Fespa CEO, Neil Felton:

“Fespa was founded with the principal aim of sharing knowledge within a global community of speciality printers. These businesses are operating against an ever-changing landscape of developing technologies and evolving customer needs. With that in mind, we’re committed to delivering a wide variety of insightful content that gives visitors an overview of the current opportunities and helps them to explore potential paths to business growth. That’s why we invest in refreshing and energising our features year on year, to ensure that our visitors get the complete experience they come to expect from Fespa events.”

Colour LAB

Following a successful debut at Fespa Global Print Expo 2019 in Munich, Colour LAB will return to the event in 2020 and will offer visitors a comprehensive overview of all individual elements that contribute towards professional colour management, such as measurement and calibration tools, lightboxes, software solutions and print output devices.

With colour management being a dominant trend in the wider print industry and “Where Colour Comes Alive” as the official strapline for Fespa Global Print Expo 2020, Colour LAB is set to be a key attraction in Madrid.

Trend Theatre

Directly adjacent to Colour LAB is the Fespa 2020 Trend Theatre, where a wide range of seminars and panel discussions will give visitors a great opportunity to increase their industry knowledge and find inspiration for new business prospects.

The Trend Theatre programme features over 40 sessions, compiled with the needs and interests of the Fespa global speciality print community at heart. With an expert speaker line-up from organisations including Fogra Research Institute, global data leaders, Keypoint Intelligence and Spanish language sessions from Fespa Espana, the programme will deliver key insights on a wide variety of topics. These will range from workflow automation and colour management to DTG printing and sustainable practices, while also providing an overview of the current market trends in all areas of specialist print.

The seminars are free to attend for anyone holding a valid Fespa Global Print Expo, European Sign Expo or Sportswear Pro entry ticket.


Printeriors is an interactive feature highlighting the multiple opportunities for printers of interior and exterior décor, connecting brand owners, designers and architects with PSPs and manufacturers.

Tying in with the show’s 2020 location, the Printeriors design will combine video and photographic imagery of the Madrid Royal Botanical Garden, providing an immersive experience for visitors. Once again, Fespa is collaborating with illustrator Jasper Goodall on the designs for the Printeriors applications, which will use a mix of sustainable fabrics and materials.

Print Make Wear

Fespa’s fast fashion factory feature is back for 2020, this time with a focus on sportswear manufacturing. Linking to the co-located Sportswear Pro event, Print Make Wear will recreate the live end-to-end production process for sports and athleisure garments, starting with planning, design and prepress, progressing to printing, drying, cutting, sewing, welding and embellishment and finishing with packing and retail display.

Neil Felton, CEO Fespa:

“Fespa in three words: global, innovative, networking. Come to Madrid and visit the show.”
