FESPA returns to Amsterdam in 2016 to celebrate 10-year anniversary of Digital show

Exhibitors put host city top for its accessibility and visitor infrastructure.

FESPA today announces that FESPA Digital 2016 will mark its ten year anniversary by returning to the Amsterdam RAI from 8 – 11 March 2016. The four-day event will once again include FESPA Fabric, Printeriors and European Sign Expo.

Roz McGuinness, Divisional Director, FESPA, comments: “We are delighted to announce FESPA Digital’s return to Amsterdam – a decade after its inception there. As the first digital wide format and speciality printing event of 2016, exhibitors will maximise the opportunity to use FESPA Digital as a launchpad for digital devices that will address the wide format and speciality printing markets, including garment decoration, printed interiors and industrial.”

Over the last ten years, FESPA Digital has firmly established its role as one of the most creative and inspirational exhibition platforms within the wide format digital printing industry – not only in Europe, but around the world, attracting visitors from around 120 countries.

“After careful deliberation with all stakeholders, the decision to host FESPA Digital 2016 in Amsterdam was an easy one to make,” adds Roz. “Although we considered a number of other European cities for the 2016 show, Amsterdam was a clear favourite for FESPA and our exhibitors."

"Not only is it very accessible geographically for visitors from Benelux, Germany and Northern Europe, but Schiphol is one of the top five European airports, with routes to Europe, Asia and the Americas.”

The Amsterdam RAI has seen significant improvements since FESPA Digital was hosted there in 2009. A brand new congress centre, which is due to open later this year, along with new cafés and eateries mean a much wider choice for both exhibitors and visitors. There are also more new hotels in close proximity to the exhibition centre.

Roz concludes: “FESPA’s commitment to digital is stronger than ever as we continue to reinvest back into the exhibition and our global print community. FESPA Digital 2016 will once again celebrate the endless opportunities with digital print through industry leading exhibitors, seminars, workshops and networking opportunities. It is set to be one of the most influential wide format digital and textile print exhibitions in 2016.”
