FESPA Eurasia 2014, taking place 4-7 December in Istanbul, will be 20% larger than the first event held last year, with last-minute confirmations still coming in.
The increased event size has been achieved through growing trust and recognition of the FESPA brand across Turkey and the region through a strong sales and marketing strategy, as well as the success of the 2013 event, during which many manufacturers signed up for FESPA Eurasia 2014 with larger stands.
FESPA Eurasia has also expanded in size with a number of first-time participants, including suppliers such as Eurotech, Canon, Kornit Digital and Yatay, as well as experiencing growth from international companies exhibiting who make up one fifth of the exhibition, like Agfa Graphics, HP and Roland.
The event's growth indicates the confidence providers are placing in FESPA Eurasia to deliver their company objectives, while also signifying that there will be a comprehensive display of equipment and product innovations for visitors to explore and build into their budget decisions for 2015.
The show will be a broad mix of technologies allowing visitors to discover new opportunities, including interior and decorative markets, 3D printing, and industrial print. Numerous leading global brands for the sector will be demonstrating a range of applications. The latest solutions for screen printing will be covered by SPS, MHM, and M&R, while digital textile printing will be well represented by producers like Reggiani, Roland, Kornit Digital, d.gen, and Mimaki, plus national distributors BTC, AIT, Future Reklam and OTS.
Michael Ryan, FESPA Group Exhibition Manager comments: "We have gained fantastic support from both the international community - which grows worldwide with FESPA exhibitions - as well as the leading players in Turkey. This is purely due to what FESPA and our partner ARED represent in the industry; as re-investors into the market, providing a quality event and the integrity in which we work with stakeholders." Ryan also emphasises the importance of the event for the industry and adds: "When you look at the line-up of exhibitors at FESPA Eurasia, you can see that it is going to be an incredible showcase of the latest technologies and solutions for regional print and signage service providers. So if your business is print or signage, FESPA Eurasia is undoubtedly a 'must attend' event for you."
