FESPA has announced the launch of FESPA Asia which will take place from the 15-17 February 2017 at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand.
This latest event launch from the FESPA’s portfolio of trade print exhibitions, in cooperation with Asian Exhibition Services, has been designed to connect the screen, digital and textile printing communities across the ASEAN region.
Research shows that the print industry within this region is dominated by small and medium sized players looking for new technology solutions and access to training and learning opportunities.
FESPA’s divisional director, Ms Roz McGuinness said: “With the now well-established annual exhibition in China, it is time for FESPA to return to the Pan Asia region with FESPA Asia, and our natural choice was to return to Thailand. Our desire to build demand for print by reinvesting in our print communities is matched by the enthusiasm of our regional associations with whom we will be working closely to deliver both educational programmes to support the advancement of print in the region along with the exhibition bringing the global and regional suppliers of screen, digital print and signage to Thailand. Our aim is to have a lasting legacy across Asia through various initiatives in the years to come.”
David Aitken, managing director of AES, Asian Partners of FESPA Asia, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with FESPA to bring to the ASEAN market a regionally specialized event with a global reputation. As the AEC rapidly unfolds, providing extensive open-market opportunities in this expansive region, the strategic timing of FESPA Asia 2017 could not be better.”
FESPA Asia 2017 will be held from the 15-17 February 2017 at BITEC in Bangkok.
