FESPA Middle East expands floorspace due to exhibitor interest

FESPA has increased the size of its inaugural FESPA Middle East event (29 – 31 January 2024 at the Dubai Exhibition Centre) by 40%, thereby adding a third hall to the exhibition.

According to organisers, the decision follows significant interest in the event from global suppliers and regional distributors. To date, a range of global suppliers and regional distributors, representing over 130 brands have confirmed their presence at the event.

Bazil Cassim, FESPA regional manager, Middle East and Africa, comments: “We’ve committed to another exhibition hall due to the overwhelming demand and interest from the industry.

“We now have a very strong line-up of exhibitors confirmed for our first event here in the Middle East. And with it, we’re one step closer to fulfilling our goal to expand FESPA’s presence in this region and better support the growing speciality print and signage market here.”

At the show, Delegates will see digital wide format, screen and textile printing hardware, software, media, and consumables, as well as printed and non-printed signage solutions.

FESPA Middle East will also host the first World Wrap Masters Middle East regional competition, where vehicle wrappers will compete for the champion title and a spot in the 2024 World Wrap Masters Final in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The competition will feature a series of timed events requiring competitors to wrap cars and surprise objects against the clock.

The competition will be sponsored by Avery Dennison, Mactac and Wrapstock and judged by vehicle wrap experts Ole Solskin, Kiss Lajos and Ivan Tenchev. Visitors interested in vehicle wrapping can also access free daily training workshops and demonstrations.
