FESPA Global Print Expo in October as live event

FESPA promises to bring colour back with FESPA Global Print Expo, scheduled to take place during October 12-15 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

This will be the first FESPA live event in Europe since May 2019, following the postponement of all events during 2020 and early 2021 due to the COVID pandemic. There has been a strong demand for the live event.

Recent research conducted among FESPA’s audiences has revealed a strong demand for the live event, with 73 per cent of respondents seeing trade shows as an essential platform for reviewing and making future product purchases. Registration is now open for FESPA Global Print Expo 2021.


With a focus on supporting speciality print communities with sustained business recovery following the challenges of the last year, FESPA aims to deliver a COVID-safe environment that gives visitors and exhibitors the first chance to connect face-to-face in over 18 months.

Spread over six exhibition halls, print service providers and sign makers will experience the latest innovations in screen, digital, wide format and textile printing, from over 300 expected suppliers. FESPA’s popular Printeriors and World Wrap Masters features will also return to inspire visitors with the latest ideas, applications and materials in interior décor and vehicle wrapping.

European Sign Expo, the largest European exhibition for non-printed signage and visual communications, will once again be co-located with FESPA Global Print Expo, enabling brand owners and communications professionals to explore opportunities beyond print.

Neil Felton, CEO of FESPA commented: “Our audiences have told us that they need access to hands-on product demonstrations and to participate in face-to-face meetings with multiple suppliers to support their recovery, and they see FESPA Global Print Expo as a key milestone in their forward planning. Taking into account all information currently available to us, we’re re-launching FESPA 2021 this autumn with confidence that we can offer participants a live event that takes all possible health and safety precautions, while still fulfilling their key expectations of a FESPA show as an interactive, multisensory experience.”
