Fespa updates with three weeks to go
Wednesday, May 11, 2022
Fespa has updated on its 2022 Global Print Expo, which is now three weeks away from opening its doors at Messe Berlin, Germany.
The wide-format trade show, which is co-located with European Sign Expo and will run from 31 May to 3 June, has now signed up 340 international suppliers, including Epson, Fujifilm, HP, MHM, and M&R, all of who were not present at the 2021 outing in Amsterdam.
Covid restrictive measures on the German event industry were lifted last month, meaning that the show will go ahead without restrictions on visitor numbers or density, social distancing, or the requirement to wear face masks. All 3G regulations have also ben removed, meaning visitors no longer have to prove their vaccination status.
However, enhanced cleaning regimes and prominent hand sanitising facilities throughout the halls will be in operation at the show. Visitors will be encouraged to hold their entry badges on their phones to reduce physical touchpoints.
Head of Fespa Global Print Expo Michael Ryan said: “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.”
Features will include the new Sustainability Spotlight conference area and Associations Pavilion applications showcase, as well as the Printeriors interior decor feature and Wrap Masters vehicle wrapping event.
“Without Covid-19 restrictions and with a first-class exhibitor line-up, we can get back to delivering the full experience print and sign professionals expect from a Fespa event,” said Ryan.
“The mood in our community towards live events is buoyant and that’s mirrored in pre-registration. The vibe is good, the appetite for innovation and connection is strong, and we can’t wait to energise print’s recovery.”
