  • The Future is Bright – ‘Bringing Colour Back’

    20 Sep 2021 Arjen Evertse, General Manager Sales, Mimaki Europe

    The past 18 months have been challenging but the theme of FESPA’s Global Print Expo 2021 - Bringing Colour Back – seems fitting as we emerge from this unprecedented time. Bluer skies, greener pastures and golden opportunities are already evident in our industry and so I am confident we will all come through this with flying colours.

  • The parameters in the print industry have changed and volume requirements in the print industry have levelled out over the past 10 years.


    16 Sep 2021 Neil Felton, FESPA CEO

    I’ve recently been interviewing a group of leading printers from around the world for a FESPA video series, and what strikes me about all of them is their confidence. While they openly recount the challenges they’ve faced in their businesses over the last 18 months, they quickly turn to the positives, the lessons they’ve learned, the spirit of resilience they’ve seen in their teams.

  • Restrictions on fully-vaccinated travellers to The Netherlands from designated ‘very high-risk countries’ will be lifted with effect from 22nd September 2021, meaning that printers and sign-makers from these countries can travel to FESPA Global Print Expo and European Sign Expo 2021 in Amsterdam (12-15 October 2021) without fear of needing to quarantine on arrival.

  • Bringing Business Back: An Automated Future

    07 Sep 2021 By Graeme Richardson-Locke, Technical Lead and Head of Associations, FESPA

However, the speciality print sector, which FESPA represents, can still do more to achieve significant efficiency gains through process automation, particularly by streamlining workflows.
