The second edition of the research will delve further into the six over-arching trends to emerge from the analysis of the 2014/2015 Census, namely:
- Customer demands
- Changing product mix
- Digital technology as change enabler
- Textile print growth
- Future of sign and display
It has also incorporated additional questions on the topic of sustainability.
Continuity of key survey topics will enable FESPA to track longer-term trends, while also identifying new drivers of change and opportunity for the community.
Visitors to FESPA exhibitions throughout 2017 in Europe, Africa, Eurasia and Latin-America will also be able to complete the Print Census onsite at these events, and the survey will be openly accessible for print service providers to complete online at www.fespa.com/completemycensus.
All print service providers completing the FESPA Print Census during 2017 can enter a prize draw to win a two-night trip to the FESPA 2018 global print expo, with flights and four-star accommodation included. FESPA is also offering two runner-up prizes of an iPad mini.
