FESPA Digital Man has started mapping his journey beyond 2013, picking Munich, Germany, as the destination for the 2014 Digital event. The dates for the 2014 event are confirmed as Tuesday 20th to Friday 23rd May.
The Munich show will follow the forthcoming Barcelona Digital exhibition (21 to 24 February 2012) and FESPA 2013 - the flagship ‘screen + digital + textile’ event - which goes to London, UK in 2013 (25 to 28 June 2013).
FESPA’s European community benefits from the fact that the shows move from city to city, making the events accessible and affordable for print service providers from different regions. For exhibiting companies, this pattern ensures that the visitor audience is constantly refreshed, connecting suppliers with diverse decision-makers and buyers year after year.
“We’re excited about returning to Munich three years from now”, comments Neil Felton, managing director of Exhibitions and Events. “It was a very successful host city for our main FESPA event in 2005 and 2010, the city has universal appeal, and the spacious and practical venue is popular with exhibitors and visitors alike.”
He continues: “FESPA has always had a strong connection to Germany, with four record-breaking events in Munich, Berlin and Hamburg over the last seven years, and a loyal base of support from German printers, including hundreds of members of BVDM, our national association.
“Southern Germany in particular delivers a strong visitor audience from throughout Germany, Austria, Switzerland and other central European countries, as well as being accessible for printers from Benelux, Italy and UK, all of which are key markets for wide format. Those factors, combined with the stability and robustness of the German economy, point to this as a good choice for our next Digital show.”
As with all FESPA events, surplus revenues from FESPA Digital 2014 will be reinvested in the wide format printer community through FESPA’s programme of educational and knowledge-sharing projects, directly and through FESPA’s national member associations.
