor interest. With 340 confirmed exhibitors, we’ll be opening a show with almost double the number of companies that were present in Amsterdam last year, so visitors can be sure of finding the products and business solutions they need to fuel their recovery and growth.”

Visitors will enjoy a comprehensive live event programme including the all-new Sustainability Spotlight conference area and Associations Pavilion applications showcase, as well as the Printeriors interior décor feature and Wrap Masters vehicle wrapping event.

Spotlight on sustainability

To enable speciality printers to make more sustainable and environmentally conscious choices for their business, Fespa will introduce its Sustainability Spotlight feature. Located in Hall 25 Stand C50, visitors can join presentations from several industry experts providing useful, informative and actionable advice around environmental best practice. Graphics producers and textile printers can also view a wide range of material samples on display and learn how to produce innovative but sustainable finished products that their customers will value.

During the event, industry experts will be hosting a series of highly informative talks on subjects including: Sustainable materials to use for graphics and textile applications; How to reduce energy consumption; Carbon footprint facilities and benchmarking; How to make supply chains more transparent; and How print professionals can avoid greenwashing.

Michael Ryan comments: “Building a successful and profitable business is every entrepreneur’s number one goal, but the print community has an obligation to sustainability too, and this is becoming a priority for print buyers. Becoming sustainable means understanding the whole operation and the opportunities and risks that need to be addressed, now and in the future. Our goal with the launch of Sustainability Spotlight is to inform the print community of the different options open to them as they progress along the path towards sustainable operations. We want to show print businesses how to meet changing customer demands, increase productivity and profitability, while making meaningful improvements to their supply chain and efforts to decarbonise.”


Celebrating talent at Fespa’s Associations Pavilion

This year’s event also sees the launch of the Associations Pavilion, celebrating the talent of Fespa’s international member community. The Pavilion gives members of Fespa’s worldwide network of Associations the opportunity to showcase their talent through samples of their screen- and digitally-printed work. Visitors to the South Entrance of the Messe Berlin are set to be inspired and learn how the diverse applications were printed and finished by members from 16 countries, including Japan, Thailand, Mexico and South Africa.

Printeriors immerses Fespa in nature

Back by popular demand, Printeriors will return to Berlin to connect brand owners, designers and architects with PSPs and manufacturers as they explore the latest trends in décor and design. Also located in the Messe’s South Entrance, the showcase will bring illustrations to life across a range of textiles, wallcoverings, furnishings, flooring, fine art, lighting and accessories.

Once again, Fespa has collaborated with illustrator Jasper Goodall whose work is being curated and developed through design, manufacturing and onto finished products by Fespa Textile Ambassador Debbie McKeegan.

Highlighting the multiple opportunities for printers in the world of interior and exterior décor, visitors will be immersed in an interactive world of flora and freshness of the natural world as they move through a collection of seven themes: Tropical Verdure; Nature’s Canopy; Opulent Lux; Aqua Mist; Surface Micro; Organic Flora; and Cacti Geos.
