FESPA Global Print Expo, European Sign Expo, Personalisation Experience and the inaugural Sportswear Pro will take place from 19-22 March 2024 at the RAI Exhibition Centre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. These parallel events will showcase a wealth of solutions for specialty printing, signage, personalisation and sportswear and leisurewear production.
Michael Ryan, Director of FESPA Global Print Expo, explains: “Our new show slogans for 2024 are designed to reflect the natural evolution since last year’s events, where we encouraged visitors to discover ‘New Perspectives’. These show slogans are ‘Opportunities, Uncovered’ for FESPA Global Print Expo, ‘Opportunities, Illuminated’ for European Sign Expo, ‘Opportunities, Created’ for Sportswear Pro and ‘Opportunities, Reimagined’ for the Personalisation Experience. They are designed to illustrate that there is always something new to discover and that the areas in which our visitors do business are often bigger than they think.“
“In our ever-evolving specialist printing industry, the possibilities are endless. With this in mind, we are delighted that a number of suppliers will be exhibiting their latest innovative solutions in Amsterdam and presenting new growth opportunities to our global community,” he continues.
Visitors to FESPA Global Print Expo, European Sign Expo, Personalisation Experience and Sportswear Pro 2024 will be able to marvel at a host of new technologies, media and consumables from AGFA, Antalis, DGI/d.gen, EFI, Elitron, Kongsberg, LIYU, Mimaki, Orafol, Sun Chemical and swissQprint, among others, who have already confirmed their participation. Among the textile printing exhibitors who have confirmed their participation are MHM, Monti Antonio, MS printing/JK Group and ROQ, as well as two other embroidery system suppliers.
In addition to the events, there will again be a seminar and conference programme in 2024. With informative content from industry experts on the business benefits of personalisation, the first day of the conference is reserved for the Personalisation Experience event. In their presentations on 20 March 2024, speakers will explain how personalisation can be used to attract and retain new customers. They will present current trends on customisation and the role of AI in personalisation. In line with Sportswear Pro, the focus of the second day of the conference (21 March 2024) will be on the possibilities in the production and finishing of sportswear and leisurewear. The latest trends, recent innovations and ecological benefits of “Circular Design” will be presented.
The accompanying event Personalise Make Wear, part of the Personalisation Experience and Sportswear Pro, will showcase the potential of personalised printed sports and leisurewear. Visitors to the show will be able to take part in expert-led tours to see how sportswear is made, printed and personalised using the latest technologies.
The 2024 event programme will also once again include the Sustainability Spotlight materials exhibition, where show visitors can learn more about sustainable, alternative materials to improve their environmental performance.
The World Wrap Masters are also back on the programme. On the first two days, vehicle wrappers from all over Europe will compete for the title of “Wrap Master Europe 2024”. This will be followed by the action-packed final round, where the regional winners will compete for the title of “World Wrap Master 2024”.
