Screen and Wide Format show sales up 25 percent

Keywords: Digital imaging, Printing, Conferences

With still another 12 months to go before the doors open on FESPA 2005 in Munich, the organisation has confirmed that sales are 25 percent up compared to those levels taken at this point before FESPA 2002.

As a result, the Digital Hall is now almost full and the recently added fourth hall is filling up fast.

A continued interest exists among new participants who currently account for more than a quarter of all bookings, reflecting the consistent growth of the show in new sectors such as pre-press, glass and ceramics.

FESPA 2005 will also see the organisers introduce a number of initiatives to enhance the screen-printing and wide-format digital imaging event. These include a seminar programme. The seminars will take place in two purpose built theatres in halls B1 and B2. Speakers will discuss important industry topics and issues.

All seminars will be offered free of charge. There will also be a VIP programme for the first time. Exhibitors will be able to invite key clients to attend the event as VIPs, where they will be able to use the facilities of a private lounge on the exhibition floor. Commenting on the developments, Frazer Chesterman, the exhibition director, said: “To be in such a strong position at this stage is extremely encouraging and is an indication of the increased interest in FESPA. For the visitor it provides further proof that Munich from next June will be the place to find the very latest technological developments in screen and wide format printing”.

FESPA 2005 takes place in Munich (Germany) from 31 May to 4 June.
