With two months remaining until the doors of FESPA 2007 open on 5th June at Messe Berlin, the largest worldwide exhibition for screen and digital wide-format printing promises to be the biggest and busiest yet. The exhibition is now sold out, with over 600 vendors taking 32,000m2 of floor space, across a record 11 halls. Pre-registered visitor numbers show an increase of 25% compared to the figures for FESPA 2005, the same period before the show.
Frazer Chesterman, Managing Director of FESPA, comments: “FESPA 2007 is this year’s number one destination for anyone planning to invest in screen or digital wide format printing equipment. The event will feature the world’s leading vendors, many of whom typically use FESPA exhibitions to showcase their full range of products and solutions, not to mention brand new products. It will also provide a myriad of complementary educational opportunities via the extensive programme of showcase theatre seminars*.”
Following FESPA’s track record of serving as a global launch pad for new products, visitors to FESPA 2007 will not be disappointed. New digital product launches planned for the show include the European debut of the MacDermid ColorSpan 5400uv series of all-in-one UV inkjet printers; a brand new addition to the Rho family of flatbed inkjet printers from Durst, and the introduction of the Jeti 2030 UV TRUE flatbed printer, from Gandinnovations. Regarding new screen printing products, Servis Centrum will premier its Magra 3/4 automatic screen printing machine, and Vastex will be showing its new entry-level press, the V-1000 and the new E-1000 exposure unit, designed to bring high quality machinery to people with a limited budget.
Chesterman concludes: “We are looking forward to welcoming printers from all over Europe to what promises to be a great success, judging by the excellent exhibitor response and visitor pre-registration. The FESPA exhibition team has worked hard to ensure that FESPA 2007 will give visitors and exhibitors alike the most fulfilling and valuable FESPA exhibition experience yet”.
