Asia Print Expo, the ASEAN region’s premier event for speciality print, takes place from 21 to 23 February 2019 at the BITEC Exhibition Centre in Bangkok, Thailand.
Asia Print Expo will be the number one destination for ASEAN print service providers (PSPs) and sign-makers looking for the latest wide format technology. With just under one week to go until the exhibition doors open, exhibitors are publicising what they will be demonstrating at the event. With 80 companies confirmed to exhibit, local and international PSPs will have a whole host of technology to discover, with some exclusive products being shown for the first time in Thailand.
Exhibitor highlights include:
- Best In Ground Co., Ltd (stand D20) will debut the Massivit 1500 3D printer by Massivit 3D for the first time in Thailand. The printer is a mid-entry-level industrial 3D printer that can print models up to 1.5m tall, 1.5m wide and 1.2m in depth. It is a fast 3D printer that uses Massivit 3D’s own proprietary GDP technology and is suitable for a range of markets.

The inaugural Print Make Wear Asia will also take place at Asia Print Expo, which is sponsored by Easiway Systems, Vastex and PSI Marketing.
Highlights from the sponsors include:
- Vastex will showcase its manual screen printing machine, which requires fewer operators resulting in lower overhead costs as well as a dryer and flash unit
- Gildan will present its printable garments, which will be printed live during the exhibition
- Easiway will demonstrate how 3-minute stencil reclaiming can be made possible by the Easiway SUPRA, which reduces pre-press staff and makes the most of mesh fabrics.
In addition, visitors can take advantage of the other free-to-attend visitor features, including the Wrap Masters Asia competition, where 30 competitors will battle it out to be crowned the winner, and a packed programme in the FESPA conference theatre.
