A broad spectrum of exhibitors set to bring colour back at FESPA Global Print Expo 2021
International screen, digital and textile printing manufacturers are lining up for this year’s FESPA Global Print Expo, which takes place from 12 – 15 October 2021 at the RAI exhibition centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
After 18 months hosting virtual product launches and demos, suppliers are enthusiastic about connecting with customers and prospects face-to-face.
Print service providers and signmakers will be able to see the latest innovations in screen and digital printing, consumables, workflow, and colour management solutions from a broad spectrum of exhibitors
At FESPA Global Print Expo, visitors will be able to see hardware solutions from confirmed Gold sponsors Brother and Mimaki, as well as suppliers including Agfa, Canon, Durst, Han Glory and Roland DG; substrates from 3A, Ahlstrom Munksjö, Hexis and Re-board Technology AB; automation, workflow and colour management solutions from Barbieri Electronic, Inedit, OneVision, ONYX Graphics and Print Factory; and consumables from CHT Germany, Easy Inks Gmbh and Sun Chemical.
European Sign Expo, the leading European exhibition for non-printed signage, will again be co-located with FESPA Global Print Expo. The event, which takes place in hall 2 at the RAI, will connect signage professionals with companies specialising in channel lettering, digital signage, dimensional signage, engraving and etching, illuminated displays, out of home media, LED and sign tools. The event is supported by the European Sign Federation and Gold Sponsors EFKA and LEDIT YAKI will return to European Sign Expo alongside confirmed exhibiting companies including: Art Neon Lighting, Domino Sign, Led Frames, LG Hausys Europe, NEX LINE SRL and Yellotools.
Harold Klaren, International Sales Manager, EFKA, comments: “FESPA Global Print Expo and European Sign Expo both play an essential role in connecting us with our audience. The events enable us to meet with over 50% of our existing customers under one roof as well as networking with wide format printers and signmakers that we, otherwise, would not have the opportunity to connect with. That’s why we see them as being the most important exhibitions for EFKA and we’re excited to meet everyone again in Amsterdam this year.”
Neil Felton, CEO of FESPA comments: “The past year has been challenging for all and, while virtual events such as FESPA Innovations and Trends enable the speciality print community to stay up-to-date and access new product launches, suppliers are keen to interact with printers and signmakers in a live setting. Across the industry, we’re seeing signs of recovery and regeneration and we believe October is a good time to look to the future and focus on new revenue streams and application opportunities.”

Process Control: Beyond RIP Software
Most large format RIPs are fully featured digital front ends capable of managing jobs through their printer queues, but larger printshops may need a little more help. Nessan Cleary advises on large format printers should consider a workflow that centralises tasks before the job reaches the RIP.
Decarbonising the future
In the context of climate change, decarbonisation means reducing or eliminating greenhouse gas emissions. This article looks at three of the main sources directly affecting printing: the energy sector, transport, and heating and cooling buildings.
