FESPA announces Southern European location for FESPA Global Print Expo 2020
FESPA Global Print Expo will return to Spain in 2020, this time to Madrid, with dates confirmed from 24 - 27 March 2020.
The Global Print Expo will be located at Fiera de Madrid and will cover screen, digital and textile printing and will be co-located with European Sign Expo.
Roz Guarnori, Exhibitions Director, FESPA, comments: “After three successive years in Germany, we are looking forward to moving back to a Southern European host city in 2020. Madrid was a clear favourite among exhibitors and visitors when we canvased their opinions on preferred cities for a FESPA event. This enthusiasm for the host city, combined with the success of the FESPA Digital event in Barcelona in 2012, makes us confident of delivering a compelling event in Spain in 2020.
“Spain features strongly among the leader board of visitors to FESPA Global Print Expo events and we have strong support from our national Associations in Spain, Portugal, France and Italy. These Associations collaborate annually to deliver a Southern European Congress, the next edition of which takes place in Lisbon, Portugal in June 2018. This popular educational and networking event will provide FESPA with a superb platform to gather regional insights that will help us to inform the development of the 2020 content programme to meet the specific needs of the region’s print service providers.”
The Spanish capital is the third largest city in the European Union and offers excellent international air links, with Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez Airport located just 12 kilometres from Madrid city centre and in close proximity from the exhibition centre.
