Friday, November 18, 2011
Fespa, organiser of Fespa Asia 2011, has announced that the event held at Suntec in Singapore from 26-28 October, 2011 attracted a diverse audience from across the Asia-Pacific region, with visitors coming to the three-day event from a total of 34 countries, including India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Neil Felton, Fespa’s managing director for exhibition and events, said: "Talking to exhibitors here at Fespa Asia 2011, it’s clear that there is strong demand for an event of this calibre serving the south-east Asian marketplace." He added: "While there are several national events serving individual countries, no single exhibition in the screen and wide format digital sector brings together the whole Asian region to explore technical and service innovation and share best practice. Fespa’s pan-regional approach, our professionalism in delivering multi-faceted sector specialist events, combined with our mission to reinvest surplus revenues in education and knowledge-sharing for our member community in Asia, makes Fespa absolutely unique."
During the event, Fespa Print Pit Stop conference delivered in English, Thai and Mandarin Chinese, offered visitors a programme of free sessions covering topics including business, screen print, digital print and textile.
Duncan MacOwan, heads of events and new media at Fespa, said: "The Asian market is incredibly diverse. Rapid adoption of digital technologies and business models balanced with an ongoing passion for screen printing and traditional processes, and differing commercial and macro-economic drivers shape the concerns of print service providers from country to country. Delegates were eager to learn from our expert speakers, and the response to this content was extremely enthusiastic. The Print Pit Stop Conference proved to be an important and valuable element of Fespa Asia 2011 and paves the way for future FESPA knowledge-sharing events in Asia."
