FESPA’s flagship Global Print Expo has been rescheduled to take place in Madrid from October 6-8 2020, along with co-located events European Sign Expo and Sportswear Pro. "We’ve been overwhelmed by the strong demand from our global community for a FESPA platform in 2020."
"Extremely pleased': Neil Felton, CEO FESPA
The three exhibitions, originally scheduled to take place from 24 – 27 March at IFEMA – Feria de Madrid, were postponed earlier this month due to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 outbreak in mainland Europe.
“Despite the ongoing impact that the coronavirus is having on the speciality print sector, we’ve been overwhelmed by the strong demand from our global community for a FESPA platform in 2020,” said FESPA CEO Neil Felton.
“Therefore, we are extremely pleased to confirm that our shows will be going ahead on these re-scheduled dates and we’re very grateful to IFEMA team, who have been fully supportive of our decision under the extraordinary circumstances.
“Throughout this difficult time, we remain in close dialogue and consultation with our exhibitors to establish how FESPA is able to best support their 2020 product launches, engage with existing customers and nurture new prospects in the speciality print sector to fuel their future growth. We remain confident in the unique value of FESPA Global Print Expo for our specific stakeholder community.”
FESPA says it will provide further updates regarding the events “in due course.”
