With FESPA Eurasia in seven months, key exhibitors are already expressing their excitement and anticipation for another successful year.
The Eurasian event, which returns to the CNR Expo in Istanbul from 8-11 December 2016 for its fourth edition, has since its launch in 2013, firmly established itself in the region as the market-leading event for wide format digital, screen and textile print.
With a focused professional audience of over 9,000 individual visitors, FESPA Eurasia has experienced year on year growth in visitor attendance, with an increase of 36% since the inaugural show. The quality of visitors to the exhibition is also strong, with 82% of visitors to FESPA Eurasia 2015 involved in the overall decision-making process and with a collective equipment budget of €1.5 billion.
With sector-wide growth of digital and textile printing, it’s as important as ever for manufacturers and printers to come together at FESPA Eurasia to connect and share information on the new market possibilities and make genuine contacts with senior industry professionals.
FESPA takes an active role in involving its local associations and listening to their advice, so that it can continue to build strong events that aid the industry. Working closely with ARED, FESPA’s Turkish national association, as well as its other associations in Greece, Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine, who provide regional market knowledge, means that the exhibition is perfectly targeted to meet the needs of printers in Eurasia. These relationships, combined with FESPA’s 50 plus years of experience in organising high-calibre exhibitions for the global print community, means it can bring a world-leading exhibition to a regional audience.
Taner Guven, Owner, Optimum Reklam, says on his decision for exhibiting at FESPA Eurasia: “FESPA Eurasia is always a successful event for us. It’s a great touchpoint with new and existing customers from across Eurasia, as well as visitors from further afield. The diversity of visitors is excellent with people willing to invest there and then. Our participation at past FESPA Eurasia events has been extremely successful and has resulted in 12 sales on the show floor, as well as generating numerous leads. I’m already looking forward to this year’s event to see what it will bring. I’m sure it will be another productive show.”
