The decision not to proceed with this year's event is disappointing as there was increasing demand from the manufacturing community for this show, however, as a result of challenges arising with the venue and co-located event, which FESPA was unable to resolve to its satisfaction, unfortunately, the only course of action available is to cancel at this time.
FESPA remains committed to serving the community of speciality printers and manufacturers in China and across Asia, and will return to the region with Asia Print Expo in 2021, dates and location to be announced nearer the time. This follows the success of the recent 2019 edition of Asia Print Expo in Bangkok.
The possibility of a future FESPA return to the Chinese mainland remains under review. FESPA will also continue to work closely with its Asian member Associations to deliver knowledge-sharing and networking initiatives for the region's printers.
