FESPA Eurasia 2014 being held at the CNR Expo in Istanbul, 4-7 December, will provide the print community with four action packed days to see the latest product innovations in wide format digital printing, screen printing, textile decoration and signage.
Michael Ryan, Group Exhibition Manager at FESPA comments: “We are working very hard to deliver an even more compelling exhibition for the region in Istanbul this year, and with the strong support of ARED - our member association in Turkey - the event is shaping up well and securing key confirmations every week. The success of last year’s event has given us a great platform to work from and with investment decisions generally made in January and February, the December dates for FESPA Eurasia 2014 ensure we are perfectly placed for the sector. We have also listened to our exhibitors and added an extra day to the show, allowing both exhibitors and visitors more time to conduct business meetings and finalise sales during FESPA Eurasia 2014.”
FESPA’s Regional Sales Manager, Betül Binici stated: “International brands such as Agfa, Mutoh, Reggiani, Konica Minolta, MS, Kornit and Roland and major Turkish suppliers who operate in the region such as Optimum Digital, SDS, Pigment, Sayar, Arasteks, BTC, and AIT have already confirmed their strong participation at FESPA Eurasia 2014,” she adds “75% of the stands have already been sold; this quick allocation indicates the confidence in the FESPA brand. Manufacturers want to join the success of FESPA’s 50 years of experience in organising events all across the world and their ability to deliver focused, professional and loyal international visitors.” Binici also highlights how FESPA’s Profit for Purpose business model means they will be reinvesting surplus revenues from the event back into the print community, both through ARED and educational content at the show.
In 2013, FESPA Eurasia was launched in Istanbul in partnership with ARED. Almost 7,000 unique visitors attended the exhibition from around 100 countries. Over a quarter of the visitors came from international countries such as Bulgaria, Iran, Greece, Russia and Ukraine.
