FESPA launches first Digital Show At Fespa World Expo India
FESPA has launched a major new digital wide-format printing exhibition, called FESPA Digital Printing India, which will take place in Mumbai at the Bombay Exhibition Centre (BEC), 14th – 16th December 2008.
FESPA Digital Printing India has been developed in response to the fast-growing digital imaging market in the region. FESPA has excellent knowledge of both screen & digital printing markets all over the world and Mumbai was chosen as the most popular venue by exhibitors in the region.
FESPA aims to exceed 2000 sqm of exhibition space for the Digital show and also plans to run a Digital Conference alongside the show. FESPA will also form a Digital committee made up of leading digital manufacturers in India.
Frazer Chesterman, managing director of FESPA, says, “After speaking with some of the larger digital manufacturers in India - HP, Gandi and Aqua Tints it became apparent that there was a need for a purely digital printing exhibition in India. We will draw on our experience from launching the hugely successful FESPA India in 2005 and hope that the show has a similar impact in the marketplace. However, FESPA’s aim is not purely to be an exhibition organiser but to reinvest funds into the region’s industry in many different ways, providing printers with the support they need to be profitable.”
Speaking about the launch, Pankaj Goswami, Country Category Manager – Large Format Printing (Industrial Solutions), Hewlett–Packard India comments: "The digital printing industry has grown phenomenonally in the last couple of years and FESPA played a stellar role in this by becoming the first International company to put on a show in India in December 2005. The announcement of FESPA Digital Printing India 2008 is a testimony to the growing influence of the digital printing market in India and we at HP Scitex will look forward to a significant presence during the show. Such an occasion allows us to showcase our latest products and also invite key and prospective customers to the show to view these technologies. I wish the FESPA Digital Printing organisers our best wishes for the new year.”
