FESPA tradeshows remain a key platform for reaching decision makers in the sign and display market, and as such, they are a crucial element of HP’s go to market strategy. Reflecting this importance, we are proud to be a FESPA Corporate Sponsor and we anticipate another successful show in Munich.”
Commenting on the addition of new sponsors to the line-up FESPA CEO Neil Felton says: “This is the first time KIP and Mimaki have sponsored a FESPA event and we’re delighted to have them on board as partners for FESPA Digital 2014. Our sixth FESPA Digital show is the perfect environment for them to gain traction with an extensive international community of wide format printers.”
Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA, Mimaki Europe B.V., comments: “FESPA is one of the most important events for the industry, which is why we’ve chosen to sponsor FESPA Digital 2014 on all levels. In addition to being a Platinum Partner for FESPA Digital 2014, we’re also a Silver Sponsor for the FESPA 2014 Global Summit, where we hope to further support and disseminate the message that education is a prerequisite in this industry. We strive to develop a greener portfolio for our customers, hence we’re also sponsoring the Sustainable Business of the Year Award at the FESPA 2014 Awards.”
KIP states: “FESPA is to be congratulated on choosing Munich as the venue for FESPA Digital 2014. This event is the ideal location and platform for KIP to exhibit our latest colour printing technology to an educated audience in a most attractive major European city.”
Commenting on EFI’s partnership with FESPA Digital 2014, Paul Cripps, Vice President of Sales, EFI says: “Having experienced the resounding success of FESPA in London, signing up for FESPA Digital when it returns to Munich is a no brainer for EFI. FESPA remains the most exciting event in the large-format arena. We look forward to showing our cool-cure LED printers and the breadth of our integrated portfolio in Bavaria."
Yuval Neria, Corporate Marketing Director, Kornit Digital comments: “We are delighted to continue our support for the textile printing community with our decision to sponsor FESPA Digital 2014. The association’s exhibitions offer the most comprehensive platform for enabling Kornit Digital to consolidate and extend its reach into the direct-to-garment and textile printing markets. We are at the forefront of new technologies for digital production in this sector and FESPA provides the best environment for our technologies and products.”
Mark Alexander, Director of Marketing, Xaar, states: “FESPA is an important event for Xaar because it attracts visitors from all over the world who use or are planning to invest in the latest digital inkjet print technologies. Xaar inkjet technology continues to disrupt traditional processes and is transforming a number of industry sectors. Anyone who is interested in understanding the transformative benefits of digital inkjet should visit our stand where we will be demonstrating some of the very latest Xaar technology developments.”
Andrea Negretti, WW Business Manager, d.gen, comments: “It’s clear for d.gen that FESPA is doing a great job. We believe that the organisation is able to understand the market's necessity and bring the right interest to visitors. Regarding FESPA Digital 2014 in Munich, we believe that the EU market is going to recover from the crisis of the last four years. We are very positive and sure it will be a great and fruitful show. Being a Textile Sponsor is confirmation of something that we have built up in the last ten years. d.gen was the first company to believe that fabric was the future of the signage market and now everybody is going in that direction. FESPA approached us as sponsor as confirmation of our knowledge and authority in the field.”
Neil Felton concludes: “We’re thrilled to be working with industry leading manufacturers to develop FESPA Digital 2014. It’s great that these brands view FESPA as a pillar of their brand development and marketing activity. Our successful partnerships with these brands provide invaluable input for our shows and helps us to develop knowledge and industry leading events to the best of our abilities for both exhibitors and visitors. We look forward to working with each partner on another prosperous show.”
