New FESPA President Christian Duyckaerts, of Belgium, outlines his plans for his presidency after receiving the chain of office from past president Yasar Guvenen of Turkey.

Christian is FESPA’s 17th President, and will be supported during his term of presidential office by Vice-President Christophe Aussenac.

Christian joined the Board of FESPA in 2002, representing the Belgian printing trade association Febelgra, where he presides over the screen and digital workgroup.

Christian is also Managing Director and founder of Retail Communicators, a visual communications specialist delivering brand retail solutions from concept and print to installation for many international household brands.

Christian was previously CEO and co-owner of two of the largest POS and outdoor print production companies in Belgium; Print&Display and GSI Printing. He started his print career at Hamiscreen after completing his graphic technology studies at TSM and the HIGRO school.

In his inaugural speech, Christian said: “My ambition is to continue the good work of my predecessors, taking FESPA forward to the next level. Our challenge is to prepare FESPA for 2020 and beyond, to exploit the area of digital transformation where our industry is facing many opportunities, not just with web-to-print but also with omnichannel solutions and many √°reas of customisation."
