FESPA Idea Profit for purposenew CMYK

FESPA’s successful worldwide events generate profits that we reinvest for the immediate benefit of the global FESPA community of printers.

There are no individual shareholders reaping the financial benefits of our success. Our ‘shareholders’ are the print service providers who attend FESPA events and who come to us and our member associations to access industry knowledge, education, inspiration and best practice.

Some of the money is used to enable FESPA to deliver world-class educational content at our global events. FESPA is developing a growing programme of regional thought-leadership Summits, and knowledge-sharing events such as conferences, congresses and seminars.
