FESPA Digital in Germany exceeds expectations
More than 18 000 visitors from across the globe flocked to the recent FESPA Digital exhibition in Hamburg, Germany to see the largest collection of digital print solutions and exhibitors.
"The show has been overwhelming to say the least. The options are virtually unlimited and the amount of digital machinery, ink technologies and fabric manufacturers have exceeded my expectations," says Potgieter.
Last year's FESPA in Munich demonstrated that digital is now the prevalent technology within the sign and display sector. This year, one of the most noticeable trends is the move toward environmentally friendly solutions, "There is a massive move over here from an environmental perspective and I foresee these trends coming our way in no time," says Potgieter.
Other show highlights include a Fabric Live! Fashion Show, FESPA Create! (a day dedicated to agencies and brands), the Digital Debate and the Digital Textile Conference.
FESPA 2011, the fourth in its series, was the biggest yet. The exhibition has grown by 70% since it began in 2006, demonstrating the dynamic growth of the wide-format print sector. As the show's tagline says, digital has taken one giant leap forward, and November1 plans to do the same by embracing the new technologies and ideas they have encountered.
